The Arabic Classroom is a multi-contributor work for trainee and in-service teachers of Arabic as a foreign language.
Collected here together is recent scholarly work, and also critical writing from Arabic instructors and language experts to examine the status of the Arabic teaching and learning in the modern classroom. The book stresses the inseparability of context and content in the effective Arabic classroom, and investigates the parameters of the experience of teaching and learning Arabic.
The book provides a regional perspective through global case studies and explores the status of Arabic teaching and learning in the modern classroom through three parameters; contexts, texts and learners.
