The Arabic Sentence book came about from teaching secondary school students and seeing how these students became more familiar to the language with such ease. These students were of mixed abilities, yet they all managed to learn the foundations of Arabic grammar. When the students were struggling on a specific part of Arabic, it gave me the ability to produce more creative exercises in order for them to fully understand. All of this hard work and culmination of years have been brought together in this one book.
As the author of the book, I have had my own personal battle with grasping the Arabic language and I only appreciated the language once I began teaching it to young minded students. I found it difficult to find a book that explained the Arabic language in a way that I could understand. I memorised the rules but found it hard to practically implement them, especially if you do not live in an Arabic speaking country.
When teaching this language to youngsters, I did not want to teach them rules. I created methods and examples from the English language and identified resembling features that can be used in both languages. Students enjoyed the lessons and were eager to finish the worksheets. Teaching Arabic for more than five years allowed me to think of different ways of approaching the language and these methods are compiled with in this book.
This book is unique as it contains different methods of learning and it has been tried and tested on young individuals. If it can work on them it can work on all!
