Enrollments in Arabic language programs are rapidly growing throughout the United States. Until recently, Arabic has received minimal attention in educational institutions. This chapter describes the textbook materials and software resources in the field of Arabic language teaching and learning. As Arabic programs and teachers rush to implement new teaching materials, modernize and improve curricula, attention is paid to enhancing the role of technology in teaching Arabic. This chapter presents a review of issues related to teaching and learning Arabic, software applications that may assist Arabic learners and an innovative example of hypertext software that may be used to facilitate reading proficiency in Arabic.
