Printed Thesis Information:


This study is concerned with the issue of using the
microcomputer in teaching Arabic Grammar (verbal
sentences) in the intermediate schools of the State of
Kuwait. It lays down some of the essential foundation
work necessary for bringing about systematic and
constructive improvements in the teaching of Arabic
Grammar by computers.
However, our main concern in this study is, as we
have said, with the teaching of one of the aspects of
Arabic Grammar, in the above situation. Although the
use of computers for this purpose has only just begun,
the perspective of our approach will hopefully to
some extent, encourage their wider use.
The present study is divided into five chapters.
Chapter one offers a general introduction to the main
subject. The hypotheses made in this chapter constitute
the general framework for the following chapters.
The teaching of Western languages by computer as
opposed to the non-availability of such methods in the
Arab world, is discussed in chapter two.
Chapter three provides a background on which the
practical side of our study is based. The sources and
methodology of our experimental work in this thesis are
also treated in this chapter.
Chapter four is concerned with the results of this
experiment and the measurement of pupils' achievements
in Arabic Grammar during the experiment. A comparison
between the traditional method and that of the computer
is established by means of analysing the data concerned.
The last chapter concludes with suggestions for
further specific research needed in this field.
