Education Minister Dr. Majid bin Ali Al Nuaimi has affirmed the ministry’s commitment to improving the process of teaching and learning the Arabic language at all academic levels.
The process is based on the importance of the language in preserving the Arab identity and building the character of people proud of their nation and culture, he said.
Arabic is the language of the Holy Quran and it is connected with a rich intellectual and literary heritage. Learning it improves the students’ performance in other subjects, the minister said as he attended a virtual forum on Arabic organized by Gallali Boys’ Primary School.
Efforts to enhance the learning of Arabic include continuously developing curricula and teaching strategies, boosting teacher empowerment, allocating school centers for learning resources, and setting up general knowledge centers, he said.
Other actions include implementing student activities and launching programs in support of the efforts made in this field, mainly the allocation of daily classes for reading and integrating technology in the process of teaching and learning this language, he said.
