ARA­BIC'S PLACE AS A GLOBAL LAN­GUAGE

Qatar Today - - CITY LIFE -

Co­in­cid­ing with United Na­tions Ara­bic Lan­guage Day, Qatar Foun­da­tion In­ter­na­tional (QFI) has launched its 'I Speak Ara­bic' cam­paign.

QFI aims at con­nect­ing cul­tures through a com­mu­nity of learn­ers, ed­u­ca­tors, par­ents and school ad­min­is­tra­tors and fo­cuses on learn­ing more about the Ara­bic lan­guage and the Arab cul­ture. QFI has also de­vel­oped an Ara­bic ad­vo­cacy kit with de­tailed in­for­ma­tion on how to start, avail­able for down­load on the I Speak Ara­bic plat­form. Mag­gie Mitchell Salem, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of QFI, said: “The de­mand for for­eign lan­guage skills, and the ben­e­fits of pos­sess­ing them, has grown rapidly over the past decade. Ara­bic is no ex­cep­tion. We hope this ini­tia­tive will in­crease aware­ness of Amer­i­cans study­ing Ara­bic and learn­ing about Arab cul­ture, while also en­cour­ag­ing many more to do the same.”
