After the success of Qawsallinu, Maltese language teacher Charles Daniel Saliba has launched Suċċessinu 1. This book builds on its predecessor’s foundation by preparing students for the first paper of the SEC (O-level) exam. Information is presented in a clear, logical and concise way. It includes: a detailed explanation of the examination paper; a time-management plan for sitting the exam; advice on writing and examples of essays, letters (formal, informal, and to a newspaper), emails and reports; guidance on the SEC oral exam with notes on the Maltese linguistic culture and other current themes; five model papers of the oral exam and five of Paper 1 of the written exam. All the answers are given in a separate section, making the book ideal for self-learning. Suċċessinu 1 conforms to the latest developments in Maltese orthography and is intended for those sitting the 2014 SEC examination.

Saliba has also launched Suċċessinu 2 to complement the official textbook for the 2014 SEC (O-level) Maltese exam syllabus. The new book covers all the texts listed in the syllabus for Paper 2 and helps students gain a true appreciation of Maltese literature while arming them to pass the exam with flying colours! Written for all students starting their fourth year in September and conforming to the latest developments in Maltese orthography, Suċċessinu 2 includes:
Notes on all the poems and prose listed in the syllabus and published in the literature anthology Bejn Ħaltejn;
- Plenty of exercises based on the anthology;
- Advice on good essay writing skills;
- Model answers in the form of essays;
- A detailed list of the figures of literary discourse with full explanations and creative exercises;
- Three model papers of the written exam.
All the answers are given in a separate section, making the book ideal for self-learning.
Suċċessinu 2 complements Suċċessinu 1, a book that prepares students for Paper 1. Together, the two books are perfect for anyone who has to teach, learn or administer the new O-level syllabus and get ready for the 2014 exam. Both books are available in bookshops now.
