The  Tunisian Arabic Readers series aims to provide learners with much-needed exposure to authentic language. The five 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 read the Tunisian stories. My favorite were the thrid and the fifth. Amal Mrissa is a very creative author. The narration was also very good.

    I purchased the whole bundle of readers and love each and every story. These books are great if you’re trying to learn the Tunisian dialect. They’re well written with side-by-side English translations so you don’t miss a thing. And the complementary audio track helps you with pronunciation and the accents. I really hope they make more readers!!

    I am adding a second review here… and it applies to all the Tunisian stories. I just want to say again in retrospect (there is over half I year since I read them) that the Tunisian bundle is perhaps the highest quality learning resource I have ever come across for any Arabic dialect… and the second reason is that I wanted to point future readers to using the site to look up individual words (because the English translation with the stories isn’t a word-for-word translation, thankfully and of course). By looking up words that are new for you, you can usually find them in on derja ninja, with sample sentences, so for instance if you see for the first time that a particular word means something unexpected in Tunisian, you can engrave the meaning to your head by seeing it used in the same meaning in their sample sentences (and you can listen to them too)
