This text-and-DVD package can be used to improve the conversational skills of second- to third-semester beginning Arabic students. It helps students as they begin to express themselves in the Arabic language, guiding them through language functions such as introductions, describing people and places, and discussing typical daily activities.

SHUKRI B. ABED is Professor of Philosophy & Director of the Arabic Program at the Center for Jerusalem Studies, Al-Quds University.

?Dr. Abed has produced a high quality text that will engage students in direct, practical activities and one that will facilitate simple, but lively class sessions. In this volume, the topics expand on the student?s immediate environment to more abstract concepts, such as religion, language, traditions, and more. Given the limited options for a proficiency-oriented classroom, it would be hard to find a better text than Spoken Standard Arabic. "?David F. DiMeo, The NECTFL Review
