Collins Big Cat Arabic Reading Programme - Karim’s new kumma: Level 9

Paperback

Level 9 books are similar in complexity to level 8, with strong patterns and similar events and episodes. Non-fiction titles use non-fiction tools – including signs, labels, captions and diagrams – where necessary. Single-word spacing is used from level 9 upwards. In addition, very high-frequency words appear consistently without vowel markings. These features will help the students get used to the traditional norms of printed Arabic.

Kareem and his family have gone on a road trip in Oman, from Sohar to Sur. They wanted to watch the baby green turtles, but got more than they expected!
