This study examines the implementation of Arabic language learning and cultural acculturation at Madrasah Aliyah Negeri Palopo and the benefits of acculturation. This theme becomes important, along with the increasing interest in learning Arabic and the need to understand the impact of cultural acculturation in the learning process. This research uses a descriptive qualitative method with data collection through observation, interview, and documentation. The results show that implementing Arabic learning in this Madrasah involves good planning, effective implementation, and constructive evaluation. Cultural acculturation was found to play an important role in learning, including understanding the differences between Arabic and Indonesian, assignments relevant to students' social lives, and giving appreciation for learning Arabic. The benefits of cultural acculturation include making it easier for students to understand Arabic, increasing learning motivation, and encouraging teachers to be more creative and innovative in teaching. This research demonstrates the importance of integrating culture into Arabic language learning and potentially opens up further research opportunities on how Arabic language teaching and learning can be improved through cultural acculturation.
