Description 1 online resource
Summary "Reading Mawsim al-Hijra ila al-Shamal: For Students of Arabic is intended for advanced students of Arabic who have studied the language for at least 2 years at the college level or the equivalent. The book is based on Tayeb Salih's novel Mawsim al-Hijra ila al-Shamal, a masterpiece in modern Arabic literature. This book is designed to accompany the novel, which the authors divided into 60 parts, each of which consists of 400-500 words of the original text. A lesson is built on each part and starts with a reference to the first and last sentences in it. This is followed by a list of new vocabulary and a variety of activities and exercises, some oral and some written, whose goal is to develop students' listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills and knowledge of Arabic language, culture, and literature. The book ends with a glossary of literary terms. The book's e-resources include a comprehensive glossary of words arranged by root, a glossary of expressions, and other resources. The book can be used as a main or a supplementary text in an Arabic language course or for independent study"-- Provided by publisher
