What makes these texts quick and easy?

These texts are designed for beginning (A1-A2 level) learners. They use simple language and grammar and cover a variety of topics and vocabulary that might be interesting or useful to beginning learners. In addition, the texts are short, so they can be read in a short amount of time, giving you the opportunity to practice your reading skills without feeling overwhelmed.

Texts offer a great way to learn new vocabulary and grammar in context. They also provide an opportunity to practice reading comprehension. By reading short texts on a regular basis, you will improve your reading skills and become more familiar with the language.

How to use this book

You can use this book in a number of ways. You can read the texts on your own, or you can read them with a teacher. You can also listen to the audio recordings of the texts and read along. The free audio tracks are available to download below.

You can use the English translation following each text to help you with unfamiliar words and phrases.

You can also use the questions at the end of each text to check your understanding and practice speaking or writing your answers.

If you are reading with a teacher, the teacher can help you with any words or concepts that you don’t understand. The questions at the end of each text can also be used as a starting point for discussion.

You can also use the texts to practice your writing skills. After reading a text, you can try writing your own version of it. This will help you to internalize the language and improve your writing skills.

This book is available in several languages, so you can read the same content in different languages and compare the texts.

This can be useful for aspiring polyglots who want to learn new languages, or for anybody who wants to better understand how different languages work.

No matter how you use this book, I hope that you find it helpful and enjoyable!

AI wrote this book!

AIs are becoming increasingly good at writing texts that are hard for humans to tell apart from ones written by other humans.
Yes, that’s right – an AI (artificial intelligence) wrote all the texts in this book! (Including what you’re reading right now!)

But don’t worry, human native speakers translated the texts into Lebanese Arabic and recorded the audio, so everything is correct and authentic.

But why would anyone want an AI to write texts?

Well, there are several reasons. For one thing, it’s fun! It’s interesting to see what an AI comes up with when left to its own devices. Sometimes the stories are silly, sometimes they’re serious, and sometimes they’re just plain bizarre. But they’re always entertaining.

Another reason is that it can help language learners. By reading texts that an AI has written, you can get a lot of exposure to simple language and grammar. This can help you build up your reading skills and become more confident in your ability to understand the language you’re learning.

So go ahead and dive in! Read the texts and see for yourself how an AI can write simple, easy-to-understand texts.

I hope that you enjoy reading these texts as much as I enjoyed writing them and that they help you in your language learning journey!

    Very well constructed short stories in Lebanese Arabic. The diacritics and audio tracks are also very helpful for comprehension. The stories are short enough to not overwhelm the reader, but are still long enough to provide a lot of new vocabulary and material to study.

    I appreciate the A1 / A2 level resources and short stories being made here for Levantine Arabic. This is a great start for someone who isn’t quite ready yet for more advanced vocabulary. I tried reading An Ambious Young Man (B2), but it was too advanced for my level. I recommend this as an entry into reading comprehension for the Levantine dialect.

    Hopefully there will be a Jordanian variey of this series someday!

    It’s great that this is available, as such resources are rare, especially for Lebanese. I like how the vocabulary gets repeated, and how different genders and tenses are introduced for otherwise familiar words. The coloured diacritics are a very nice touch too. There are some slightly strange sequences, but as this is really about absorbing structures and vocabulary rather than reading great literature this is not a major problem. Likewise, in trying to match the translation very closely to the English original there are some slightly awkward phrases (according to my teacher), but this is a minor problem. I would have liked to see a side-by-side translation rather than the English following the Arabic, I think that would make it much easier to compare the texts, and it would be very easy to do. But all in all, especially for the price, this is a wonderful little book and I’m glad I have it to work with.
