Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine whether giving instructions to Arab EFL learners on Arabic loanwords in English would help them better translate and guess the meaning of these words. Sixty freshman students were randomly divided into two groups, control and experimental. The t-test results indicated that students who were told about Arabic loanwords in English did significantly better on the vocabulary translation test than those who were not told so. Suggestions on how to teach Arabic loanwords to Arab EFL learners were stated at the end of this paper.
