The idea of this study is to try to connect between the ability to acquire the second language and the society's nature in which the language is used. The researcher seeks to apply his idea on the model of teaching Arabic to Turkish native speakers, in view of their need to use Arabic in their Turkish society. Because teaching Arabic language requires understanding the reality of its usage, whether that usage in its Arab society or in another society, this study seeks to provide a methodological vision of how to build a bilingual parallel corpus between Turkish and Arabic, then process this corpus to extract the the most suitable knowledge of Arabic vocabulary and structures adapted to Turkish learner society. The study will be guided by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages criteria. This research is based on a descriptive approach studying language usage in its two dimensions: quantitatively and qualitatively. It is the way combining both of corpus linguistics and educational linguistics. Among the aims of the study is to conciliate between educational books and the educational environment where the student finds himself forced to learn strange and rare vocabulary, structure and styles that he doesn't need, which affects his ability to practice and master language. Among the goals achieved by the research is developing a parallel corpus between Turkish and Arabic language, processing its material in order to teach Arabic to Turkish native speakers, providing a methodological vision of how to use this corpus in teaching Arabic as a second language and providing an easy way that helps to benefit from educational resources in saving time and effort spent in teaching and learning.
