Lessons in Arabic need to be improved, UAE education experts say

DUBAI // Updated curriculum textbooks, daily lessons and better-trained teachers are among the measures education experts say are needed to improve the standard of Arabic taught in schools.

The Government is keen for standards to improve, but recent inspection reports showed that progress on the issue was slow – and in some cases non-existent. 

Mona Methini, head of languages at Scholars International Academy School in Sharjah, said Arabic textbooks were not engaging enough for most pupils. “We should start by updating these books because they are not really relevant to pupils now,” she said.
