Read~Verse based its powerful Arabic learning database on the most widely consulted book in the Middle East, The Koran, said by scholars to be the complete, technical source for Arabic language. As with the King James version of the Bible and its influence on English, the Koran is a treasury of Arabic literature that has kept the Arabic language alive and vibrant. With this dynamically rich resource we are able to offer students online, through the Internet, an abundant Arabic vocabulary list of over 17, 000 words (the average person's vocabulary is in the range of 5000 words) with sentences that illustrate the usage of these words. In addition the database includes Arabic word roots for over17,000 words, making it the largest offering of Arabic word roots on the Internet.
Read~Verse has several search engines that can help students to easily and quickly find correct information. In addition, a translation task to one or many of your students can be assigned to critique the translations of 4 different authors against the Arabic text. You can have up to 6236 unique critiquing tests for your students. This unique teaching tool with its huge database was designed to provide Arabic instructors with a very large volume of materials for testing the competence of Arabic learning students at any level. Again, the database is based on the Koran, which we consider the ultimate Arabic language testing document. Students who proficiently translate a verse from the Koran to English can be said to have a command of the Arabic language.
