The importance of vocabulary in learning a second or foreign language cannot be denied. Past studies report that pre-university students do not master Arabic vocabulary knowledge and are less exposed to diverse vocabulary learning strategies. The issue of teaching vocabulary unsystematically and the lack of teaching materials that focus on vocabulary, are among the contributing factors to this problem. Therefore, this study aims to design an Arabic vocabulary teaching module for pre-university students in Malaysia, based on the principles of the Language Curriculum Design Model. In this study, the Fuzzy Delphi method was used by obtaining consensus from 17 selected Arabic language experts. The research questionnaire contains 67 items involving component items, elements and the content of module elements. Data analysis using the Fuzzy Delphi method was carried out by taking into account three main conditions, namely the threshold value (d), the percentage value of expert agreement (%) and the Fuzzy score (A). The findings of the study show expert consensus on all main component items (4) and module elements (17). While for the elemental content of 46 items, all were accepted except for 2 items that were rejected, namely the theme of war and security, and the strategy of creating mental images. This study has produced a PEKOSBAP module design based on the principles of the Language Curriculum Design Model. This study gives implications for curriculum developers and pre-university teachers to apply a form of teaching that is based on a more systematic model in the aspect of teaching vocabulary, to improve students' knowledge of Arabic vocabulary.
