This approach is based on the method of programmed instruction, developsself-learning and supportsitby effective use of electronic media; It can be taught in the classrooms, language laboratories, or homes. It alsouses among others, the learning books and electronic applications(CDs), and using audio-oral method, concerning communicative approaches, dependingon the educational unitsin its design. It introducesa newly method for teaching Arabic for beginners using computers in order to learn Arabic language skills from the beginning in a balanced way, including skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. This approach cultivates the seedsof literary tasting through psalms and songs in a gradualineffortless manner and facilitates the link to the subject of the lesson. The approach takes the advantages of modern technical means and appropriate ways to present scientific material in an interesting way and gives the teacher the opportunity to devote him/herself for the efforts of supervision and follow-up.

how to teach books and programs for junior sudents?

Lesson One:(oral entrance)

Each unit beginswith oral entrance and can be extended and lengthened in order to benefit from the skills of the rest of the units, each entrance receives what the student has learned in previous unit and upgrades the student skills and climbing with him/her in new conversations, thus, the student learns new skill in each unit, including rehearsalof the earlier units and this paves theskills to comeinthe current unit. Amongall entries in theunits,it learns student the skills required at each level, the dialogues is varied in all oral entrances among students with the using of pictures, to emphasize the difference between masculine and feminine pronouns in the dialogue, and as the student learning a new dialogue it must be added to the old dialogue. The teacher must realize that repetition is very important in language teaching as a foreign language, however, teacher must prevent the boredom that creeps into the hearts of students through the using of variousteaching methodsand its ways whenever it is possible.And being in mind,as the teacher lengthening the dialogue with thestudent as the student has gained confidence in and enabled him/her to the mastery of language mechanismto students and mind. Using the functional vocabularyand its diversification enabled students to achieve the mechanism of dialogue and discussion from the early days, and encouragescommunication betweenthe teacher and his/her students, as well as among students themselves.

Inthe following we show how to teach the functional vocabulary, and how to employ it orally and in writing.

LessonTwo: (functional vocabulary and uses it orally)

The wordsdepicted in the functional vocabulary makes it easier for the teacher to introduce it orally to the students, make them usedtohearfunctional vocabulary in different situations with changeable mechanisms, by the help of oral question about it using pronouns like: this, that, does, and so. Or according to the instructions with each group of words, and the teacher does not need to translate the vocabulary because the image reflects the intended meaning.

LessonThree:(employment the vocabularyin writing)

Afterthe transition from the oral phase in the entrance at the introduction and in the oral vocabulary of functional at lesson one, the instructor moves to employ whatever the student haslearned to utilize it skillfully with a focus on the skill of writing by ordering students first to answer questions in the book. After the answer, the students practice to answer all the exercise orally, the teacher reads the question and ordered the student to answer orally, being in mind,the alteration of students, and thenthe teacher asks everytwo students to stimulate the dialogue, one student asks and the other answers, and teacher must say in the process: exchange the dialogue with your partner. And when the teacher sees that the students have finished, he/she should make sure to switch between who asksandwho answers. The teacher has to choose student from the front of the class and those from the back, then askthem to exchange the questions and answers in order to hear all of the students well, and in the same way he/she can complete the rest of the exercises.

Theabundance ofconcentration, listening and the repetition of the single words help students on memorization in indirectly and creates anintimacyto theArab sounds at the same time. This is what we will need when learning reading and writing later. A student who has not heard a word from before do not feel comfortable when reads it, but may not be able to read as well as to write it or use it. Hence we seethe necessity of introducing theoralentrance first, and thenfollowing the listening skill and familiarity toward the vocabulary through artificial means which lead to achieve the desired objectives in future; then comes grammatical employment of the words under study, so student would consist with single words when placed within the sentence. The case is different when the student listens to single word from hearing same word within a sentence, the mechanism of grammatical function must be gradual, according to student learning level of the oral mechanisms, or say, dialogic as it was previously in the oral entrance, and themechanism will beas follows.

Lesson Four: (functional Grammar)

The termfunctional grammar is a set of rules that lead to the basic function of grammar; functional grammar adjusts the written words and the system of authorship sentences in order to save the tongue of error in pronunciation, itkeepsawaythe penfor the errorinwriting. The beginner student in Arabic language concerned with Arabic grammar for its role in the integrity of his/her language, the integrity of the tongue and to eliminate the melody and error, and making the mechanism of language which we are pay a great interest in this book to it.

