Abstract

Students' attitude towards language learning has been identified to influence the learning process. This study investigated students' attitude towards the learning of oral Arabic in Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) which includes two aspects, attitude towards the teaching of the language and attitude towards the language itself. The objective of the study is to explore students' attitude from the cognitive, affective and conative perspectives. This is a qualitative study engaging 21 series of interviews, comprising 13 series of interviews with students and 8 with subject lecturers. The selection of students took into consideration their prior experience in learning Arabic and the faculty clusters they belonged to. The acquired interview data were transcribed verbatim and analysed using NVIVO7 software in order to establish the relevant themes. The study found that cognitively, all students affirmed to the importance of the oral Arabic even though they prioritized other subjects. Students' perception towards the difficulty of learning oral Arabic depends on their prior knowledge and experience. Affectively, all students expressed their positive attitude towards learning oral Arabic, except for some who had no foundation of the language expressed their uneasiness, learning in classess where students are of mixed abilities. Conatively, the students had shown their resilience to the learning and would like to continue doing so in the future. This study recommends that the teaching approach used should be appropriate to the students' prior knowledge and experience. Appropriate approach is therefore vital in moulding students' behaviour which consequently effects their performance in learning oral Arabic.
