Title: DVD of Levantine Videos for Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program
Subtitle: From Alif Baa to Al-Kitaab Part Three
Written By: Kristen Brustad
Mahmoud Al-Batal
Abbas Al-Tonsi
URL: http://press.georgetown.edu/detail.html?id=9781589015098
Description:

One of the distinguishing features of the Al-Kitaab program is its
introduction of dialects alongside Modern Standard Arabic. In the dialogue
sections of each of the four volumes and on the multimedia, students can
follow the story of Maha and Khalid in the Egyptian dialect. The DVD of
Levantine Videos for Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program provides comparable
dialect materials now in the Levantine dialect. Filmed entirely in
Damascus, these video dialogues have been "translated" to reflect the
greater Levantine language and culture and follow the parallel story of two
new characters, Nasreen and Tariq. The DVD features Levantine versions of
all the dialogue clips that correspond to each of the program’s four
volumes, from Alif Baa through Al-Kitaab Part Three.
