Students Perception Towards NLP-based Arabic Language Learning Strategy at a Private Islamic University in Makassar
Abstract: This paper reports on the results of a study on students perception towards the use of NLP-based strategy for learning Arabic language at Islamic universities in Makassar. The study used a method based on the Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) approach by developing a spot capturing model. The purpose or desired effect of the method was concerned with two parties, teacher and learners. Learners were expected to become happy, comfortable, and diligent, as well as find it easy to learn a foreign language. Teacher was also expected to feel the same in the teaching process. Results of the study showed that students were generally reluctant, anxious, and found it difficult to learn Arabic language. This indicated that the strategy for learning the language has so far been ineffective, therefore an alternative strategy was needed. A model developed upon the NLP approach was used as a new strategy of teaching and learning Arabic language for beginners. The new strategy was proved to be useful as about 78 % - 86 % of respondents found it interesting and they agreed with the model that was based on the Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) approach.