In the beginning, the non-Arabic student needs from Arabic grammar whatever can help him/her to move between the masculinityand feminine pronouns, when the student can add some of consciences ofproperty, to the extent that does not make the student feel the need to know the grammatical terms, and without the incursion in the extensive explanation, but with automatic method in which the student does not need to ask about reason.To create agrammatical mechanism by frequency and repetition, most of the grammatical exercises isfunctional and need the student toanswer first, after the teacher having reviewed it; he/she has to conduct it orally, and as happened in the function of vocabulary.


The studentwho learns a foreign language may find difficulty to capture the audio and understanding, it seems tohim/her that thetalkisa reasonablespeed, but the training models trained student to listen and familiarize him/herself by distinguishing words in sentences with its normal pronunciation, and move the language movement from the conscious sense to unconscious sense, while linking the meaning of the word with the same sound without the need for translation.

Themechanism of listening skill at the junior trainees depends on the correct pronunciation of the letters, student distinguishes among the letters when he/she listens to them with the symmetric words, this will be find in the pronunciation exercises of Arabic sounds that may represent the difficulty for non-Arab, trainingof new wordsby listening, differentiate between it and the other listening and spoken, and training to pick up the words and recognizing it within sentences or dialogues. This mechanism does not grow up in the studentthrough the training inother skills only, but the teacher can nurturethis skillina special lesson, call it listening lesson, the first objective is to train the ear to the correct listening with understanding of what student listens, and then to be training through the images in the first level without resorting to translation.

LessonSix:(speaking skill)

This approachteaches speaking skill fromthe first daythe student begins to study Arabic, this will be undertaken through the entrance of the oral speech which the student learns speaking skill by means direct oral interviews and employment that accept the extension and prolongation, such that single word should be employed to serve the skill of speaking in sentences and dialogues in order to implant in the mind of the student. A functional grammarisa mean of mechanism that extends the dialogue through the mechanisms of grammar. In fact, the junior student studies every word and sentence should be motivated to speak more, and the teacher can almost see the progress of student during his/her study of this book, the student cannot stop him/herself from speaking only when he/she is used the pen in the answer. Even at the moment of writing, the student tongue does not stopped to speak during the writing, if possible?Thus,all the skillsservicethe speaking skill.

Speaking skill helps students fluency in speech and the included exercises in the skill of speaking is not a repeat of what is in the functional vocabulary and function grammar only, but it is exercises to start to speak, and can be donein the same way we employ the vocabularyand the functional grammar. With a focus onstarting to speak to each other among themselves, the teacher tries to cultivate the love of speaking Arabic in the hearts of the students, the most important benefits of patterns exercises is making the student feels of easiness of Arabic language and its mechanism, and this is what we would like, and to make the student feelin the beginning.

LessonSeven:(Speaking Skills)

It has been noted that thelanguageskills isoverlapping, so whenthe student learns the pronunciation, he/she learns how to read also,when the student learns a dialogue he/she read this dialogue easily, which he/she memorize before reading, theWordthat is repeated by the student often, he/she feels easy to read, and the difficulty of reading suchwordcomes from the lack of familiarity with, or ignorance of its meaning. From the first day of the course, the teacher should make the student familiar with listening to a fair amount of new words, this, in return, will facilitate reading and writing skills, because the student who is accustomed to listen the word and see it in the past will feel easy to read, and this will increasethe analysis of the word based on its origins. Thenthe teacher has to teach the studentArabic Alphabet, this method of teaching reading is called holisticapproach, and in this method, teacher learns the student the words and sentences completely before analysis them to its origins 

We have seenthat the holisticapproach is the most successful in teaching Arabic to non-Arab, because the student with this method does not waste time in learning the letters which have no meaning, but grasp the words which have meaning, then, after that, the teacher tells the student that the word was originally composed of letters and that will be useful for him/her.Then the student gradually from reading single word and learning its meaning through his/her reading, student has to read the complete sentences in order to increase his/her linguistic wealth, through exercises ofidentifying the words and distinguishing them, the word will be integrated with all its letters, the eye of student is able to deduct the difference between and among letters, thelast trainingexercise in the skill ofreading is a meaningful commend contains a summary of what was studied in the unit of the goals and ideas in order to memorize and repeat it by the student, so he/she can exceed his/her skill, and make the student feel the beauty of language and the necessity to learn it.

