Celebration of World Arabic Language Day

As Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, World Arabic Language Day has been celebrated on 18 December every year since 2012 in commemoration of the day in 1973 when the United Nations (UN) General Assembly adopted Arabic as the sixth official language used by the UN.
The Arabic language comes in a variety of dialects and artful forms, from intricate calligraphy to expressive poetry and philosophy, and to celebrate this dynamic language, ARC-WH invited speakers and guests to its headquarters in Manama, Bahrain, to sing, recite and discuss a language used by over 290 million people. The theme in 2018 was Arabic Language and Youth, which demonstrated the connection between Arabic’s contributions to culture and knowledge and the youth of today.
