This blend of workbook and reference work aims to help you form and use the verb in Modern Standard Arabic correctly at a glance. Part 1 explains the verb structure and working. Part 2 is a set of 155 numbered tables showing all common verb patterns, arranged first by class or sub-class and then by the ten main forms. Part 3 is a list of common verbs, entered alphabetically by the 3rd person masculine singular (huwa) active form of the past tens.

The 155 verbs appearing in full in Part 2 are listed plus 1,094 further verbs, with a table number that allows the reader to where to locate the identical pattern in Part 2. Other helpful features include comprehensive indexes and an easy-to-read Roman transcription that reflects pronunciation rather than spelling. This is the perfect companion to the Basic and Intermediate Arabic Workbooks by the same author, expert step-by-step series of exercises and tasks for all learners of Arabic.

The author John Mace is one of the foremost writers today of teaching materials for Middle Eastern languages. He has worked in the Diplomatic Service, as a British Council lecturer, as a personnel officer in the Middle East and as a European Commission delegate. He is also the author of several other Arabic language learning titles from Bennett & Bloom, as shown elsewhere on this website.
