Our new secondary school/pre-GCSE series consists of three books aimed at 11-14 year olds.
Short passages and dialogues
Mind maps (powerful visual tools to simplify teaching and aid memorisation)
Clipart / illustrations
Vocabulary lists and expression lists
Easy verb tense tables
Colour differentiation in all the above, as appropriate
An additional piece of Arabic at the end of each unit
Two audio CD's providing recordings of all the lesson texts and audio exercises, plus recordings of all the additional pieces at the end of the units
A workbook accompanying each of the three books
This is the third book of the series, targeting beginners who can read the Arabic alphabet and comprehend simple sentences, and places emphasis on the reading and responding approach, with much more writing and speaking (role-play) involved than in the first two books of the series. Book 3 of the series consists of six units, four of which concentrate on an area of student life and two on the Arab World. Each unit ends with an article or short story that is related to the topic of the unit.
To assess the student's development, two short tests are provided at the back of the book.
