Arabic Studies

Linguistics, just beyond the regions.

Linguistics has been relevant in any  scenario even to build the society in a better manner and is in existence as it is a need for cultural advancement. Arabic is one among the six languages which is officially recognised by the UN. Undoubtedly, it can be that it has made a grip in the cultural,economical and professional area. Thus, more than twenty three countries in the world have  considered Arabic as an official language. Rather, the Holy Quraan was penned  in Arabic language.

Millions in non native Arabic speaking countries like India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh and Pakistan are acquiring Arabic linguistic skills and they are good in performing the four core areas (LSRW) of the language. Our govt. is also considering the proposal to set up an Arabic university and will be in reality in the near future. An academic concentration on Arabic focuses on a world language widely used by communities in Northern African regions and Middle Eastern regions. The language is also spoken in many communities spread throughout the world.

 It’s taught in primary level and then to research level as well. Arabic as language has become a skill set along with other soft skills.
