Manama: Shaikha Moza Bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), has lamented the inability of the Arabs to preserve their language by misusing modern communication technology. “Our failure to effectively use modern communication techniques has led to an inability to preserve the Arabic language,” Shaikha Moza said during her address at the second Renaissance of Arabic Language Forum. “It is unfortunate that a few decades ago, the Arabic language was more prevalent in children than it is today.” The two-day event, entitled ‘Linguistic Upbringing of The Arab Child – The Reality and Prospects for the Future’, is hosted by the World Organisation for Renaissance of Arabic Language (WORAL), a member of QF. The initiative promotes the teaching and learning of Arabic.
