Abstract

The learning of Arabic at the Faculty of Education is implemented in the Bachelor of Islamic Education Pogramme in collaboration with the Department of Arabic Studies and Islamic Civilization, Faculty of Islamic Studies. Arabic is the minor course taught as a subject at schools. The findings of an informal observation of the students' competency in Arabic found indicate that the students are poor particularly in the spoken and written communication skills. Thus, there is a need to improve students' proficiency in Arabic language to ensure that they become competent teachers of the language. In view of this, it is believed that more exposure and support need to be provided for students to acquire Arabic apart from the courses offered. This paper presents an action research study that attempted to increase students' Arabic skills through a development of a learning module on Arabic Language Skills Outside of the Classroom.
