B1, B2

In British Colonial Egypt, Officer Qassem Sultan Afifi is sent to Alexandria to investigate the death of an Englishman. But will his own past be dug up in the process?

The Egyptian 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 really enjoyed this one, it’s a wonderful products. It’s exciting like a true Egyptian mystery, it’s wellwritten and contains many Egyptian expressions. The only con is that the story was too short and I think it’s a bit sad that there’s no vocabulary list at the back of the book.
