New release: ARABIC for NERDS 2

Have you been in the following situation? You know every single word in an Arabic sentence, but you don’t have a clue what the sentence is all about? Well, the painful reason is: you don’t understand the grammar. ARABIC FOR NERDS 2 can change that.

This 828-page-book aims to transform grammar, a subject hated by many people, into an understandable an enjoyable subject.


Arabic for Nerds 2

A Grammar Compendium – 450 Questions about Arabic Grammar. 

ARABIC FOR NERDS 2 will improve your understanding of written Arabic texts dramatically. It helps you to achieve your final goal: the superior level (C2).

ARABIC FOR NERDS 2 is a grammar compendium. It gives you all the tools that you need to properly analyze any Arabic sentence – no matter if it is taken from a children’s book or the Holy Qur’an.

This is not another boring grammar book. ARABIC FOR NERDS 2 will teach you in an entertaining way how to dissect a sentence, how to identify the function of letters, words, and syntax – in short: the I’rab (إِعْراب).

Imagine pushing entire sentences into an MRI machine. After we have examined the structure, we put single words under a microscope. Eventually we will know how sentences work or why they don’t work.

This book is thoughtfully structured to guide you through

  • the jungle of case endings
  • playing with word order
  • understanding fine points of Classical and Modern Standard Arabic,
  • and how to avoid common mistakes.

Every Arabic sentence is fully vowelled (Tashkeel) and translated into English.

It is specifically intended for advanced learners.
