Easy Arabic Grammar 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This is a good clear intro to some of the essential grammar of Arabic. It's highly readable. This can also be considered a beginning Arabic primer, as many simple vocab words are gradually introduced, and with the imaginative activities you do get some practice reading and writing Modern Standard Arabic. There is an intro to the Arabic root system, but it's not comprehensive enough. This is one item I would say is a deficit: the root system is one of the most important aspects of the language, yet it's only touched upon. The book consists of 20 chapters total. The first 15 chapters are excellent and very clear - lots of simple examples and exercises. But the last five chapters get quite dense and are much harder to follow. I think they tried to jam too much info into the last quarter of the book. They also seem to assume knowledge of Arabic in the last five chapters for the exercises that you don't have. So for these chapters, I recommend going thru them more slowly, with another book (and maybe a dictionary) to guide you. In any event, this can be used as a handy reference in conjunction with other, perhaps less readable books.
