A new website has been launched to teach Arabic language and culture and provide teachers and learners with free and up-to-date learning materials.

Nasser Isleem, an Arabic lecturer at NYU Abu Dhabi’s (NYUAD) Arts and Humanities Division who started, says it aims to be the go-to open source resource for professionals, educators, Arabic language instructors and learners.

“Mawaridarabiyya is a one of a kind website and is convenient for learners and teachers. It is very comprehensive, rich and informative and includes valuable information that many students and teachers seek and often struggle to find. The information and materials have been created and uploaded by educators dedicated to improving the teaching and understanding of the Arab language, culture and world,” Isleem said.

“We also urge users to share resources that may be useful for teaching and learning Arabic. Together we can create a valuable database for learning and knowledge. »

Offering material in Modern Standard Arabic, spoken dialects and Arabic culture, the user-friendly website provides users with access to different resources and a range of media to propel learning.


Some of them include educational technology tools, popular books in the field of teaching Arabic as a foreign language, names of organizations and conferences, scholarships and programs, centers and programs of languages, as well as YouTube channels focused on teaching Arabic and Arabic culture.

Last year, Isleem published the book Arabic Grammar in Action: Proficiency-based and Contextualized Activities, co-authored by Ghazi Abuhakema. Available on Amazon, the book includes a collection of teaching aids that target essential grammatical constructions to sustain performance at specific proficiency levels.
