Language enjoys a very significant status in the world. English being the international language of communication, however, the importance of another language can never be undermined or underestimated as every language hold a great value within itself and speakers of every language have a profound love for their native languages which renders a greater significance to any given language. Globalization has a huge impact on English language teaching alongwith internet. The recent technology has made the teaching methods easy in Arab countries including Saudi Arabia. English is the only language taught in Saudi public schools, from middle school (which is not taught in primary schools).

Chapter Summary22



Language is a means of communication, and everyone learns a language to communicate from early childhood. Language is very important because it serves as a means for people to exchange their ideas, thoughts and feelings with each other.

Once a person learns a language, he becomes a member of a linguistic community. Since language helps a person to express their love, sadness, anger, and happiness, it has become a component of every culture in this world. For this reason, people from across the globe develop a deep rooted love and emotional bonding for their mother tongues. However, with the concept of globalization which has over taken the entire world, the need to communicate in a uniform language has become increasingly important.

When pupils, whose native language is not English, embark on learning English language, it becomes a challenge for them to acquire a command over the second language. This study will analyze the persistent and potential problems that are faced by Saudi Arabian university students while reading English as a language.
