Qatar University hosts Arabic language summit
“The meeting is a good opportunity to bring together experts from universities in the GCC to understand the current status of the Arabic language in order to ensure its continuity,” Hala Sultan Al-Easa, professor and CAS's associate dean for research and graduate studies, said. “We hope to put in practice the exchanged ideas in this meeting and organize mutual visits between heads of Arabic language departments from universities in the GCC.”
The event was themed “Study Plans and Variables Age - Development challenges and Prospects Update” and was held to address the challenges facing Arabic language development in the GCC.
“The meeting aims to provide a platform to discuss and develop contemporary study plans and programs," Maryam Al-Naemi, head of the CAS Arabic Language Department, said. "The Arabic language departments are responsible for providing the necessary support to enhance the visibility and the use of the Arabic language. This objective cannot be achieved without the establishment of an intellectual platform that helps us to develop study plans and interdisciplinary programs that facilitate the combination between the Arabic language and sciences.”
