Level Three in the Al-Aafaq series builds on the lessons learned in the previous levels. Students are taught to form sentences using appropriate vocabulary. There is continuing practice with word formation. The past and present tenses are focused on and the student is taught to distinguish between different grammatical forms. Now greater emphasis is placed on sentence formation and conversational Arabic where alphabetical knowledge is reinforced and the “tanween” is introduced. Conversational skills are further developed using a broader range of vocabulary. Writing skills are focused upon. Islamic poetry, haddith and Surahs are studied.
A workbook accompanies the textbook in order to enhance comprehension and writing skills. This is a substantial workbook as students need plenty of practice at this stage of language study. The tenses which are introduced in the textbook are covered, the masculine and feminine nouns and other grammatical concepts. Workbooks are better quality papers.
