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.

    You need this series in your life if you are learning the Levantine dialects! I can’t stress enough how important reading is when learning a new language. So far I have read 2 books of the whole ‘Levantine Arabic Readers’ series. I loved ‘Petra’ – great story + high quality audio.

    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!

    What a great book! I really enjoyed the story. This reader seemed customized for my comprehension level. I was able to read without taskeel and follow along just fine, but there were still many words which I didn’t know. That ratio of known-to-unknown was just perfect! Playing the audio made me realize how poor my listening skills are in comparison. Now, I’m focusing on listening to the narration while reading with the tashkeel. I’ve improved a lot and am looking forward to my next Lingualism book!
