AAMC’s Arabic & Emirati Studies Division Showcases Benefits of Reading

3 years

The Year of Reading has proven to be a wonderful opportunity for the Arabic & Emirati Studies Division at the HCT-Al Ain Men’s College (AAMC) to showcase the benefits of reading, by participating in a UAE Reads event in the Al Yahar Festival Center on February 23 and 24.

On the first day of the reading-themed event, hosted by the Al Maqam Municipality, a group of Arabic language students gave a series of informative presentations about different books they had read.

The presentations were organized by Dr. Ehab Ibrahim, AAMC Arabic Studies faculty member, and supported by Dr. Yahya Al Ansaari, AAMC College Director.

On the Wednesday, Radi Al Waqfi, Acting Chair of Arabic & Emirati Studies, gave a workshop about the importance of reading and how we can encourage students and the community to be active readers.
