Il terzo stadio dell’imparare
Piacere e bellezza del testo ti Tammān Ḥassān
In 1983 the eminent Egyptian linguist Tammām Ḥassān (1918-2011) wrote al-Tamhīd fī iktisāb al-luġa al-ʿarabiyya li-ġayr al-nāṭiqīn bi-hā (Introduction to the Acquisition of Arabic Language by Non Arabic Speakers), an essential work in the field of Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language, where he theorised his three-level approach for the acquisition of Arabic language by non Arabs consisting of the first level of knowledge, the second of comprehension and the third, the ‘enjoyment level’ (marḥalat al-istimtāʿ). The aim of the study is to shed light on the third level of language acquisition, which allows learners to detect the beauty of a text and results particularly interesting since it considers certain aspects that characterise Arabic language specificity and legacy such as literary taste (taḏawwuq adabī), stylistic embellishments, figures of speech, etc.
