Jusuur 1

Beginning Communicative Arabic

Jusuur 1 presents a well-rounded curriculum that encourages active communication in Arabic from day one and is suitable for engaging students at a variety of levels including high school, community college, and four-year colleges.

Students learn the letters and sounds of Arabic with the accompanying Jusuur 1 Arabic Alphabet Workbook, while they simultaneously use Jusuur 1 to work through thematically organized lessons on such topics as greetings, hospitality, free time, and family. Jusuur 1 invites students to make the linguistic, social, and cultural connections key to language acquisition through carefully scaffolded vocabulary and grammar activities, cultural explanations, and frequent opportunities for reflection. A series of companion videos, filmed in Jordan, offers a unique introduction to common everyday interactions in the Arab world.

Jusuur 1 is the first of two books in the Jusuur Arabic Language Program; students who successfully finish the program will be able to communicate at novice-high or intermediate-low levels of proficiency.

The Jusuur curriculum, which draws from the pedagogical strengths of the best-selling Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program, provides students with a wealth of written and audio-visual materials to develop skills in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Instructors will benefit from extensive complementary instructor's resources, including teacher's guides, worksheets, and audio recordings, making it easy to design an enriching and engaging experience for students.

Reviews

"Appropriate for both middle and high school students, Jusuur incorporates a myriad of interesting, creative, and culturally relevant activities into its curriculum. For K-12 teachers accustomed to making all of their own materials to supplement a dry textbook, Jusuur will be a welcome relief." — Joseph Sills, middle school and high school Arabic teacher, Friends Seminary
