Arabicwiz is an Arabic language resources site owned by Iman soliman and developed by a large team of Arabists and technologists. The Reading on line application is one of the many Arabic language resources developed by the Arabicwiz team.

Arabic Reading Online is an online, self-learning Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) Reading course. The course Is designed for non-native speakers of Arabic at all levels of proficiency.

Arabic Reading Online is a multi-level. It offers reading texts suitable for Beginners, intermediates (materials available) and Advanced students(materials still under development). The learner registers in the level most suitable to his/her language proficiency level.

Arabic Reading Online offers the learner a variety of reading passages that are classified according to the text type of each passage (e.g. informative, narrative, argumentative etc.). Each text type is further divided into topics of interest (e.g. under informative texts the learner can read about politics, culture, science, general knowledge, hobbies etc.). It is up to the learner to choose which text type to start with and which topics to cover before taking a test. However, guidance is given to learners at the beginners level regarding which text type to start with. It is necessary for a student, in order to move from one reading proficiency level to the other within the Arabic Reading Online course, to study and complete 3 lessons at least from each text type successfully.
