Abstract

The Arabic course at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Malaysia is an elective offered to first degree students. The objective of this study was to investigate students' self-efficacy in learning oral Arabic at UiTM. It was a mixed method of quantitative and qualitative study using a questionnaire adapted from The Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) and interviews. Quantitative data were analysed using SPSS 17, involving 445 samples which were chosen by using the stratified random sampling technique. Qualitative data were analysed using NVIVO7 engaging 13 interviews with students. The study found that, overall; the level of self-efficacy among the students was high. Further investigation found that self-efficacy towards success in the oral Arabic course in UiTM was high while self-efficacy towards mastering oral Arabic in general was moderate. This study suggests that the concept of self-efficacy should be implemented and nurtured among students and it should be in line with their different abilities in oral Arabic. On the other hand, authentic learning materials should also be used in learning in order to become an ultimate benchmark in learning oral Arabic.
