Those with a career in international relations understand the sheer indispensability language has in their vocation, forming the very core of the profession as a whole. With the Arabic language’s ever growing prevalence in global affairs and as an official working language for the United Nations, diplomats from all over the world are in greater need than ever before to have a good grasp of the language. Therefore, here at Arabeya we have taken great care in formulating the Arabic for Diplomats course, which meets the diverse requirements of modern day diplomacy. Depending on individual needs, the focus ranges from being on public speaking in meetings, conferences or summits; reading and writing, and critical analysis of texts; interpretation and translation of various materials; exposure to cultural sensitivities and the correct ways of communication; and on the integration of Egyptian Colloquial Arabic into the lessons. Students for this course will be prepared for foreign ministry Arabic language exams.
