Mastering Arabic Script: A Guide to Handwriting teaches Arabic handwriting in the form universally used by adult native speakers (riq'a) and compares it with naskh, the usual printed form. There are three parts to the book covering: the basic letter shapes, combinations of letters and an additional extended writing section. Clear examples, a wealth of practice material, insider tips from a leading expert, and lively activities and photos make the book easy to follow and enjoyable to work through. The book can be used to supplement the popular Mastering Arabic course or independently from it.

JANE WIGHTWICK and MAHMOUD GAAFAR share many years' experience in a combination of teaching, educational publishing and commerce in the Arab world. They are the authors of the best-selling Mastering Arabic (Palgrave Macmillan).
