QFI is an expert in the professional development of Arabic language teachers. To this end, our aim is to support primary and secondary teachers of Arabic, as well as teachers of social studies, math, science, and the arts, who intend to explore the Arab world as part of their curriculum. We offer online and in-person professional development opportunities alongside access to high-quality resources for teachers. We also foster a community of educators – a peer network – where knowledge and experience is shared, and a deeper understanding of the Arab world and its language, history, cultures, and peoples is achieved.
We support teachers through a variety of programs and grants that focus on professional and curriculum development. This includes access to engaging, high-quality learning and teaching resources—from books to in-class virtual exchanges. These opportunities provide new spaces for learning, teaching strategies and materials, and ways to collaborate with peers.Learn More
We know that and that finding quality resources that are engaging, and also aligned or easily aligned with established learning standards, is a challenge. At QFI, we have worked with teachers and education experts to create and share classroom-ready lesson plans, activities, and interactive tools for students to learn about the Arabic language, and the history and culture of the Arab world. We offer resources in English, German, and Arabic.Learn More
Allow me to express my sincere thanks and appreciation to you particularly and to all QFI personnel that I have interacted with over the last three years. Knowing you, QFI family, has empowered me as an Arabic educator here in the U.S.. Even when I went to present QFI in London, I surprisingly felt so lucky and special compared to other Arabic educators there. QFI’s supported and guided me, offered me the best opportunities and kept me abreast of all the latest language teaching resources and innovations.
