Ramadan, the month of piety, patience, humility, and charity, is a spiritual time where Muslims across the globe refrain from eating and drinking from dawn to dusk. Ramadan in the UAE is a deeply cultural experience and members of the country’s large expatriate population often find themselves curious and fascinated by the religious observance, making the holy month the ideal time to learn the culture, traditions and the poetic Arabic language in order to better understand the profoundly traditional customs of the region.
Ramadan Etiquette & Cultural Awareness Workshop: This free workshop is brought to you by Eton Institute in partnership with Dubai Knowledge Village and Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding (SMCCU). The 4 hour workshop will be facilitated by Mr. Nasif Kayed, General Manager of SMCCU, scheduled on 30th July, 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Auditorium, Block 1, Dubai Knowledge Village.
Free Arabic courses: Every year for the last 5 years, Eton Institute has been offering a free course in Arabic language during the month of Ramadan and this year is no different. This Ramadan, the free Arabic course will be conducted three times a week on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm, throughout the holy month, starting on 1st August. It will cover an entire beginner’s level in Arabic, with 15 minutes of each session being devoted to Ramadan etiquette and cultural awareness. Keeping in mind the high demand and limited places available, the Institute will be announcing the registration details only through their Facebook (www.facebook.com/
