One of those means is language games.

Also, describe the evaluation of their impressions and monitor their perceptions towards employing language games in their learning. The research adopted the quantitative approach using the questionnaire tool, and a questionnaire Bicen & Kocakoyun translated into Arabic was adopted in the study of Aboukhateta. This questionnaire consisted of twenty-seven questions according to the five-year Likert scale, and it included three axes: the impact of language games on mastering Arabic rhetoric from the student's point of view, evaluating students' impressions of language games, and monitoring their perceptions about language games in learning Arabic rhetoric. This questionnaire was distributed to thirty Malaysian students of Arabic-speaking non-native speakers at Yarmouk University in a purposeful manner.
