Pedagogy and Strategies in Writing for the Arab Learners of English sets a new benchmark in EFL situations in the Arab world. Writing by far is the most complex language skill, more so if it has to do with a foreign language as English is in this part of the world. Dr. Nisreen teaches English at Qassim University, KSA. Before she took up her current assignment, she had the opportunity to work with secondary level school children in Jordan. Thus her vast and varied exposure to a variety of Arab learners gave her the right insight into the drawbacks of the EFL teaching conditions and the needs of the learners. This book offers teaching strategies to tackle the writing issues of the learners. While it is true that no pedagogy or teaching plan can be a fool proof solution to EFL class dynamics, this book can act as a ready reference for many teachers who may improvise upon strategies suggested here.
