Focus on Contemporary Arabic is the fifth volume in the Conversations with Native Speakers series, which strives to offer pioneering multimedia language materials to students at the intermediate and advanced levels. These programs consist of a slim, user-friendly student textbook and accompanying online media that features interviews with a variety of native speakers filmed in the target language. These speakers represent all areas of the cultural spectrum, offering a realistic view of the diversity of the native-speaking populations of the target language. The video interviews broach an assortment of socially and culturally relevant topics and present students of the language with a glimpse into the complexity of both the language and the culture.

SHUKRI B. ABED is Professor of Philosophy & Director of the Arabic Program at the Center for Jerusalem Studies, Al-Quds University.

"I am very excited about Shukri Abed's book and DVD. There is no doubt that it is a very valuable tool for second year and above."—Clarissa Burt, United States Naval Academy
