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.

About The Author

Dr Imran Hamza Alawiye

Dr Imran Hamza Alawiye was born in the city of Ogbomosho in Western Nigeria where I completed my primary and secondary education but have lived abroad for more than forty years. Having brought up two children of his own and watched them flourish under the UK educational system, he has come to recognise just how fortunate they were in having access to modern classrooms, up-to-date textbooks, well-equipped laboratories, state-of-the-art whiteboards, computer suites, libraries, sports facilities and more during their schooling.

The story in his home city could not be in greater contrast, as he saw on a previous visit. The students have a real thirst for learning and the staff are incredibly dedicated to delivering a solid education, but they are terribly hampered by a lack of adequate buildings, classroom furniture, textbooks, science equipment and other basic resources to make their efforts effective.

Dr Imran Hamza Alawiye took it upon himself  that when he returned to Britain he should actively campaign on their behalf to lend them a helping hand. For he believes that education is the passport for them to access a first world education while remaining in Nigeria. He immediately contacted some UK schools and was impressed with the response he received. To date, I have personally gathered and shipped over 65,000 donated textbooks, old still-usable science equipment that schools were replacing, as well as books to establish a library. But it became clear to him that his personal efforts were but a drop in the ocean of need.

For this reason, he established the charity Helping Hands for Education (HHE). His wife and other trustees came together to support his humble efforts, initially with the idea of targeting the schools in Ogbomosho, though hopefully expanding further afield in the long term.
