Abstract

The aim of this study is to find out the effect of the use of language games in the development of reading skills among non-native Arabic language speakers. The study has consisted of 40 learners from the beginner level at the Language Center / University of Jordan. The participants were divided into two groups: experimental group which were taught using the strategy of language games and a control group taught using the normal method. To fulfill the purpose of the study, the researcher prepared a test to measure reading skills, and to verify the validity and stability of the test. After doing all the necessary processing and analyzing procedures, the results of the study showed that there were statistically significant differences at the level of significance (a = 00.5) for the experimental group. This indicates the positive effect of learning using language games in reading skills. Whereas, There were no statistically significant differences at the level of significance (a = 00.5) in the development of reading skills among non-speaking Arabic language learners attributed to gender (male, female). Therefore, the researcher recommended the need to use the strategy of language games for the development of reading skills among non-speaking Arabic language learners.
