QFI partners with NaTakallam to give students free opportunities to engage in language practice and opportunities for cultural exchange without leaving the classroom.

NaTakallam (“we speak” in Arabic) connects displaced persons, called Conversation Partners (CP), with students around the world. Our partnership with NaTakallam provides virtual guest speaker sessions that allow students to interact and learn more about their CP’s lives, the Arab world, or simply to learn Arabic. Programs can be conducted in German, English, or Arabic (or a mix of both) as a single 60-minute session, or a three- or 10-part series, any of which can be integrated into an existing school class or an extracurricular club activity. NaTatakallam sessions can be scheduled year-round.

If you are a teacher and would like to apply for a QFI sponsored scholarship to bring NaTakallam to your school, please contact NaTakallam at
