|Email item||Print item||
After publishing the Maltese/English book series entitled Maltese for Foreigners, Gozitan author Charles Daniel Saliba, recently completed two new books, Medical Words & Phrases in Maltese and Speaking Medical Maltese 1, to supplement this series.
Medical Words & Phrases in Maltese is a bilingual vocabulary book in Maltese and English that teaches Maltese medical vocabulary and expressions in an easy-to-follow format. Designed in full colour, it includes exercises and activities to teach vocabulary and phrases in a cyclical manner while sharpening the learners’ speaking, reading, writing and listening skills.
Speaking Medical Maltese 1 contains 24 realistic dialogues, with parallel translations, to help learners practise spoken medical Maltese. After each dialogue there is a box with important phrases and medical expressions and their translations.
Saliba has also updated the accompanying CD, with the audio files linked to the books’ content, so learners can listen to native Maltese speakers reading the text and performing the dialogues.
He added that, both books are ideal for medical and healthcare professionals and students who need to use Maltese in their work or study to communicate with patients and colleagues. It is also useful for foreigners living in Malta to learn basic medical terminology.
This year, Saliba, was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by the University of Sheffield (UK). He specialised in teaching Maltese as a foreign language and was sponsored by the MGSS Scholarship.
