Interview with Al-Kitaab Co-Author Abbas Al-Tonsi: Book Origins, Khaled & Maha, and Advice for Arabic Learners

If you've ever taken an Arabic class, you may have heard of "Al Kitaab"

The word means “the book” in Arabic — and it refers to الكتاب في تعلم العربية – A textbook for learning Arabic. When Abbas Al-Tonsi, Kristen Brustad (his former student), and Mahmoud Al-Batal wrote the first edition in the early 90s, they had no idea their material would attain such recognition on a global scale. Two editions later, Abbas Al-Tonsi chats with us from his office in Cairo about the origins of “Al-Kitaab,” Khaled and Maha, the “orange book,” changes in subsequent editions of Al-Kitaab, and his upcoming book for heritage learners.
