Overview

The Arabic Classroom is a multicontributor work for trainee and in-service teachers of Arabic as a foreign language. Collected here is recent scholarly work, and also critical writing from Arabic instructors, Arabists and language experts, to examine the status of the teaching and learning of Arabic in the modern classroom. The book stresses the inseparability of the parameters of contexts, texts and learners in the effective Arabic classroom and investigates their role in enhancing the experience of teaching and learning Arabic. The book also provides a regional perspective through global case studies and encourages Arabic experts to search for better models of instruction and best practices beyond the American experience.

The Arabic Classroom's well researched chapters can help Arabic teachers reflect on how they teach currently and think about how Arabic teaching pedagogy can move forward in the future. - Jonathan Featherstone, Senior Teaching Fellow of Arabic, University of Edinburgh, UK


The Arabic Classroom should be essential reading for Arabic teachers, as it helps to raise the profession of Arabic teaching to a higher level. The Arabic Classroom's well researched chapters can help Arabic teachers reflect on how they teach currently and think about how Arabic teaching pedagogy can move forward in the future. - Jonathan Featherstone, Senior Teaching Fellow of Arabic, University of Edinburgh, UK The Arabic Classroom is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature in the field of Arabic instruction. The wealth of innovative pedagogical techniques, program descriptions, case studies, and reflections by seasoned language professionals can only enrich the Arabic classroom experience and make it more rewarding and enjoyable for both teacher and learner. With its emphasis on the centrality of the role of Fusha, the book offers a reassurance to those concerned about its marginalization in Arabic-as-a-foreign-language programs. - Munther Younes, Reis Senior Lecturer in Arabic Language and Linguistics and Director of the Arabic Program, Cornell University, USA
