Program Description

Since Arabic is witnessing an increasing interest world-wide, there is hardly a place on the globe where Arabic is not taught one way or another, for religious, cultural, economic and nationalistic reasons, in particular expatriate Arabs who are keen on teaching their children their mother-tongue. In addition, globalization is playing a major role in attracting non-Arabs to the study of Arabic orally and in writing. In the light of this interest of non-Arabs to learn Arabic, the idea to introduce a Specialized Diploma in Teaching Arabic to Non-Native Speakers arose. The Diploma aims at:

1. Qualify a generation of specialized teachers in the field, which may also create job-opportunities for teachers in Lebanon and abroad.

2. Educate qualified instructors to teach Arabic to non-native speakers, especially since the number of TAFL teachers in Lebanon is quite limited.
