Learners’ perception of Arabic grammar and its teaching approaches – Rasha Soliman – firstname.lastname@example.org
This work-in-progress scholarship project investigates learners’ perception of the importance of grammar as a component of a language programme and how the learners perceive the different grammar teaching methods, approaches to feedback and the grammar learning activities. It is based on a survey results with 263 participants who are/were learners of Arabic at university level. The initial findings of the research show that learners perceive grammar to be an essential component of their learning but they prefer it to be more integrated with other skills rather than being introduced through a more traditional Grammar-Translation method. The results also show that grammar learning activities that support productive skills are preferred over the one with receptive skills focus. The results of the project are applicable to the teaching of any second languages. This work will be published in a forthcoming handbook on Arabic Grammar Teaching. For a brief overview of the project, please see the short presentation as part of the research showcase event by Arabic, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies (AIMES) at 22:40 of the video.
