Based on research with teachers, the Notes identify words which often cause Arabic speakers problems (e.g. know, no, now and rice, rise, and help with other problematic areas of language (e.g. using by or with, capital letters).
Students can look up a word in Arabic, using the index, and then look up the English word in the dictionary for the explanation, pronunciation, example sentences, and other useful information on usage.
16 colour pages focus on topic vocabulary with Arabic translations.
Study pages provide reference material and activities - for example, Common mistakes, Letters, Words that go together, The Arab World. These pages include some explanations in Arabic.
The CD-ROM allows students to look up words in both Arabic and English, hear headwords pronounced, view illustrations, and practise their vocabulary with the games, exercises, and online tests.
