"Specifically designed for students of Arabic, this fully illustrated rendition of the Arabic literary classic enhances students{u2019} reading, listening, speaking and writing skills through the medium of these fun, engaging and culturally relevant tales. The tales are presented in simplified language providing learners of Modern Standard Arabic access to this masterpiece of Arabic prose. In addition to the simplified versions, three tales are presented in Classical Arabic to give learners a feel for the original, while two tales are presented in both Classical and Modern Standard Arabic for comparison. Each tale is fully supported by a range of comprehension, vocabulary-building, and grammar reinforcement activities and exercises. An Arabic introduction outlines the historical context of the original Arabic text and its role in Arabic literature. Approximately three hours of audio material, containing the texts read by native speakers, is available to download freely online to help develop the learner{u2019}s listening skills." from the publisher
