Chapter Summary

For some years author have considered media Arabic as a kind of keystone in the Arabic language spectrum - a dominant primary producer of language in terms of abundance and influence. Written news is considered by some Arabic researchers to be, almost by definition, a major source and primary context of what is referred to as Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), the form of Arabic most widely studied and used for writing. Media Arabic covers the skills and knowledge necessary to understand and explore international and regional events from an Arab point of view, but it can also be a key factor in structuring and defining explicit spoken and written standards as goals for learners of Arabic as a second language. In developing proficiency guidelines and skill level definitions, in preparing materials, in communicative classroom methodology, media Arabic can play a central role.

Keywords:media Arabic; modern standard Arabic (MSA)
