Primary Use: Answers to the exercises found in al-Kitaab fii Ta`allum al-`Arabiyya: Part Two 2nd ed. Format: Answers to the exercises separated by their respectives chapters Pages: 75
This is a no-frills key to the al-Kitaab: Part Two textbook. It has no table of contents and no index, and is written almost entirely in Arabic.
The key is separated by the units in the al-Kitaab: Part Two textbook that the various exercises correspond to. The exercises are not described. Exercises that have more than one answer, such as writing sentences that describe pictures, have no corresponding answers in the key.
As in al-Kitaab: Part One, the book contains the transcription of the sentences corresponding to the list of vocabulary words at the beginning of each chapter than can be listened to via the DVDs. It also contains the من القاموس 'from the dictionary' sentences as well.
How to Use It
The exercises in the key are all in the order that they appear in al-Kitaab: Part Two. However, the typeface separating the chapters is considerably smaller in this key, making it more of a challenge to find the particular exercise one is looking for. However, looking for the exercise is done in the same way as it is in the other al-Kitaab keys. If one wanted to look up the answers to exercise #3 in Chapter 4, simply flip to Chapter 4 (labeled الدرس الرابع in the key) and then look for the tenth exercise under that chapter, which will be clearly labeled in Arabic (in this instance تمرين 3).
