Musical Arabic is an innovative collection of downloadable worksheets / MP3 combination that pleasantly teaches and reinforces Modern Standard Arabic in a fun and non-threatening way. The whole collection contains the scripts of the 21 lively chants, rhythms and songs (alphabet, birthday, family, countries, days, everyday expressions, possessives, simple verb conjugations, etc.) in both Arabic script and phonetic (Romanized or transliterations) scripts for easier understanding by all students. There are many exercises that follow the lessons of the songs and also a picture glossary so that the learner may understand the songs without cumbersome translations. Musical Arabic is used successfully in many elementary, middle and high schools as well as colleges and institutions across the world. Musical Arabic can be used either as a supplement or as a basis around which the rest of the curriculum is based. It is a good addition to Alif Baa or Al-Kitaab or other excellent series. I wrote and recorded “Musical Arabic” so that I, a teacher and language learner, could learn Arabic a way that would work well for me and others like me. As Oraib Mango, Arabic Instructor at ASU (Arizona) says, “ I like to use music in my classes because it offers students other ways to learn. I usually use Musical Arabic to supplement the material that we study in the textbook. For example, when we go over numbers, we listen to the song about numbers. Many students find that it helps them a lot to retain the vocabulary words and expressions when they are accompanied by music. I find useful the songs about: numbers, days of the week, colors, interrogatives, countries, fruit, weather, conversation, pronouns and others.” * Only $40 - If purchased separately, this bundle would cost $63!
