Arabic language is one of the international languages, because it has Teaching vocabulary involves far more than looking up words in a dictionary and using the words in a sentence. Vocabulary is acquired incidentally through indirect exposure to words and intentionally through explicit teaching in specific words and word-learning strategies. Teaching grammar plays an essential role in every classroom. We might think that teaching grammar is just a matter of explaining grammar rules to students. Indeed, teaching grammar effectively is a much more complicated matter. As far as the teaching reading is concerned, everyday materials such as bus/train schedules, newspaper articles, advertisements, etc. become appropriate classroom materials. Reading such materials will develop communicative competence among the students. Change has been taking place due to technological developments, from pen and paper, to typewriter, to word processor, to networked computer, to design software capable of composing words, images, and sounds. These developments not only expanded the types of texts that writers produce, they also expanded immediate access to a wider variety of readers. Hence writing is an increasingly multifaceted activity. It needs to be practiced consistently in order to become a good writer. Hence, this paper attempts at explaining some methods involving in teaching vocabulary, grammar, reading and writing as they are essential parts of language teaching at every level.
