Arabic Language Learning for Turkish Students at Darussalam Gontor University 2022-2023

  • Edo Kurniawan University of Darussalam Gontor


Arabic is the native tongue of Muslims and is always spoken and read during prayer and worship. However, few individuals comprehend it. For this reason, Arabic is taught in both elementary and postsecondary schools. In 2022, five Turkish students already enrolled in the S1 (Bachelor) program at the Ushuluddin Faculty, Al-Qur'an and Tafsir study program, at UNIDA Gontor. The UNIDA Gontor matriculation program is a preparatory program for pupils who have never studied Arabic and are not KMI Gontor alumni. This one-year program is divided into two semesters. This study seeks to explain and describe the Arabic language matriculation program's role in enhancing Turkish students' mastery of Arabic and Islamic knowledge at UNIDA Gontor. This is a descriptive qualitative study involving the collection of data through observation, interviews, and documentation (three angles). According to the findings of this study, the Arabic language learning procedure for Turkiye UNIDA Gontor students consisted of four stages: planning, organizing, implementing, and controlling. Internal factors, namely those attained by each participant, are both supportive and inhibiting. External factors, namely those originating from curricular and extracurricular activities and programs, the environment, methods, and adequate facilities, are also supportive and inhibiting.
