Abstract: The purpose of this research is to examine the perceptions of multi-level Arabic as a foreign language (AFL) online learners of reading and creating digital comics in their online classroom. Data were collected from 23 multi-level online AFL students who participated in a 6 weeks fully online comic-based course where they read a comic each week with the teacher and create a digital comic using a web-based comic creation tool related to the topic they have read in class. Participants were asked to respond to a questionnaire and participate in group interviews at the end of the experiment. Results show that the majority of the students from different levels found reading comics to be enjoyable, motivating and useful to the development of their reading skills and vocabulary acquisition. However, students’ perceptions toward the impact of reading comics on students’ cultural awareness were more positive in the advanced class in comparison with the low-level classes. Moreover, findings revealed that creating comics was enjoyable to the majority of students and that it provided them with a sense of achievement and allowed them to be more creative with their language. Despite being viewed by the majority of the students as a time-consuming task, they stated that it was useful to their language proficiency. Thus, these results highlight the importance of integrating reading and creating comics in the AFL classrooms and opens the door for integrating more authenticity, innovation and technology in the AFL classrooms.
