This workbook is an attempt to provide students of Gurbāṇī with an opportunity to apply their understanding of the language, grammar and theological principles of the Gurū Granth Sāhib via a series of quizzes and exercises.
It arose from the need of readers of the textbook Gurū Granth Sāhib – Its language and Grammar to practice specific Gurbāṇī skills acquired through it, as well as to provide as opportunity to further consolidate their knowledge of the vocabulary, principles and ideas contained in Gurbāṇī at large.
The workbook has thirty-six lessons, directly corresponding to the textbook. Each lesson is divided into two parts, a quiz and an exercise. The former enables students to test their understanding of the content from the respective lessons in the textbook, whilst the latter offers additional opportunity to develop a general grasp of Gurbāṇī, including its theological principles, vocabulary, pronunciation and transcription skills.
