Abstract AR

من الواضح أن القراءة مهارة أساسية مطلوبة في سياق تعليم / تعلم لغة أجنبية.

لذلك ، غالبا ما يتم تضمين النصوص الأدبية في مناهج اللغة الإنجليزية كلغة أجنبية.

تم إعداد هذه الدراسة لمعرفة ما إذا كان متعلمي اللغة الإنجليزية كلغة أجنبية يواجهون صعوبات في استنتاج النصوص الأدبية التي تستكشف المشاكل والصعوبات التي يواجهونها.

لذلك ، فإن نية الباحثين في إجراء الدراسة الحالية هي التركيز على هذه المشاكل والصعوبات في التقييم قدر الإمكان لتقديم دليل على كيفية تعلم اللغة و التي نأمل أن تساعد معلمي اللغة الإنجليزية كلغة أجنبية في مهمتهم.

من أجل ذلك ، تم تعيين 200 من تلاميذ المدارس الثانوية في اللغة الإنجليزية كلغة أجنبية كمشاركين في هذه الدراسة.

تم ضبطهم على اختبار كتابي يتضمن عددًا من الأسئلة الاستنتاجية بالإضافة إلى الأسئلة الحرفية.

تم تحليل البيانات التي تم جمعها باستخدام برنامج SPSS.

وأكدت النتائج أن المشاركين يواجهون مشاكل في استنتاج النصوص الأدبية وأن الإجابة على الأسئلة الاستنتاجية أصعب من الإجابة على الأسئلة الحرفية.

وجدت أكثر من الدراسة أن كلا من الذكور والإناث متساوون في قدرتهم على استنتاج النصوص الأدبية
