Imad HALLAK Prof. Imad Hallak taught Arabic in different associations at Concordia University and other institutions in Montreal since 2001 until now. He developed a distinct Arabic Program called “Al Dhad” which has become popular among many institutions for teaching Arabic language. This program is taught also through online courses to students in different countries around the world. The used approach incorporates the classical composing method in addition to the most advanced ways of teaching foreign languages used in leading institutions around the world. This hybrid approach molded in the logic of visual computer programming languages resulted in developing the innovative concept of “Visual Arabic”. The applications of this concept makes understanding Arabic an easy experience, overcoming boring vocabulary drills and sterile memorization of syntax that limit students ability to understand and speak foreign languages. One of the most important aspects of the Visual Arabic method is developing the student intuition in Arabic (Saliqa) using the student’s natural linguistic disposition in the context of the Universal Grammar School’s of Chomsky. Using this method, learning becomes an enjoyable activity which has a reference in the student s native linguistic experience.In addition, the topics of teaching are organized according to a logical progression that allows the student to map his/her knowledge in an easy and systematic way. Moreover, the quality and amount of vocabulary learned at each stage is well adjusted to improve the student’s expressive abilities along with his/her comprehension and practice of grammatical rules.These skills enable the student to be self-reliant in improving his/her level in Arabic after finishing the program.
