Alkitaabtextbook.com - your media center for teaching and learning Arabic

Alkitaabtextbook.com is the home of the companion websites for the Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program. The Al-Kitaab Arabic language textbook program, published by Georgetown University Press, uses a communicative, proficiency-oriented approach with fully integrated audiovisual media to teach modern Arabic as a living language. The series focuses on developing skills in Modern Standard Arabic, spoken Egyptian and Levantine Arabic, and now also Lebanese Arabic.

The companion websites for Al-Kitaab, developed by Georgetown University Press, include interactive exercises as well as all of the audio and video you need to complete Alif Baa, Al-Kitaab Part One, and Al-Kitaab Part Two or to learn Lebanese with Haki bil-Libnani.

Now you can teach and learn Lebanese Arabic with the new Haki bil-Libnani: Lebanese Arabic Online Textbook and Companion Website to Al-Kitaab Part One, Third Edition. A completely new companion website, Haki bil-Libnani, can be used alone or alongside Al-Kitaab Part One, Third Edition and includes all of the MSA activities needed to complete Al-Kitaab Part One, Third Edition as well as interactive exercises, Lebanese grammar explanations, Lebanese culture sections, video, audio materials, and course management tools.

On all of these companion websites, you will find vocabulary and listening comprehension exercises presented with audio, close listening and speaking activities presented through audio and video exercises, and cultural background that will enrich your learning experiences. Most exercises are automatically graded for instant feedback, and the sites are also enriched with additional resources, such as searchable glossaries and grammar charts.

Teachers will benefit from the extensive course management system that allows you to track the progress of individual students and the entire class, customize grading options, and interact easily with your class.
