    • Immediately incorporates extensive use of authentic materials for reading, listening, and grammatical practice,
    relating abstract grammatical concepts to practical skills

    • Presents narrative-based content through audio and video media rather than written text to develop meaning-focused

    • Develops reading skills through the use of composed texts derived from the main narrative and authentic texts from
    newspapers and journals

    • Introduces grammar using the techniques of spiraling and inference, challenging learners to discover the grammar of
    the language by means of analogy, problem solving, and educated guessing

    • Introduces Egyptian colloquial Arabic through scenes based on the main narrative to promote the use of shared
    vocabulary and structure of the two registers, increasing listening comprehension skills
