Subject Highlights



The preface outlines the two conundrums of Arabic instruction in Israel, namely the failure of the school system to inculcate Arabic proficiency in its Jewish students, and the failure of Arab university students to translate their native knowledge of the language into superior academic performance. The current work is then situated within the literature, especially the research on Arabic language policy, the Arabic Linguistic Tradition, securitisation, Arabic instruction in Israel, and cognition across cultures.
