More detailed Description by author Dr. Imran Alawiye for

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.
