Some lessons discuss old Arab cities, such as Jerusalem, \r\nAmman, Sanaa, and Gaza. The cities are introduced and their \r\ncivilizations and artifacts discussed. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nThis book also takes into consideration the different backgrounds \r\nof students, such as medical doctors and foreign students’ need to \r\nvisit hospitals during their stay in an Arab country. A lesson entitled “A \r\nVisit to the University Hospital” was thus added and includes the main \r\nterminology a patient and doctor might need. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nThe texts are short and graduate from simple to more complex in \r\na manner that is in line with the needs of students and their linguistic abilities. \u003cbr\u003e \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nIn every lesson, a text is first introduced, followed by a question \r\nand answer comprehension section. This is followed by linguistic \r\nexercises and a demonstration of some grammatical and conjugational \r\nconcepts that are employed within the context of the topic. A listening \r\ntext that is related to the lesson topic is included, and finally, a writing \r\nexercise that is also related to the topic of the lesson. Every lesson \r\nthus handles the four language skills and trains students on them \r\nusing the linguistic content of the main text. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nBecause of the complex and difficult nature of teaching listening \r\nskills and the need to assist teachers and students in this important \r\nundertaking, I felt it necessary to pay detailed attention to listening \r\nskills. The purpose of listening texts is to gradually develop students’ \r\nability to comprehend spoken Arabic. \r\nThe listening texts selected are thus relevant to the original text; yet, students are not expected to know or understand all the terms that occur in the listening text. What is important at this stage is for students to be able to understand the \r\nGist of the text. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nStudents can conduct an oral question and answer exercise with \r\nthe assistance of the instructor using the questions and exercises in \r\nthe book to further their comprehension of the listening text. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nOne of the easiest ways to teach listening skills is for the instructor \r\nto task his \/ her students with listening to the text at home – not as \r\na homework assignment; rather, so as to train their ears on listening \r\nArabic while giving them the freedom to listen to the text as often as \r\nthey wish since these texts are recorded on the enclosed CD. \r\nListening skills should be taught in a language lab. Students are \r\nasked to listen to the text twice, and then the instructor asks them \r\nto determine the main idea of the text. After surveying the students’ \r\nresponses, the instructor writes down the answer on the board, or \r\nasks a student to do so. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nThe instructor then asks his \/ her students to quickly and silently \r\ngo over the lesson’s questions and exercises in the book. The listening \r\ntext is played again and students’ are then asked to respond to the \r\nquestions orally. The text is played one more time and students are \r\nasked to identify difficult words and expressions, which the instructor \r\nwrites down on the board and explains. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nThe instructor asks students – one at a time and using no more \r\nthan two sentences – to start relating the ideas of the listening text \r\nin order. The instructor can avoid embarrassing students who cannot \r\nremember the order of ideas in the text by asking the person sitting \r\nnext to them to help, for example. If the text is a story, the instructor \r\ncan distribute the roles of the story’s characters among the students, \r\nwho can then act it out. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nIt is also possible to use the listening text to test the students’ \r\nspelling skills. The instructor can – for example – ask students to write \r\ndown the first three sentences they hear. Students then exchange \r\npapers, the sentences are written in their correct form on the board, \r\nand the students are asked to mark the papers. This exercise is known \r\nas a “learning test.” The instructor may also ask students to write \r\ndown the listening text at home. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nGradually, students can be trained to listen to an Arabic newscast \r\nat home and try to summarize it. This exercise might seem difficult at \r\nthe outset, but it is important to encourage students to keep trying. \r\nGrammatical and conjugational concepts are introduced in a brief \r\nmanner by outlining the rule and then focusing on exercises, which are \r\nnumerous and varied and avoid the tediousness of the traditional way \r\nof teaching Arabic grammar. Difficult concepts are backed with tables \r\nthat help students better understand and grasp them. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nExercises to review past lessons and refresh students’ memory are available in Lesson 13. In addition, the final lesson contains a general revision under the title “Test Your Knowledge,” which is comprised of exercises that review the main rules of syntax, conjugation, and \r\nlinguistics that students must grasp upon completing this level. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nThe book has six appendixes: \r\n\u003col\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003e Appendix 1:\u003c\/b\u003e Arabic-English Dictionary: New terms are arranged \r\nby lesson not by alphabetical order for ease of reference. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 2:\u003c\/b\u003e Arabic-Arabic Dictionary: It provides students \r\nwith their own dictionaries to help them in their studies and develop \r\ntheir vocabulary. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 3: \u003c\/b\u003eContains a list of most verbs used in the lessons \r\nand their sources. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 4: \u003c\/b\u003eContains a list of nouns in their singular and \r\nplural forms.

