Reading about Arabic grammar is usually as thrilling as reading telephone directories. The author uses a new approach: he compiled over 270 interesting questions drawing from his years of studies in the Arab world to create a colorful journey into Arabic grammar.
However, if you want to reach an advanced level, it is not about learning vocabulary lists – it is about understanding the fascinating core of Arabic. This is what Arabic for Nerds is all about. It is specifically intended for intermediate learners.

REVIEWS and COMMENTS King’s College London: “Recommended for self-study (intermediate Arabic)”
C. Townsend: “Fantastic resource for advanced students. I’ve been stuck at 3/3 ILR in Modern Standard Arabic and really need something to break through. Finally there is a tool for students who want to move beyond al-Kitaab or Medina.”
Badrul Aini Sha’ari, Akademi Bahasa, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia): “I really like the book concept and his thorough research. Thanks for writing a great book on Arabic for non-native speakers.”
Marlborough College, England: “Recommended for Modern Languages Students”
Y. Lu: “Every serious Arabic learner should get a copy of this — whenever I have a question the book has an answer to it. I think this book is especially useful to students who have spent more than two years studying Arabic and who wants to understand Fusha grammar inside-out.”
