Attitudes and Cultural Backgrounds and Their Relationship to English in a Multicultural Social Context: The Case of Male and Female Arab Immigrants in Canada.
Abu-Rabia, Salim
Educational Psychology: An International Journal of Experimental Educational Psychology, v15 n3 p323-36 Sep 1995
Reading comprehension experiments suggest that cultural content means little to Arab students reading in a second language (English). The students did just as well or better reading stories with no Arabic content. The study also found significant differences in the learning strategies of male and female Arab students. (MJP)
