We work with teachers, schools, administrators, and universities to help make the teaching and learning of Arabic as accessible and professional as other world languages. This is how we contribute:


How QFI fills the Arabic education gap

Arabic is a common offering at universities. But the lack of language policy frameworks, resources, and teacher development prospects makes Arabic education a rarity at the K-12 levels—and this is the period most critical for language acquisition.

QFI works with schools, administrators, and policymakers to fill these critical gaps and make Arabic instruction as professional and accessible as other world languages. At the end of the day, the goal is for students to become more informed, productive, and compassionate citizens of a globalized world.
