Doha: Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) has opened its registration for language courses in spring 2022.
The courses are divided into two categories which are aimed at adults and children. For adults, the languages are Arabic, English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, and Turkish.
Meanwhile, for children, the languages are Arabic, French, Spanish, German, Mandarin Chinese, and Portuguese. The courses are given by the Institute of Translation and Interpretation (TII) of the College of Human and Social Sciences (CHSS).
CHSS adjunct professor and director of the TII language center, Dr Nima Nazari, said: “We welcome people of all ages and abilities. We ensure that students are immersed in a learning experience that is both effective and engaging.
He added, “Our instructors are native or near-native speakers who use up-to-date methodologies and technologies to accelerate students towards their goals.
Multilingualism is a great asset and is essential to be able to function in today’s global economy. A new language can help boost professional, political and business success.
TII also offers placement tests for students unsure of their language level, to ensure that the right education is being offered.
Adult classes will last 11 weeks, while kids classes will last 14 weeks. Children will engage in activities such as arts and crafts, theater, games and music.
All classes will be held at Penrose House in Education City. Children’s lessons will start on January 15 and adults on January 16.
