So, the lessons of dictation must take its adequate attention within the context of teaching Arabic for non-Arab learners. Teachers must know the effective strategies of teaching diction in order to get the best use of the lesson. This paper aims to find out the reasons that lead to weakness in this important skill, dictation, among non-Arabic speakers at Al-Imam Abdulrahman bin Faisal University.

Key words: Weakness of Dictation Skills, Non-Arab Learners, Arabic Language.
