English Phrasal Verbs and the Arab Learner

Auther : Mufeeq Doushaq, Hisham Sawaf

Many Arab students learning English as a foreign language face different types of difficulties as a result of wide differences between English and Arabic (their mother tongue) in almost all areas phonological, morphological and syntactic. English phrasal verbs (Verb + article) represent one of the most different areas of learning English for Arab students. Basically, this is due to the fact that this linguistic phenomenon (the phrasal verbs) is more common in English than in Arabic. Moreover, although these verbs are rare in Arabic, they differ to a long extent from the English Phrasal verbs in their structure, distribution and idiomatic meaning. The study has shown that this important area of the English language has been neglected by both English Language teachers and syllabus designers in almost all stages, especially the university stage. This has been reflected on students’ performance. Therefore, they suffer a lot in understanding and using these verbs. So, the present study recommends that more attention should be given to the teaching of these verbs. This can be done through the development of new syllabi which take into consideration both the structural and functional aspects of these English phrasal verbs. They must be introduced and taught in real life situations which highlight their importance for a nature like mastery of English.
