Computer Assisted Language Learning for Learning Arabic as a Second Language in Malaysia: Teacher Perceptions

Mohammed A. Gharawi and Azman Bidin
Abstract—A study was conducted on the perceptions of 35 Malaysian school teachers on their use of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) for teaching vocabulary to learners of Arabic as a Second or Foreign Language (ASL/AFL). Most teachers expressed their favour for using CALL, and especially recognized its potential in helping and encouraging such learners, but also pointed out its time consuming nature. CALL can assist in the teaching and learning of Arabic vocabulary, as it has also been useful in education in general. For instance, it is noted that CALL can present vocabulary in multiple modes simultaneously; it supports interaction, and enables personalized learning. Further research is ongoing on its effectiveness, but CALL could play an important role to assist learners who face difficulties in acquiring Arabic vocabulary, and understanding it in context.

Index Terms—Arabic language, computer assisted language learning, foreign language learning.
