Within the framework of the preliminary phase of the action programme of ICESCO and Hamdan bin Rashid Project “Mishkat” for Arabic language teaching skills for non-Arabic speakers, “Mishkat” Hall at ICESCO Headquarters hosted a workshop on “Basic principles of integrating language skills in teaching Arabic for non-Arabic speakers”.

The workshop, held on Thursday, May 26, 2022, saw the participation of four groups of educational staff working in the field of teaching Arabic remotely from Chad, Nigeria, Benin and Guinea, as well as a group of young researchers and teachers of Arabic for non-Arabic speakers from Morocco, and Senegal.

In his welcome address, Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, ICESCO Director-General (DG), commended the attention that the participants from various countries accord to the development of their skills and educational performance.

He also stressed ICESCO’s keenness to turn “Mishkat,” which was established this year in cooperation with the Hamdan Bin Rashid Foundation, into an international beacon of training and qualification in teaching Arabic for non-Arabic speakers and other fields of the Organization’s action considering its huge potential for organizing face-to-face training sessions and workshops for a large number of participants from different countries.

Dr. M’hamed Ismaili Alaoui, international expert, moderated this workshop, which benefited 112 educational staff, including male and female Arabic teachers from ICESCO’s Regional Educational Center in Chad, ICESCO’s Pole of Excellence in Nigeria, Ibn Batouta African Institute in Benin and the Arabic Language Department at the General Lansana Conté University, in Conakry, Guinea, as well as some Moroccan educational institutions.

The workshop aimed at enabling participants to improve their pedagogical skills in teaching Arabic and encourage them to develop their pedagogical performance, adopt modern educational methods in teaching the four language skills (listening, reading, speaking and writing), and learn the strategies for their integration into the teaching process.
