Description

Designed for use in the classroom, but equally suitable for self-study, Media Arabic provides the basic skills required for comprehension and news gathering from Arabic radio, TV and newspapers. Based on recent news material from newspapers and the spoken media, the course assumes knowledge of no more than the basic grammar and a restricted vocabulary, and can be used by undergraduate students, businessmen and journalists. An accompanying CD of BBC World Service recordings is available only from the publishers: contact EUP on +44 (0)131 650 4218.show more
