Title: Communication Problems Facing Arab Learners of English
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition
Subject Language: English
Abstract: Much research has been conducted so far discussing the various problems of Arab learners of English, but they have not tackled strategic competence, i.e. the use of communication strategies to solve communication problems, which is considered a very important component in communicative competence or communicative ability. Therefore, this paper aims to introduce the problems encountered by Arab learners of English, and to suggest solutions. First, this paper discusses the notion of communicative competence, and it defines strategic competence. Then, it briefly deals with the various definitions of communication strategies and taxonomies of communication strategies (henceforth CSs). The major portion of this paper is devoted to the problems of Arab learners of English in general, and the problems specific to Arab World University English language majors/graduates. Finally, the paper concludes with the suggestions for solving these problems by presenting the pedagogical implications of communication strategies.
