This volume explores the realities and challenges of teaching Arabic as a foreign language. Distinguished contributors examine the state of the Arabic teaching profession, the institutional challenges in both US and study-abroad programs, the teaching of various skills, 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 here remain mostly relevant today. Distributed for the American Association of Teachers of Arabic.
