Welcome to Elementary Arabic. This web site is designed to be a grammar guide for Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). The site is aimed at native speakers of English who are currently studying MSA. It is not intended to replace actual instruction, but it is meant to serve as a grammar reference for those that need additional explanation or clarification.
This web site is still in its infancy and currently only tutorials on verbs are available, but the site will be rapidly updated with more material. There are a few links that are not active yet, but will be available in the near future. In the meantime, please feel free to explore the site and email me with any questions at email@example.com
