Foreign Language Planning in Saudi Arabia: Beyond English
Payne, Mark; Almansour, Maram
Current Issues in Language Planning, v15 n3 p327-342 2014
This paper presents findings from an exploratory study of foreign language planning in Saudi Arabia. In terms of official policy, the sole foreign language taught in Saudi public schools is English. Therefore, researching foreign languages there is often limited to researching the area of English as a Foreign Language. However, evidence shows that Saudi students find other ways, outside of formal school settings, to learn foreign languages of their choice. In this paper, we expand the debate on language planning by exploring foreign language planning beyond English in Saudi Arabia.
