Beginning English for Arabs: an instructor's manual.

The purpose of this introductory course is to serve as a guide and manual to the Arab instructor. It is an aid to help solve the problems of teaching English as a foreign language.

With this in mind, I planned this introductory course to establish fundamentals of language in the learner's mind..
