Title: The Teaching of Arabic as a Foreign Language
Subtitle: Issues and Directions
Edited By: Mahmoud Al-Batal

In this volume, leading teachers of Arabic, many of whom have written
influential textbooks for advanced learners, explore the realities and
challenges of teaching Arabic as a foreign language. Topics covered include
the state of the Arabic teaching profession; the institutional challenges
in U.S. and study-abroad programs; the teaching of various skills such as
writing, reading, speaking, and listening; the varieties of Arabic and
their relevance in the classroom; the uses of technology in the classroom,
and testing. Published in 1995, the issues raised in this volume remain
mostly relevant today.

Distributed for the American Association of Teachers of Arabic.
