ICCI Marks the UN's Arabic Language Day

Last weekend, on the occasion of the UN's Arabic Language Day, ICCI hosted two lectures by Mr. Belgacem Aboudi entitled "The Beauty of Arabic Language" and "Arabic Grammar: History and Principles".

The lectures were filled to capacity with people from all different backgrounds (Arabic speakers and non-Arabic speakers) and were highly praised by all of those who attended. The lectures were wrapped up with a Q&A session and Mr. Belgacem Aboudi was presented with a dagger as a token of appreciation from the Centre for his efforts.

The seminar room was also set up with Dr. Saleh Al-Moussawy's beautiful Arabic calligraphy art pieces. All of those that walked by were able to appreciate his work and also get some pieces custom-made.

The event continues until Tuesday, 19th December with the final art exhibition of Dr. Al-Moussawy's work at Chester Beatty Library's Lecture Hall, from 11am to 4pm

This event was sponsored by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.
