In particular, it was also aimed at identifying the implementation of the techniques, practices and frequency of the usage of teaching and learning aids in the classroom. This research utilised the survey method where a sample of 91 students from the Faculty of Humanities, University of North Sumatra were involved. The study used questionnaires which were distributed to the student respondents to examine their evaluation toward the implementation of the teaching and learning of Arabic at the Faculty of Humanities. Data analysis used in this study comprised of descriptive statistics, namely frequency, mean and standard deviation by using SPSS version 18. The findings showed that the overall total for each research question in relation to the implementation of teaching and learning techniques from the perspective of the students was moderate (m = 3.13). The results also showed that the implementation of teaching and learning of Arabic in the classroom from the perspective of the students was also high (m = 3.52). The findings also demonstrated that the frequency of the use of teaching and learning aids in the classroom from the perspective of the students was low (m = 1.78). This study recommends that the lecturers need to have positive attitude toward learning and teaching techniques and implement the teaching and learning of Arabic using a more effective technique. In addition, the lecturers should also attempt to solve the problems faced in the teaching and learning of the Arabic language through a creative, innovative and effective use of instructional technology so that the students' Arabic language proficiency can be improved. Therefore, the latest teaching and learning techniques such as e-learning and mobile learning should be applied in the teaching and learning of Arabic at the Faculty of Humanities, University of North Sumatra, apart from improving the techniques and the frequency of usage of the existing techniques. This application will further strengthen and enhance proficiency in the language especially the mastery of the Arabic language among the students.
