EGYPTIAN ARABIC: Easy Stories With English Translations is a fun yet challenging collection of simple, short stories aimed at both young and adult learners of the spoken language of Egypt.


Designed with high-beginner to low-intermediate learners in mind, this book will improve your comprehension and build on your vocabulary as you progress through each carefully crafted mini story.

Our collection of easy stories progresses in length and difficulty, mindfully written at the student's level, making it a perfect literary tool for solo learners, teachers and parents.

Inside you'll find:

  1. 12 mini stories that increase in length and difficulty as you progress.
  2. Each story covers a particular theme and uses intentional vocabulary and expressions related to that theme.
  3. Comprehension exercises (in Arabic) designed to test your understanding of the text.
  4. Vocabulary lists of all key terms used in each story.

Importantly, these stories have been written purposefully in the spoken vernacular of Egypt. No standard or formal dialect.

You'll read as you hear people speak naturally in Egypt.

About the author

Frustrated with the tremendous lack of quality material for learning spoken Arabic dialects, Donovan developed Talk In Arabic as a one-stop resource to supplement students with natural, quality learning material in spoken Arabic. The site has already attracted tens of thousands of dedicated Arabic learners from around the world.
