Collins Big Cat Arabic Reading Programme - The House of Wisdom: Level 11 (First edition)

Paperback

Level 11 books provide more literary language, more complex sentence structures and less support from illustrations. Characters are more varied, with action sustained over several pages. Non-fiction titles include glossaries where necessary. Sentences are still short for better understanding. However, grammatical vowel endings are more evident to encourage fluent reading and to provide familiarity with some higher-level features of written Arabic.

The House of Wisdom was a major intellectual centre during the Islamic Golden Age. The famous historian and translator Hunayn bin Ishaq tells us about this wonderful library and the achievements of the many scholars working there, and his time in charge of the translation section.
