Arabic Teaching at Australian Islamic Schools: A CALL Framework

  1. 1. https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-73612-9_14 Bookchapter,downloadfromspringer. Islamic Schooling in the West pp 285-314| Cite as Arabic Teaching at Australian Islamic Schools: A CALL Framework Arabic plays a vital role in the lives of Muslims. However, the Arabic teaching profession is challenged by a diminishing supply of professionals, use of ineffective methodologies and the absence of school textbooks designed for learners of Arabic as a foreign language as well as the fact that many textbooks are not guided by the field of second language acquisition. In fact, it has been said that Arabic teaching has reached crisis level, with the distaste for Arabic lessons arguably unsolvable in the near future and evident among Australian students. However, while most solutions require huge amounts of funding and time, this chapter suggests that the strategic use of computer- assisted language learning can help in finding a way forward.
