The Modern Standard Arabic Readers series aims to provide learners with much-needed exposure to authentic language. The thirty 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.

    A touching story about two friends during the beginning of the “Arab spring”. Not the most difficult story in the series and relatively short. The author builds up his story by giving dates for each chapter building up to a climax at the end, a nice change from the format of the other MSA readers.

    The audio files are clear and stories are very well written – but be careful as a learner relying on the tashkeel/harakat versions, which have errors. The sample first page of this story, for example, has the wrong tanween under ‘electronia’. I haven’t reviewed thoroughly for other errors as I don’t read the version with tashkeel, but this should have been picked up. I’m enjoying the series though.
