Marahil: lire et écrire le monde arabe

The Distance Learning Courses French Institute (CNED) and the “Institut du Monde Arabe” have been working together since 2002 to create and promote documents for learners of every level. Marahil, which means “steps” in Arabic, shows the different kind of writing that can be found in Arabic modern cities. Three destinations have been chosen: Morocco (described by a student visiting the country with her family), Lebanon (explained by a journalist) and Egypt (illustrated by an archaeologist). Many techniques are being used on this project: knowledge tests, pictures, videos, animations and a keyboard using Arabic symbols that appears on the screen.
