Arabic Language Day
December 18 is Arabic Language Day : spoken by some 422 million individuals worldwide!
In 1966, a resolution was adopted to increase the presence of the Arabic language at UNESCO, becoming an official UN working language in 1974.
Among many initiatives around the world to promote the Arabic language, is the setup of the King Salman International Complex for the Arabic Language as well as global Saudi initiative to award academic accreditation centers and programs teaching the language to non-native speakers. One of many admirable global efforts to protect our precious Arabic language!
