Saliba has also produced a CD (updated 2017) containing the audio files linked to the books so learners can listen to native Maltese speakers reading the text and acting out the dialogues. In addition, Saliba has also devised a syllabus for each level based on the CEFR, which can be downloaded for free from his website under the heading Maltese for Foreigners.
The bilingual series, featuring the latest developments in Maltese orthography, is aimed at beginners who want to learn Maltese and advance to the intermediate level. The series is suitable for use by individuals, by groups or in a school setting.
Saliba obtained his PhD from the University of Sheffield (UK), where he specialised in teaching Maltese as a foreign language and was sponsored by the Malta Government Scholarship Scheme Grant. For more information about each book, please visit www.charlesdanielsaliba.com