This exercise might seem difficult at \r\nthe outset, but it is important to encourage students to keep trying. \r\nGrammatical and conjugational concepts are introduced in a brief \r\nmanner by outlining the rule and then focusing on exercises, which are \r\nnumerous and varied and avoid the tediousness of the traditional way \r\nof teaching Arabic grammar. Difficult concepts are backed with tables \r\nthat help students better understand and grasp them. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nExercises to review past lessons and refresh students’ memory are available in Lesson 13. In addition, the final lesson contains a general revision under the title “Test Your Knowledge,” which is comprised of exercises that review the main rules of syntax, conjugation, and \r\nlinguistics that students must grasp upon completing this level. \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n\u003cbr\u003e \r\n \r\nThe book has six appendixes: \r\n\u003col\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003e Appendix 1:\u003c\/b\u003e Arabic-English Dictionary: New terms are arranged \r\nby lesson not by alphabetical order for ease of reference. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 2:\u003c\/b\u003e Arabic-Arabic Dictionary: It provides students \r\nwith their own dictionaries to help them in their studies and develop \r\ntheir vocabulary. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 3: \u003c\/b\u003eContains a list of most verbs used in the lessons \r\nand their sources. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 4: \u003c\/b\u003eContains a list of nouns in their singular and \r\nplural forms.

The words are organized \r\nin the order in which they appear in the text – not in alphabetical \r\norder so as to be easy to follow for students. I thought of \r\ntranslating the glossary into several languages in addition to \r\nEnglish (as I did with the first edition six years ago). I was \r\nsurprised and delighted when my students rushed to the task. \r\nThe glossary was thus translated into major global languages: \r\nEnglish, French, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese, as well as \r\ninto Japanese and Korean.

The words are organized \r\nin the order in which they appear in the text – not in alphabetical \r\norder so as to be easy to follow for students. I thought of \r\ntranslating the glossary into several languages in addition to \r\nEnglish (as I did with the first edition six years ago). I was \r\nsurprised and delighted when my students rushed to the task. \r\nThe glossary was thus translated into major global languages: \r\nEnglish, French, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese, as well as \r\ninto Japanese and Korean. The translation was proofread by \r\nadvanced Arabic language students who were native speakers \r\nof the languages they revised. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 3: \r\n\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \r\n It contains the conjugation of verbs in three \r\ntenses (past, present, and imperative) with separate pronouns. \r\nMost of the verbs were mentioned in the lessons while therest were selected because they are related closely to daily \r\nactivities. The purpose is to build up students’ lexicon, give \r\nthem the confidence to use the language and encourage them \r\nto continue studying it (which is the primary purpose in my \r\nopinion). \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 4: \r\n\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003e \r\n This appendix is dedicated to singular and \r\nplural forms. It contains the singular and plural forms of nouns \r\nmentioned in the lessons. The reason I dedicated an appendix \r\nto plural forms is the absence of a rule that students can use \r\nto form irregular plurals, which are common and heavily-used \r\nin Arabic. Foreign students – even at advanced stages – have \r\ndifficulty forming irregular plural nouns. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 5: \r\n\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cb\u003e \r\n A general int\u003c\/b\u003eroduction to the Islamic and \r\nGregorian calendars as well as brief profiles of Arab countries, \r\nincluding capitals and currencies. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 6: \r\n \r\n\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003ePolitical map of the Arab world including the \r\ncapitals and important cities. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 7: \r\n\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003e Contains the singular and plural forms of the \r\nhuman body parts, which were mentioned previously. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003eAppendix 8: \r\n\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003e List Arabic grammar Vocabularies along with \r\nEnglish translation. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003cb\u003e Appendix 9: \r\n\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003e The English translations of all the questions in \r\nthis book along with the page number they are located in. \r\n\u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003c\/ol\u003e \r\n \r\nThe enclosed Audio CD contains: \r\n\u003col\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e A slow and clear audio recording of the alphabet with adequate translation in \r\nEnglish. \u003c\/li\u003e \r\n \r\n\u003cli\u003e The main lessons are recorded clearly.
