This paper presents practical steps towards constructing an educational curriculum for the purpose of teaching contemporary Arabic. Through incorporating modern techniques including some linguistic computing applications, statistics, and indexing in order to provide contemporary curricula to teach contemporary Arabic while incorporating modern educational technologies. The paper emphasizes, through computing technologies, how to prepare a curriculum from a range of essential ingredients needed in the contemporary Arab education for both natives and foreigners. For example, utilizing the terms that are mostly used to communicate in Arabic and highlighting the sentence-structures that are most common would help analyze and index contemporary Arabic. These computed results would help constructing a contemporary curriculum for natives and foreigners, one that is based on highly used terms, structures, grammar and tools. The next step consists of building a contemporary lexicon that is based on the learning technologies which is based on used Arabic, instead of on what’s “supposed” to be used. Then a modern lexicon will act as a quick reference to used Arabic, just like other nations. An explanation is included to show how such results were achieved through the usage of statistics and indexing in treating the huge body of the Arabic language with all its linguistic levels and different indicative properties.
