Companion Websites

Companion Websites on Quia
The Quia Books platform is being discontinued by its parent company. The old companion websites are available at books.quia.com only through December 31, 2019. After that date, no new classes can be created and no new accesses will be granted.

The Al-Kitaab Arabic Language Program includes audio and video necessary for learning Arabic. Beginning in January 2020, instructors and learners using the Al-Kitaab textbooks have two ways to access the audio and video and the homework activities: 

Companion Websites on Smart Sparrow

Each textbook purchase includes an access code for use on this new companion website. The websites include all of the audio and video, as well as all of the homework activities in the book, plus some extra practice drills. The companion websites for the Al-Kitaab textbooks are available on the Smart Sparrow platform. Instructors can request access at GeorgetownUniversityPressTextbooks.com and independent learners can also go here to gain access. Students in a course with an instructor should await instructions before entering their code. See the Smart Sparrow FAQs here: http://www.georgetownuniversitypresstextbooks.com/aero-faq.

Audio & Video Only

The DVDs are now obsolete but learners still need the audio and video. All of the audio and video that learners need to complete the activities and drills in the third edition books are available on this website, alkitaabtextbook.com. To watch and listen to them, select the book from the tab at the top of this screen and navigate to the lesson you are studying. Listen or watch as many times as necessary.
