Now Is the Time to Learn Arabic

Share Article (the Light Inc.) assigned as the distributor for Takallum Set, a Comprehensive Arabic Course with modern methodology and up-to-date digital resources, for the North America Region.

Arabic ranks as the fourth most widely spoken language in the world and according to the British Council’s Languages For The Future Report, Arabic is listed as the second most important language in the future.

Learning a foreign language has always been an essential part of people’s lives and language teaching materials have always had an important role to play in the language learning process. When looking at language teaching materials, you will find that there is a far greater range of coursebooks and materials available for teaching English than for any other language.

The choice of coursebooks and teaching materials for languages other than English is far more limited, and the books are less developed in terms of methodology and content. Arabic is no exception.

To fill the gap in the Arabic teaching market and to address the need for a modern Arabic coursebook, Dar-al Nile, a publishing house based in Cairo in Egypt, has developed a dynamic new series of Arabic coursebooks with a team of experienced Egyptian authors. The series is called At-Takallum. (the Light Inc.) assigned as the distributor for Takallum Set for the North America Region. Company says: "Desk copies and sample chapters are available for interested parties.". The Takallum Set could be reached at

Arabic is not only important because it is the fourth most widely-spoken language in the world, but also because it is the original language of the Quran. This being said, most Muslims today, tend only to learn the Arabic alphabet with a view to reading the Quran. They don’t learn the language to enable them to communicate in Arabic.

One of the main reasons for this is the continued use of outdated teaching and learning materials which follow traditional and old-fashioned methods rather than employing the innovative and communicative methods used in most modern language coursebooks today.

Another reason is that Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) has been ignored and, as a result, even after 20 years of studying classical Arabic, students will find that they are unable to communicate properly in modern Arabic or understand Arabic newspapers. As At-Takallum was specifically written to address these difficulties, the series has been widely acclaimed and, since its publication in October 2014, has been adopted by institutions around the world, from the USA to the UK, from the Balkans to Africa.

With its up-to-date teaching techniques, its simple-to-complex approach that helps learners to feel comfortable and ready to face the challenge of learning a new language, its illustrative artwork, its simple and easy-to follow layout, along with high quality print and supported by dedicated online materials including skills practice, and progress tests and glossaries in 15 languages to support both students and teachers, At-Takallum is leagues ahead of other teaching sets.

The ideal age groups for this comprehensive set are young adults and adults. Secondary Schools, Arabic Language Institutes, Universities with Arabic Prep Schools and Private Tutors can all benefit from this brand-new teaching set. (the Light Inc.) has headquarters in Clifton, New Jersey along with its Brick and Mortar bookstore and Cafe House at the same location. Antstores is in business since 2001. It is conveniently located in downtown Clifton with public transportation to New York.
