  1. Now Available: The Integrated Approach to Arabic Instruction

    "Anyone who has seen what Munther’s students can do in Arabic knows that his integrated approach is decidedly successful. This book begins with a rigorous overview of past research about variation in Arabic. It then provides convincing argumentation in favor of adopting an integrated approach along with actual examples. Finally, it debunks opposition and shows that the integrated approach meets our students’ needs by reflecting the sociolinguistic realities of the Arabic-speaking world." - Jeremy Palmer, American University of Sharjah, UAE 

    Leading teacher of Arabic, Munther Younes, explores the realities of teaching Arabic as a foreign language (AFL) and outlines his groundbreaking approach to instruction, tried and tested over many years at Cornell University.

    The Integrated Approach to Arabic Instruction introduces teachers to the features of an integrated Arabic program—one that simultaneously teaches the two varieties of the language, Modern Standard Written Arabic and the dialect, in a way that reflects the authentic practice of native Arabic speakers. This pedagogy, Younes argues, is the most logical, effective and economical method of instruction as it prepares students fully for the realities of the Arabic diglossic situation.
