Davidson, Peter; Coombe, Christine – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2019
Language assessment literacy (LAL) has become a critical topic in English language teaching since the late 1990s. Unfortunately, this is mainly due to the fact that so many English language teachers are not assessment literate. In other words, many English language teachers lack the knowledge and skills to write good language tests, evaluate the…

Alabar, Rahaf – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2019
The concept of the "native speaker" (NS) remains a constant interest in the field of language pedagogy due to the need the field has for models, goals and norms (Davies, 2003, p. 1). On the other hand, some other researchers such as Byram (1997) in his model of intercultural competence (ICC) and Cook (2012) in his model of…

Our paper aims at analysing the linguistic "features" produced by Arabic learners of Italian as a foreign language. There are published studies of common errors for Arab students of Italian (Della Puppa, 2006; Giacalone Ramat et al., 2001). However, this study introduces the standardized language assessment, namely the CILS test of…

Rezoug, Fares; Vincent, Benet – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2018
Although lexical bundles (LBs) have attracted considerable attention in applied linguistics, their variation by discipline is an under-researched area, particularly with regard to Master's dissertations. This paper explores the frequency, structure, and function of four-word bundles used in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Master's…

Sorour, Nourhan – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2018
Proficiency in second language (L2) has traditionally been linked to grammatical competence. However, as opposed to common misconceptions about language learning, to be proficient in a second language does not only entail the ability to produce grammatically correct sentences, but it also entails the ability to use this language appropriately. The…
