Abdulaziz Saud Albabtain Academy of Arab Poetry organizes a program for teaching the Arabic language to foreign diplomatic missions

September 29, 2017

         The Arabic Poetry Academy, affiliated with Abdulaziz Saud Albabtain Cultural Foundation, has announced a new free program for teaching the Arabic language to non-native speakers, specifically targeting foreign diplomatic missions residing in Kuwait. This program is part of the academy's activities for the upcoming cultural season.

         Around 120 diplomats, including 15 ambassadors, joined the program. The opening ceremony took place at Albabtain Central Library for Arab Poetry. This course is part of the free courses that the Foundation consistently organizes in various parts of the world.

         The program started on Thursday, October 5th, and continues until January 13th of the following year. It has received significant interest from ambassadors, members of diplomatic missions, and their families.

         Abdulaziz Saud Albabtain, the Chairman of the Foundation, stated that this program aligns with the Foundation's objectives of promoting the Arabic language and enhancing its presence in introducing Arab culture's history, present, and future. He emphasized that the aim of the program is to empower learners of the language to personally explore our culture, fostering cultural balance with nations whose languages currently have a strong presence among societies.

         Albabtain added that since its establishment in 1989, the Foundation has sought to hold Arabic language courses for non-native speakers, but this is the first time the Foundation has organized courses specifically for diplomatic missions. He praised the positive response from diplomats who appreciated and engaged with the idea, with over a hundred participants from thirty diplomatic missions in Kuwait registering for the course.
