Purpose: The study explores the process of using Arabic websites for Arabic language learning, utilising the Arabic Corpus Linguistic approach. This approach enables data-mining out of websites, systematically compiling the mined data, as well as processing the data for the express purpose of Arabic language teaching including its clusters, such as Arabic pragmatics, Arabic linguistics, and Arabic translation teaching as well.
Methodology: The research is written descriptively and utilises qualitative methods used for analysing the process and step-by-step procedures to be executed to make good use of the data.
Main Findings: This study is conducted based on the theory of source-based teaching, while the process of utilising the websites is systematically elaborated through the corpus linguistic mechanism. The research concludes that almost all Arabic websites can be employed to be authentic, reliable teaching sources. The sources can be made good use of for teaching the four language competencies, for being the object of linguistic studies and for translation through the particular use of websites whose contents are bilingual or multilingual.
Implications/ Applications: The utilisation of the Corpus for teaching and learning has still been needing wide-spreading and promoting either among practitioners or among researchers of the Arabic language in Indonesia.
Novelty/Originality of this study: This study highlights that almost Arabic-language websites are one of the richest sources of learning. These learning resources can be used for language learning and various other dimensions of scientific Arabic. Corpus linguistics has many benefits for learners and teachers in Arabic language learning. This study gives the new approach of Arabic teaching-learning using website resources, and the dynamic of Arabic learning using technology.
