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.

    I am learning Syrian dialect so initially I wanted to wait until the Syrian books will be available but I couldn’t wait any longer so I bought this book and ‘Petra’ and I am happy I did (now I am thinking about buying all Levantine Arabic Readers series). Highly recommend!

    I have six of the Levantine Arabic books now, 3 Jordanian and 3 Palestinian Arabic. I have to stay that these are superb resources for anyone wishing to learn colloquial, authentic Arabic as most people speak it in either Jordan and Palestine and of course across the Levant.

    I have loads of other resources Lingualism has put out in Levantine and all have furthered my speaking ability, confirmed by many native Arabic speakers I have engaged with. These latest story offerings are sorely needed in the marketplace and considering they come with audio as well, I cannot recommend them highly enough. All stories are engaging and insightful into Arabic usage but also into cultural nuance, so important when trying to gain a foothold into another language speaker’s world. This is not a paid review but a customer review who has invested time and money into many of Lingualism’s resources. Go on, buy these and take a massisve step toward your language achievement goals!

    I have been studying Levantine Arabic as a hobby for several years now and I am so exited about these books. I haven’t found any other books in Levantine Arabic on this level and it’s amazing how much I learn from each of them (I bought them all).

    I have read Fatimah’s life just once, but I have a feeling I will come back to it several times. I was inspired byt he article on the importance of extensive reading here on lingualism, and finally being able to read in dialect with the English translation on the opposite page allows me to develop my Arabic faster than ever before.

    Surprisingly entertaining, and of course a very good and handy resource for learners.

    This is the second Levantine reader I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy. The story is very realistic and relatable. I learned so many practical phrases to use when chatting with my friends about their lives and even discussing soap operas as relationships are an integral part of any good drama. I can’t wait to check out my next reader!
