What is World Arabic Language Day?
As the name suggests, December 18th is a day to celebrate the beauty, cultural diversity and importance of the Arabic language. The date coincides with the day in 1973 that the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted Arabic as the sixth official language of the organization.
The theme for this year's day is “Arabic Language, a bridge between civilisations”. Which is a reminder of the important role Arabic plays in connecting people through culture, science, literature and more. The theme also highlights the history of Arabic which played a crucial role in creating and transmitting knowledge as well as improving dialogue and building peace.
Which is why we wanted to celebrate the day and provide resources you can use to get involved!
