The Faculty of Education at USAL celebrated the World Arabic Language Day during which there was a speech delivered by the Lebanese writer Dr. Samah Idriss. Dr. Idriss shared his experience in the literary writing for the youth, and in lexicography. He called for preserving the Arabic language, and urged the university students to read in Arabic because it is a nice and interesting language. Dr. Idriss added that this language embraces our history, present and future.
Later, there was a talk with the students who posed questions related to the capacity of the Arabic language to keep pace with our time and absorb its sciences of technology. The guest encouraged students to express their thoughts and feelings in simple Arabic language and to disregard the internet language or Latin letters.
The meeting was attended by the university vice-chancellor, faculty deans, teachers and a group of students, by the end of which, the dean of the Faculty of Education presented the Plaque of Appreciation to Dr. Idriss in appreciation of his contributions in language and literature.
