One of the most effective teaching methods is the Communicative Approach. Tasked-based learning (TBL) requires students to engage in interaction in order to fulfill a task and involves differentiating, the ability to sequence, and problem-posing activities involving learners and teachers in some joint selection.
Tasks are a feature of everyday life. We all have things we need or want to do. We have specific purposes and goals in mind, and we use specific competencies to complete the tasks. In daily life, a task might be shifting a wardrobe from one room to another or planning the budget for the next financial year.
In the classroom, communication is always part of the process, whether the task involves creativity, particular skills to repair or assemble something, problem solving, planning, or completing a transaction. Students become actively involved in communication and focus on achieving a particular goal. They must comprehend, negotiate, express ideas, and get their message across in order to reach that goal.
Bringing tasks into the classroom puts the focus of language learning on the meaning and the goal, rather than on the form of the communication. "Real world" scenarios have been selected to make the course relevant to the students.
These goals are transferred into activities that focus on the reading, writing, oral communication, and/or listening skills relevant to real life needs. It also covers the goals of cross-cultural awareness, as well as leadership, organizational, and interpersonal communication skills.
Modern Standard Arabic has developed out of Classical Arabic, the language of the Quran. During the era of the caliphate,Classical Arabic was the language used for all religious, cultural, administrative and scholarly purposes.
Modern Standard Arabic is the official Arabic language. It can be written and spoken, and there is no difference between the written and the spoken form.
In its written form, Modern Standard Arabic is the language of literature and the media. Books, newspapers, magazines, official documents, private and business correspondence, street signs and shop signs - all are written in Modern Standard Arabic.
Arabic is a name applied to the descendants of the Classical Arabic language of the 6th century AD. This includes both the literary language and varieties of Arabic spoken in a wide arc of territory stretching across the Middle East and North Africa. Some of the spoken varieties are mutually unintelligible, both written and orally, and the varieties as a whole constitute a sociolinguistic language. This means that on purely linguistic grounds they would likely be considered to constitute more than one language, but are commonly grouped together as a single language for political and/or ethnic reasons (see below). If considered multiple languages, it is unclear how many languages there would be, as the spoken varieties form a dialect chain with no clear boundaries. If Arabic is considered a single language, it perhaps is spoken by as many as 280 million first language speakers, making it one of the half dozen most populous languages in the world. If considered separate languages, the most-spoken variety would most likely be Egyptian Arabic, with 54 million native speakers still greater than any other Semitic language.
Arabic (Modern Standard Arabic) is spoken in: Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Chad, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Palestine
Arabic (Modern Standard Arabic) has no known alternate names.
