The  Levantine Arabic Readers series aims to provide learners with much-needed exposure to authentic language. The fifteen books in the series are at a similar level (B1-B2) and can be read in any order. The stories are a fun and flexible tool for building vocabulary, improving language skills, and developing overall fluency. 

The main text is presented on even-numbered pages with tashkeel (diacritics) to aid in reading, while parallel English translations on odd-numbered pages are there to help you better understand new words and idioms. A second version of the text is given at the back of the book, without the distraction of tashkeel and translations, for those who are up to the challenge.

    Bought it yesterday and finished my first read-through. This is exactly what I was looking for! Being able to do extensive reading to help me improve my Shami is something that I have been desperately waiting for.

    It has been really encouraging to be able the entire text without tashkeel or translation and understand the story. I will now work through the material in more depth.

    It is a nice story about a realistic situation. Perfect for the adult learner!

    I will be buying all the books in the collection for sure. Looking forward to reading the Lebanese/Syrian ones too.

    I have been using these books (both the Egyptian and Levantine series) to improve my listening comprehension of spoken dialect. I have been studying the text, then shadowing the audio recordings repeatedly until I can do it without mistakes. After a few months of doing this practice daily, my listening comprehension has improved by leaps and bounds, even in dialects besides Egyptian and Levantine! I can’t say that I am now native level, but I can follow the story while watching movies and tv shows, which I have never been able to do before without subtitles. These stories are the perfect length and read at the perfect pace for this type of practice. I highly recommend them!!
