"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.


This book covers:

• Personal details: talking about oneself
• Likes and dislikes
• Moving house: rooms, furniture and household items
• Talking about countries, nationalities and languages
• Everyday activities and hobbies
• Shopping: shops and their merchandise
• Occupations
• Comprehensive colours and their usage
• Animals: pets, zoo and farm animals
• Opposites
• Prepositions: asking and describing where things are
• Introduction to simple forms of past and present verbs
• Extensive classroom language games and activities
• Reference list of nouns and their plurals"

 

More detailed Description by author Dr. Imran Alawiye for gatewaytoarabic.com

The third book in the series is called ‘Gateway to Arabic Extension Book One’, though perhaps it should be regarded as ‘Book 2B’ of the series. It serves to soften the transition from the non-verbal sentences of Book 2 to the more grammatically challenging verbal sentences of Book Three, which would be of particular benefit to children of late primary and early secondary school age (9 to 12). Although the book does touch upon some simple verbs, it is not grammar intensive. Rather, it is more tailored to classroom games and activities and it reinforces and builds upon the vocabulary and sentence structures taught in Book Two. The introduction of new sentence patterns such as, ‘I have x but I don’t have y’, ‘I like x but I don’t like y’, ‘Who is this and what is he doing?’ gives the teacher scope to explore a variety of subject areas and vocabulary with the class. The introduction of passages of dialogue provides plenty of scope for role playing activities.

 

(Page 3) For example, here on page 3, we have a passage of Arabic together with the new vocabulary and a written exercise, based on describing where people are with respect to the rooms they are in.

(Page 8) A passage of dialogue in the form of a guessing game reinforces and builds on the new vocabulary

(Page 42) Students are encouraged to play similar guessing games by working in pairs.

 

Some of the topics covered in this book include moving house, a trip to the zoo, pets and other animals, describing what languages one speaks, providing personal information, talking about one’s hobbies and activities, as well as shops and their products. Like the rest of the Gateway to Arabic series, the book is enlivened through the inclusion of supporting illustrations.

(Cover image) Gateway to Arabic Book Three

 

The materials in Book Three and upwards are best used with secondary school students or above – I would suggest a minimum age of eleven upwards. The primary objective of Book Three is to introduce students to regular triliteral first form Arabic verbs in the past and present tenses.

(Page 12) Here, having learnt to conjugate the verb ‘he wrote’ (kataba), students are given the opportunity to conjugate ‘he studied’ (darasa) and ‘he drank’ (shariba) for themselves. The concept of word patterns and word roots is also introduced in this book, as is the correct word order for verbal sentences and the agreement of verbs and number.

(Page 17) Students are also taught noun and adjective endings in the nominative, accusative and genitive cases in their defined and indefinite forms, as well as their usage in sentences. The use of the genitive to express possession (idaafah) is explored in some depth.

Other areas covered by this book include the attached and detached pronouns, comparative and superlative adjectives, cardinal numbers up to nineteen and ordinal numbers from one to ten; and the construction and use of the imperative. One of the key new areas of vocabulary introduced is the school timetable.

 

All materials are supported through passages of dialogue, written exercises and vocabulary boxes. A glossary of the nouns used within the book together with their plurals, as well as a list of the verbs used, listed in the third person masculine singular past and present tenses, are also provided for ease of reference. Furthermore, an audio recording of the materials in this book is available as a set of four audio CDs.
