To Use or Not To Use Arabic in English Language Teaching

Post by BILLAL on Thu Jan 05, 2012 11:43 pm

Hi everyone. I would like to know what do you think of the use of Arabic while teaching English. As far as I'm concerned , the use of Arabic in my classes adheres to the pedagogical and lingusitic insights set forward by specialists in the field. It can be summarized as follows: the presence of L1 (Arabic) is out of question; as a teacher , i don't use it to communicate but i require my students to show me that they have understood a notion or vocabulary (FEEDBACK). It's use in this case is equal to that of French ; since learners differ in aptitude, learning styles and motivation towards learning. Also, inorder not to deprive my students of the "linguistic bath" or exposure to English, all communications in class and outside class tend to be fully in English. Learners may fail to produce accurate requests and sentences so they turn to dictionary to cater for their needs but vainly because vocabulary is the not the underlying level of Language but the syntactic structures that should be ACQUIRED or learned. Next to uselessness is a teacher who turns quickly to Arabic when s/he fails to help his/her learners get an adequate input without adequate brainstorming .

It would be far beyond nice to discuss this tricky topic with you!

As far as I am concerned, I think that we can resort to Arabic language to clarify certain teaching or learning ambiguities. It is very helpful to have feedbacks as you previously pointed it out. But I would rather prefer that teachers don't use Arabic and let the flow go horizontally (students - students). They shouldn't count too much on this alternative in acquiring the language. Instead they need to develop appropriate skills and strategies to facilitate their learning without having to resort to their mother tongue language
