Arabic for Lifetakes an intensive, comprehensive approach to beginning Arabic instruction and is specifically tailored to the needs of talented and dedicated students. Unlike the other Arabic textbooks on the market,Arabic for Lifeis not specifically focused on either grammar or proficiency. Instead, it offers a balanced methodology that combines these goals. Frangieh has created a book that is full of energy and excitement about Arabic language and culture, and it effectively transmits that excitement to students.Arabic for Lifeoffers a dynamic and multidimensional view of the Arab world that incorporates language with Arabic culture and intellectual thought.
Bassam Frangieh is professor of Arabic at Pomona College. He previously taught at Georgetown, Yale, and the Foreign Service Institute. He is the author of Anthology of Arabic Literature, Culture, and Thought from Pre-Islamic Times to the Present, published by Yale University Press.
