Advanced Business Arabic: Application and Implications.
Rammuny, Raji M.
The first part of a discussion of curriculum for advanced business Arabic outlines the need for development of such a course, arguing that traditional courses do not meet the vocational needs of the growing audience for Arabic instruction. The second part describes a methodology for a newly designed course that uses problem-solving and guided learning strategies as principal elements and integrates the teaching of communicative, cultural, and linguistic competence. The third part discusses and analyzes a sample unit, certain teaching techniques, and evaluation procedures. The discussion concludes with recommendations and a look at the methodology's advantages for advanced Arabic instruction. (MSE)
