The course is designed to train native English language speakers to Level 3 proficiency in comprehension and speaking, and Level 2 proficiency in reading and writing Arabic. (Native-speaker level is 5.) Phonology and orthography are introduced simultaneously in the first volume. The final volume (Volume 9) is a cumulative indexed English-Arabic, Arabic-English Word List.
