Preparations for the launching of the international certificate of proficiency in Arabic language

"Arabic is one of the most important living languages. However, it is facing many challenges that have undoubtedly stalled its spread as a glorious language that once contributed to science, art and knowledge."

Under the patronage of Ambassador Dr. Youness, the project's aim is to bring together the efforts of individual and institutional initiatives to agree on an objective and realistic application of the Arabic language and re-position it and letting it gain back its sovereignty in the fields of all knowledge.
The initiative is aimed to be a solution to the major challenges facing the Arabic language.
