Arabic Language Centre in Sharjah welcomes 15 foreign students to its seventh batch

Dr. Mohammad Safi Al Mostaghanemi: “Our students will serve as ambassadors of Arabic language and culture in their home country”

Sharjah: The Arabic Language Academy (ALA) in Sharjah, is bringing together 15 students from 11 countries for the seventh edition of the Arabic language course conducted by its Arabic Language Centre (ALC). The course aims to introduce non-native speakers to Arabic not just academically, but socially and culturally as well, advancing their knowledge of the language through reading, listening, writing and speaking.

Students enrolled for the intensive 50-hour course will be partaking in 36 lessons delivered over a three-month period. All 15 students will take an evaluation examination at the end of the course, which will determine their readiness for the next level of the course. In this edition, ALC will be teaching students from India, China, Uzbekistan, United States, UK, Poland, Spain, Argentina, Russia and Pakistan.

ALC’s courses aim to not only promote the Arabic language by teaching to non-native speakers, but also further cross-cultural communication. They are designed to deepen the learner’s knowledge of standard Arabic as well as strengthen their communication skills by focusing on reading, writing, speaking, pronunciation and listening. The centre also focuses on educating its students on UAE’s culture and history and boost their community participation and involvement.

Speaking about the latest edition, Dr. Mohammad Safi Al Mostaghanemi, Secretary General of ALA, said: “Teaching Arabic to non-native speakers can serve to strengthen cultural ties between Arab countries and other nations. Students can serve as ambassadors of our language and culture in their home countries and play an instrumental role in furthering the emirate’s cultural project.”

The Secretary General of ALA underlined that the efforts of the Arabic Language Centre are part of ALA’s mission to preserve and promote Arabic language, aligned with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah. 

Dr. Al Mostaghanemi further noted that the seventh batch had been restricted to 15 students to conform to the safety and precautionary protocols in place in the country, adding that ALA was committed to ensuring learning continuity to meet the increasing demand for its Arabic language courses.
