Developing Writing Skills in Arabic

Product Description

Developing Writing Skills in Arabic by Taoufik Ben Amor

Developing Writing Skills in Arabic is specifically designed for upper-intermediate to advanced students who need to write Arabic for personal, professional and academic purposes.

Making use of reading comprehension, analysis of stylistic devices, a functional approach to grammar and vocabulary, and well-graded exercises, the book exposes the student to a wide variety of styles and registers. Each chapter starts with a passive approach by letting the students analyze and discuss a model text in the genre. It then moves on to a productive approach by expanding vocabulary, practicing using stylistic devices, studying grammar points pertinent to the main linguistic function of the chapter, and concludes with writing short and long compositions, both guided and free.

The following writing styles and genres are covered:

  • personal writing - greetings, congratulating, condolences, social and family contact 
  • professional writing - advertising, applying to a school, writing a resume 
  • giving instructions - notes, directions, recipes, technical instructions 
  • description and comparison - objects and places, people and characters 
  • narration - events and stories, autobiographies, biographies and diaries 
  • academic writing - stating an idea, explaining hypothesis, providing examples, facts and data.

Written by an experienced teacher and scholar of Arabic and tested with non-native students of Arabic, Developing Writing Skills in Arabic is the ideal resource to help students write clearly, coherently and appropriately in a variety of contexts.
