Modern Standard Arabic vs. Non-Standard Arabic: Where Do Arab Students of EFL Transfer From?
Mahmoud, Abdulmoneim
Language, Culture and Curriculum, v13 n2 p126-36 2000
Focuses on the learning of English as a foreign language (EFL) by Arabic-speaking secondary school students. To see which variety students transferred from, they were asked to translate into English two versions of a short Arabic text: one Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), and the other non-standard Arabic (NSA). Results indicate the importance of taking both MSA and NSA into account when making use of Arabic in teaching EFL. (Author/VWL)
