This textbook is an engaging, highly illustrated guide to learning handwriting as opposed to the printed form of the Arabic script.  Well-formed and fluent handwriting is much admired throughout the Arab world.  The book teaches Arabic handwriting in the form universally used by adult native speakers (riq'a) and compares it with naskh, the usual printed form. There are three parts to the book covering: the basic letter shapes, combinations of letters and an additional extended writing section. Clear examples, a wealth of practice material, insider tips from a leading expert, and lively activities and photos make the book easy to follow and enjoyable to work through. The book can be used to supplement the popular Mastering Arabic courses or independently from them. Aimed at beginners or early intermediate learners of Arabic, Mastering Arabic Script is ideal for both self-study use and classroom courses.
