In a bid to promote the status and presence of Arabic at the international level and strengthen its global role in anchoring cultural and educational exchange and knowledge sharing, consolidating human and civilizational communication and achieving peaceful coexistence, in light of the growing interest of many non-Arab diplomats in learning Arabic, the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) is launching a video series on “Diplomatic Outlook on Arabic Language.”
The series will feature a host of non-Arab ambassadors and diplomats talking about their personal experiences in learning Arabic, acquiring its linguistic skills, and understanding its social and political culture, as well as their advice to new Arabic learners.
Through this cultural and civilizational program, ICESCO aims to promote its leadership, guidance and anticipatory roles in serving and disseminating Arabic worldwide.
The videos will be posted successively on ICESCO’s YouTube Channel and social media pages and accounts, every Thursday, starting from Thursday, June 16, 2022.
The first episode will feature Mr. Samuel Warberg, Regional Spokesperson for the US State Department, who will talk about his Arabic learning journey and how this language has helped him understand Arab literature and poetry and facilitated his communication with Arabs.
