Free Online Arabic Short Stories for PDF Download, Stage 1, Children and Beginners
Updated: Sep 25, 2019
I have spent a great deal of time hunting the internet and exploiting google to find good quality online Arabic short stories for free download. Many leads and links would land you somewhere where you would have to purchase paperback or e-books for a good sum of dollars. You may consider this option, however, it is also useful to experiment with free downloadables to get more diversity and scope for learning without breaking the bank.
I have spoken in a previous post about "3asafeer.com", an online digital library and platform, which aims to provide: " quality, cost-efficient, trackable resources for reading in Arabic for kids. Along with a wealth of aiding materials, resources & worksheets for teachers to use in the classroom. With leveled content, based on the latest research in child Arabic literacy education." "3asafeer.com" is my preferred personal choice so far, as you can access the stories online or through a downloadable smart phone app. My daughter has really enjoyed reading the stories from the app, and she has even picked up the Arabic numbers 1-10 simply by using it.
