WORAL Holds Workshop for Teachers in Kyrgyzstan

The World Organization for Renaissance of Arabic Language (WORAL), in cooperation with the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) and the Spiritual Administration of Muslims in Kyrgyzstan, recently held a workshop for Arabic language teachers at the city of Issyk-Kul in Kyrgyzstan.
The workshop, which ran from July 20 – 24, saw the participation of 29 teachers from different governorates of Kyrgyzstan. The workshop concentrated on the modern methods of teaching Arabic to non-Arabic speakers, including planning Arabic language lessons for non-native speakers, the role of modern educational methods in enhancing the performance of the teacher and the school, facilitating self-learning activities outside schools, developing the four essential skills in learning a language – listening, speaking, reading, and writing – and evaluating the level of learning for non-native Arabic speakers.

The workshop included presentations delivered by Dr. Moulay Ali Suleimani, professor at the faculty of literature at University Sultan Moulay Slimane in Morocco; Dr. Adel Bourawi, specialist at the programs of teaching Arabic to non-natives at ISESCO; and Gorabay Shirgaziov, Assistant Mufti of Kyrgyzstan. WORAL Project Manager, Dr. Amr Gomaa, was also present as a representative for Dr. Ali Al Kubaisi, Director General of WORAL.
The workshop comes within the context of cooperation between WORAL, a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), and ISESCO to organize training and educational workshops for Arabic-language teachers in non-Arab countries including Chad, Malaysia, Kyrgyzstan, and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
