Book 1 Extension
"Gateway to Arabic Extension Book One addresses the needs of students who have completed Book Two of the Gateway series and wish to have the opportunity to practise further the skills they have acquired. This book aims to engage the student in a variety of language games, exercises and dialogue activities that will serve to reinforce the vocabulary, grammar and skills they have already learned in Book Two. In addition, it introduces additional extensive vocabulary, new sentence structures and conversational skills in a lively, interactive manner, and it is ideally suited for use in the classroom.
Gateway to Arabic Book Two marks the beginning of formal grammar and vocabulary learning and is suited to learners from the age of seven upwards. The book concentrates on non-verbal sentences and covers a wide range of useful, everyday vocabulary. Explanations of grammar points are kept to a minimum as far as possible at this stage, so as not to daunt younger learners. As with the rest of the ‘Gateway’ series, all Arabic text is fully vocalised throughout.
Book Three offers a step-by-step approach to learning past and present tense verbs, with plenty of opportunity for practice. Each point of grammar is reinforced through sample conversations that offer the student the chance to use the language in a meaningful context and develop confidence in self-expression.
Gateway to Arabic Book Four focuses on family relationships and life in the home. It builds upon the student's knowledge of past, present and imperative verbs by introducing some hollow, doubled root letter and 'hamzated' verb forms. Each topic is reinforced through the provision of realistic dialogues to enable the student to gain greater confidence and fluency in using Arabic.
Book Five focuses on air travel, meals and medical matters. It builds upon the student's knowledge of first form verbs by introducing various defective forms (verbs containing one or more weak root letters). The book also extends the student's understanding of cardinal numbers into the thousands and suggests practical applications for their use.
Book Six concentrates on teaching Form Two, Three and Four Verbs in a comprehensive manner, covering regular and irregular verbs in various moods and tenses. It introduces the subjunctive and jussive moods and the particles that govern them. The key theme running through the book is the weather and seasons and the student will learn to talk about the temperature and climate in various parts of the world at different times of the year. As usual, passages of dialogue and extensive exercises enable the student to put into practice the knowledge he/she has acquired.
Gateway to Arabic Book Seven adds to the student's knowledge of the derived forms of Arabic verbs by teaching Forms Five to Ten inclusive, supported by written exercises. The key theme running through the book is overseas travel, and dialogues include dealing with lost luggage at the airport, calling a taxi, booking a hotel room and exchanging money.
