Modern Standard Arabic

Modern Standard Arabic is the form of Arabic, which is used as the official language in Arabic countries today. It is the modern development of classical Arabic. Especially in the social media, Arabic is currently experiencing very rapid and profound developments, not only in vocabulary. Modern Standard Arabic is the written language of books, media and education and the spoken language e.g. in news in the media, in official speeches and in religious matters. However, the common language or local dialects differ greatly from this standard language depending on the country and region. It is therefore very important for all learners not only to actively master the Modern Standard Arabic but also to understand as many dialects as possible.

Designed for Arabic classes at universities, the textbook “Modern Standard Arabic – Integrating Main Arabic Dialects” by E. Schulz is considered as the standard textbook for Arabic at most German universities and far beyond the borders of Germany.

  • practical grammar
  • Introduction to main dialects
  • The vocabulary and grammar of the print version is based on an extensive frequency analysis with several million word positions. The texts for the frequency analysis were selected according to communicative aspects from the fields of history, society, religion, politics, sports, science, culture, literature, etc.
  • Thus, it is not about conveying what is particularly rare in Arabic, but about the important rules that are necessary for communication.
  • With a view to later participation in Arabic courses in Arabic countries and to facilitate the search for grammatical phenomena also on the Internet, the common Arabic terminology is listed.
  • The learners are enabled to master a wide variety of communication situations. Cultural, religious and historical knowledge with the appropriate vocabulary is also imparted in order to achieve an increase in knowledge.
  • Special attention is paid to the communication of recurring phrases in written and spoken language such as greetings, goodbyes, wishes, salutations, ideas, feelings, excuses, proverbs and idioms.
  • Since no one speaks Modern Standard Arabic as a native language, a completely new way of including the dialects is taken. From lesson 4 on, dialog texts will be heard both in the form of Modern Standard Arabic and in the dialect variants of the following main dialect areas:
    A. Iraq / Gulf / Arabian Peninsula B. Syria / Lebanon / Palestine C. Egypt D. Maghreb
  • The original content is preserved, but the linguistic means of the respective dialect are used to express this content. There are also exercises for listening comprehension in dialect. The students are thus gradually enabled to understand conversations in a dialect. It is expressly not intended that the learners actively speak any dialect.
  • Whoever successfully learns Arabic with this textbook should reach level A2 after lesson 12 and levels B1 – B2 after lesson 24 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
