Purpose: This paper aims to evaluate the teaching and learning processes of the Arabic course in the high schools of Zabol County. Methodology: Descriptive-correlational method was applied as the research method and the statistical population was comprised of two groups – students and teachers of Arabic course. It had a practical aim and relies on the general hypothesis stating that the Arabic course taught at the high schools of Zabol does not attain the acceptable level. Using separate questionnaires, the data regarding the level of acceptability of teaching and learning as perceived by students, teachers and textbooks were collected. The data were analyzed using the Kolmogorov–Smirnov test, one-sample t-test and independent t-test, Spearman’s rank correlation and analysis of variance. Findings: The results indicated that the level of acceptability was lower than average regarding two factors: students and textbooks; furthermore, it was slightly higher than average regarding teachers. To enhance the level of acceptability it is recommended to create an Arabic atmosphere using posters, brochures and images and using the visual capabilities like watching movies and cartoons related to the lesson. Conclusion: In addition, produce Arabic software and video games and teaching Arabic using various games and reducing uninteresting pictures is suggested.
