dc.description.abstract The Arabic language and dialect is becoming unpopular nowadays among the young generations, if not marginalized. One of the major reasons behind this issue lies within the experience young students have while learning Arabic at schools. This study examined the perceptions of students and adults towards the Arabic language, Arabic teacher, and Arabic session. A quantitative cross-sectional study was conducted in a private school in Beirut. Questionnaires were distributed to 69 grade 4 students followed by semi-structured interviews conducted with parents and educators. Results show a statistically significant association between the Arabic class perception and the description/ perception of the Arabic teacher. Assessments as learning tools were found to be significantly associated with mother tongue. The associations between each of videos and songs, as learning tools, with both Arabic classroom perception and the perceived importance of the Arabic language were significant. The qualitative data results of the study revealed an association between the perception of the Arabic teacher and the perception of the Arabic classroom, as well as between the perception of the Arabic teacher, classroom, and performance. The image of the Arabic teacher was frequently associated with negative connotations, and the current trend of instruction of Arabic was found to be obsolete and requires change. Recommendations to use up to date teaching/ learning methods and approaches are presented at the end of the study. Keywords: Perception en_US
