QFI seeks to create a research agenda that explores issues related to the teaching and learning of Arabic in state funded primary and secondary schools globally. QFI is committed to promoting the teaching of Arabic in a communicative way, one that supports the various modes of communication (interpersonal, interpretive, presentational, and intercultural). We support classrooms demonstrating traits of 21st-century skills and global competency in action – classrooms that are interactive, student-centered, and encourage critical thinking. When it comes to teaching Arabic centered on this communicative approach, QFI views Arabic as one language that encompasses all its varieties.
To contribute to the dearth of literature, this QFI Call for Research Proposals focuses specifically on these topics in primary and secondary schools.
