Foreign Service Institute (FSI) Delegates Visit to the Center of Continuing Education (CCE) at AUK

Delegates from the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) visited the CCE at AUK to review the progress of the Intensive Arabic Language Program, a language training course created for the U.S. State Department employees in Kuwait. Dr. David Red, Director of Near East, Central & South Asian Languages - FSI Washington - USA, and Mr. Hani Alam, Arabic Regional Language Training Coordinator - U.S. Embassy Rabat - Morocco, met with Mrs. Buthaina Al-Khubaizi, Director of CCE and AUK President, Professor Nizar Hamzeh.

CCE began collaborating with FSI in 2012 to create and offer the program, which is customized to enhance their professional and practical communication, and aims to develop the participants' Arabic language proficiency. The course content includes one-on-one conversations with the instructor, field trips, and presentations, among other dynamic and interactive lessons.

"We are pleased to continue offering this intensive program to FSI participants. The training methodology used in the Program offers a highly customized approach, with course content tailored to individual participants. This year, we have a number of participants enrolled in the Program and we are expected to complete the course requirements by June 2016," said Mrs. Al Khubaizi
