Awesome and detailed tutorials in Classical Arabic !

I stumbled on these awesome and extremely detailed tutorials in the Classical Arabic Language.

They are designed to allow an english reader to teach herself a good deal of the theory behind syntax, morphology, and other essential topics in Ancient classical Arabic.

Each page has sub page sections to click on below. I’m finding them fascinating and this material is rarely covered in english books on the language. Anyone teaching herself Arabic – or just interested in knowing a bit more about the language would find these fascinating.
