The Business Studies Department, through the BSD Staff Development Unit (SDU), is currently conducting an Arabic Speaking Course entitled Developing Communicative Competence through Spoken Arabic. With the approval of the BSD-HOD Ms. Nahid Al Shukaili, the program commenced last Feb 8, 2021 and is expected to run for 10 weeks. The course is open to all faculty members of the Business Studies Department.
The course is conducted by Dr. Mohammed Khamis Jamil Al Qutaiti, one of the faculty members of the Marketing Section of the Business Studies Department. Dr. Qutaiti’s wide experience in the field of education and in teaching formal Arabic is highly appreciated by the participants of the course. For the entirety of the course, Dr. Qutaiti is focusing on the rudiments of the Arabic Language with the end in mind that the participants will be able to confidently engage in basic conversations and will be able to structure sentences correctly in Arabic.
The BSD is highly grateful for the efforts of Dr. Qutaiti and the BSD Staff Development Unit and for the eagerness and appreciation of all the participants. The department wishes for the continuance of this course in the future.
