"Book Six concentrates on teaching Form Two, Three and Four Verbs in a comprehensive manner, covering regular and irregular verbs in various moods and tenses. It introduces the subjunctive and jussive moods and the particles that govern them. The key theme running through the book is the weather and seasons and the student will learn to talk about the temperature and climate in various parts of the world at different times of the year. As usual, passages of dialogue and extensive exercises enable the student to put into practice the knowledge he/she has acquired. "
Book Six completes the teaching of form one triliteral verbs by introducing the student to the subjunctive and jussive verb moods, together with the particles associated with them.
It introduces the student to the concept of the derived forms of trilateral verbs, focusing in particular on forms two, three and four. These are taught in the past and present tenses, the imperative, the subjunctive and jussive moods, as well as touching on the treatment of irregular verbs (i.e. those that have doubled root letters, or one or more weak root letter).
To assist the student in getting to grips with some of the more challenging verb patterns, a number of verb templates are included at the end of the book for ease of reference.
One of the key topics covered in detail in this book is the weather and the seasons, including talking about temperature and weather conditions, weather bulletins and related texts.
For example, this Saudi weather bulletin is followed by a set of eight comprehension questions to test the student’s understanding of the passage.
