Arabic Reading Comprehension Practice For Beginners

Arabic Reading Comprehension Practice for Beginners

Below is an authentic reading passage for beginner Arabic readers. Like other reading comprehension practice drills on this website, the purpose behind this authentic passage is to expose learners of Modern Standard Arabic to real-life Arabic texts.

For this ILR level 1 passage, it covers a topic from day-to-day life that any learner of Arabic may encounter overseas in an Arab country.

You’ll notice the sentences are very short, and the text is not complex grammatically. However, depending on your exposure to Arabic, you may find the vocabulary a bit challenging.

The key is to look at the text holistically as you look for clues to understand it. If you are still finding it hard, look up the words on an Arabic-English dictionary. If you don’t have one, I recommend Hans Wher, hands-down the best Arabic-English dictionary in terms of value and size. Al-Mawrid Al-Wasit is the best dictionnary out there but it is a bit bulky and inconvenient to carry around. However, it offers both Arabic-English and English-Arabic dictionaries in one.

The most important thing is not to get discouraged and give up. Keep digging and searching online until you fully understand the details in this ad.

If you find this passage too easy, you can look at other reading comprehension practice drills that are more advanced such as these ILR level 2 passages.

For more reading practice and exercises, I recommend Arabic Stories for Language Learners . To expand your vocabulary, you may consider getting the Arabic Vocabulary workbook and practice regularly for a few weeks.

Tips for Arabic reading Comprehension:

  • Use what you know to understand what you don’t know. Rely on the context first before resorting to a dictionary.
  • Use cognates to increase your understanding of the text. For instance, you will encounter تليفون /tilifoon/ meaning telephone. Arabic text can contain a bun of cognates. Use them to your advantage.
  • Read the text more than once before you start taking as stab at the questions.
