My son needed this book for our local weekend Islamic school. This book teaches how to recognize letters in the beginning, middle, and end forms. Some of the vocabulary words are verbs in the he/she form. However the book does no teach grammar. Someone who does not speak Arabic, would not understand the difference.
In class, my son did not learn anything. However, when I went over the lessons with him, he learned new words. The instructions are in Arabic so it may be difficult to help your student if you do not read Arabic. The one complaint I have is that some words do not have the vowels written at the end. For example it will say bayt instead of baytu.
