THE MEDINAH ( MADINAH)ARABIC COURSE FOR CHILDREN: TEXTBOOK LEVEL ONE
THE MEDINAH ARABIC COURSE FOR CHILDREN :
TEXTBOOK LEVEL ONE
This is 'Textbook Level One of the 7-book series 'Medinah Arabic Course for Children' aimed for first year elementary school children. The series contains three textbooks, three workbooks and a calligraphy skills book. ('Arabic Calligraphy Made Easy')
It has been developed, modified, improved and tested over a period of several years to make it as suitable as possible for children learning Arabic for the first time (specifically non-native speakers) and particularly for those who are just able to recognize Arabic letters and sounds.
It is a full-color, A-4 sized book filled with pictures, illustrations, and large sized fonts appropriate for children, as well as extra pages for dictation at the end of the book. Additionally, it has been printed on non-glossy paper and therefore can be written on in pencil, and allows for easy erasing.
'Textbook Level One' is so easy that virtually anyone with basic Arabic skills can teach it. This is especially true for those who have undergone Dr V. Abdur Rahim’s famous 'Medinah Arabic Course' (the adult series).
It contains 11 chapters, and is 88 pages long.

HOW THIS BOOK WAS MADE
This book was created with Microsoft Word 2007. Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (Middle Eastern versions) were used for the drawings, illustrations and pictures which were then inserted into Word. The Word document was converted into a PDF using Adobe Acrobat Pro.
Only Traditional Arabic Bold was used which I’ve modified using a font creator program; bold dark blue for captions, bold pink for feminine verbs, bold purple for text, and bold brown for examples. Font size begins at 70, and ends at 36. For page numbers I've used Simplified Arabic as I've found it to be a bit easier to distinguish.
Thank you! Shukran!
