When I completed the exercises I realized it gave me a better understanding of the language right away and it's is easy to take with you on the go and durable. There is complex sentence structuring in some of the handwriting exercises. Recommend:)
I am glad I bought the book, because it was very clear and easy to understand, while the written Arabic component of the so-called introductory Ultimate Arabic Beginner-Intermediate text basically zooms from what (in the Canadian public school system) might be around a grade 2 to Grade 11 level in the first three chapters.
Write It in Arabic offers a very clear guide to Arabic script, presented in alphabetical order. It explains the characters, provides five examples of different words using each letter, and offers many exercises for practising (including ones you can trace, which is not as crazy as it might sound). It also shows the differences between printed script (as in newspapers) and handwritten script - again, very useful.
It was frustrating, though, to start with Write It in Arabic only to find, in moving on to the Ultimate Arabic Beginner-Intermediate text, that there are half a dozen or more character annotations (that modify consonants to create vowels) which Write It in Arabic essentially ignored until the end. The reason this was frustrating was that I had begun to create flash cards of the Arabic words given for practice, to build up a vocabulary - only to discover when I moved to the other book that most of the words lacked the character annotations and were incorrect. This meant I had to redo all of my flash cards - and since I am doing this at night, usually after 9 pm, after work/making dinner/doing laundry, just imagine my joy at the inefficient use of my time.
While I wish the author had provided the 'complete' characters from the start (not leaving it as a nasty surprise to the end), I found the book useful and would recommend it to others.
I would always face the problem of poor Arabic writing and frequent mistakes and blunders from the students due to not having a proper, systematic instructional text that could help in this regard.
However, "Write it in Arabic" was the answer to that problem. It is simple, straight-forward and practical. I love it and the students love it. Very USER-FRIENDLY. I think it should be included in all beginners Arabic curriculums.
