One of the distinguishing features of the "Al-Kitaab" program is its introduction of dialects alongside Modern Standard Arabic. In the dialogue sections of each of the four volumes and on the multimedia, students can follow the story of Maha and Khalid in the Egyptian dialect. "The DVD of Levantine Videos for Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program" provides comparable dialect videos now in the Levantine dialect. Filmed entirely in Damascus, these video dialogues have been "translated" to reflect the greater Levantine language and culture and follow the parallel story of two new characters, Nasreen and Tariq. The DVD features Levantine versions of all the dialogue clips that correspond to each of the program's four volumes, from "Alif Baa" through "Al-Kitaab Part Three". Third editions of the "Al-Kitaab" textbooks incorporate these videos alongside the Egyptian videos throughout. Language labs that purchase a copy of DVD of Levantine Videos for "Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program" will automatically receive rights to (a) post an electronic copy of the DVD on a secure (password-protected) network for use by current students and faculty at their institution; and (b) loan the number of purchased copies to students. For other permissions, please contact the press.