LessonEight:(Writing Skill)

Whatwe said about the reading skill that is overlaps with other skills is true with the skill of writing also, the mechanism for writing must be brought up in the student's mind from the first day, the student feels psychologically comfortable when he/she writes such word aslearned it, and the student feels safe from losing the word, as writing saves the knowledge from loss. As the training to write is starting gradually at the level of pre-writing, but through existing and useful forms the writing skill makes the mechanism of writing and employs it usefully, and not just as an order the student to draw lines and curves without having a benefit from it. After the growing of writing skill, the student will feel that the mechanism of writing has matured in giving answers to writing exercises in students exercises of writing skills, in the beginning. The exercises are supposed to be passed on the words and phrases that students see in a light fond, this will make student familiar with what to be written. We know that when the student presses the pen and writes the word, the pen engraved the drawing of the word in his/her mind, for that, word does not leave the mind of the student, and writing reinforces information and establishes it in the mind.

After long students tour in the skills ofthe unit, the focus and shorten of the structures and patterns which the student learnt, the role of the shortcut will be well known in the arranging of ideas in the mind of that student. It is well known the role of the shortcut in the arranging of ideas in the mind of the student, the summary of the patterns and structures is suggest to the student that the language which is not infinite can be summarized its structures and patterns,the patterns are arranged in a way to accept thelearning, reviewing, andaccept thereproductionand the increasingalso,and whenthe student sees his/her Linguistic outcomes is not limited he/she will feel confident in him/herself. The summarized of functionalvocabulary is separating from names and characters from the verbs in order to cultivate in students mind -since the beginning and without making him/her feel that the Arabic language is divided into names,characters, and verbs, andthis is importantin the future. The student can write the meaning in his/her own language in his/her own dictionary, writing must be in the manner that we have proposed in the summary of the vocabulary, but we do not recommend student to write such personal translation in the book through the process of learning the skills.

Electronic Test

This program measures theachievementofthe student, it ischaracterized by its immediate response to students answer, gives the studentthe degree whichhe/she obtaineddirectly. The goal of this test is also an educational instruction, so the student who did not understand very well what he/she has learned, he/she can resume his/her learning, and he/she can repeat the testuntil he/she is sure of his/her proficiency of linguistic skills learned throughout the program.

Thequestions is varied in order to include all of the proposed program, the questions of listening and reading are dominating, the advantage of the electronic test is to guide the student to his/her real level, and this program pushes the student to learn over and over again until he/she is sure of his/her proficiency for the content of the program. The programhas an immediateresponseto the student, and does not need to wait until the teacher corrects the exam and inform the student about the result. When the studentwhen is doing this test, he/she does not need to worry or be disturbed, he/she will know his/her outcome without fear of the others blame, there is no worryof thesuccess orfailure, and as a result of the test which the student will be greeted with sporty spirit and do notput him/her in theawkward position.


TheArabic literature is an expression of the emotion or the magic of nature, in the manner that raised a jolt of the beauty of photography,magnificence of the expression, and the splendor fantasy in the spirit of the reader or listener, andliteraturehas a pleasure and joy in the self and able to enter the delight to the self. When the teacher teaches the Arabic language for non-Arabic speakers beginners, he/she has to cultivate in the students spirit the beautiful literary language in gradually manner, as for the beginner student, the cultivation of the beauty of literary language can only be achieved when the student croons and sings the beautiful, soft, and easy hymns in the beginning.

The student seesthe simplicity of the poetic language with the manner which is commensurate with his/her level and what he/she learns, entersjoy his/her heart, regale his/her ear, stems his/her tongue to echoing and singing, refineshis/her morals,expands his/her imagination circle, feels pleasurewhen he sees him/herself understanding and connoisseur of the meanings of these Hymns, and songs are composed and singing by artistry method that fit the universal taste and endure Arabic culture to non-Arabic speakers.

Methods of Memorization

Teaching ofArabic Hhymnsfor the Beginners of Non-Arabic Speakers:

  1. Firstly, the teacherreads the hymns ordinary, he/she in this ordinary reading can repeatedthe hymn once or twice to prepare students to the proper pronunciation and the art of presentation, then discusses the students understanding of the hymn, and gave them a general idea about ​​the general meaning of it.
  2. Secondly, the teacherreads the anthem poetry reading to students,ask them torepeatingbehind him,and thenask them toread, and see if they werea fluent in reading.
  3.
