About Diploma in Arabic Language at Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education

Overview

Arabic is a Semitic Language and is closely related to Aramaic and Hebrew. Literary Arabic is an official language of 27 countries and is spoken by well over 400 million native speakers in a wide region stretching across the Middle East, North Africa and the Horn of Africa.

Besides being the liturgical language of 1.6 billion Muslims, Arabic is also an official language of the Arab League, the Organisation of the Islamic Conference and the African Union and is one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

Through religious, academic, scientific, philosophical and business terminologies, Arabic has left important influences on other languages of the Islamic world, where Arabic is not the main or official language. Moreover, due to the vicinity and trade connections between Europe and Islamic lands, there have been major Islamic contributions and cultural influences to both medieval Europe and the Renaissance period.

All of these make the learning of the Arabic language fascinating, and this programme is designed to develop your knowledge, confidence, and communication skills.
