In the Education sector, there are several obstacles faced by non-native speaker students who learn a foreign language. Although, they currently have got their first language to help them learn a foreign language such as English and Arabic, while it does not rule out the possibility of acquiring a second language. Language learning is always driven by the language skills, in which each student must pass on four language skills that have different difficulties in each skill. In this case, it is very interesting to explore the problems and effective strategies used to help non-native speaker students overcome the existed language problems. This writing aims to find out the various problems faced by students in obtaining foreign languages such as English and Arabic and by knowing the existed problems the researcher also finds out the solution to at least reduce the problems. Hence, to answer the research objectives, the researcher used the Library research method. The findings revealed several problems within each language skill and found several solutions in the form of teaching strategies to reduce problems in language understanding in students.
