THREE postgraduate students from Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) left for Oman yesterday to study Arabic language for two months.

The language course is sponsored by the Oman government to encourage non-native speakers to study Arabic.

One of the participating students, Ustaz Adi Aismat Lamat, said he hoped the course would be able to help improve his Arabic speaking skills, adding that while many students in Arabic schools can write in Arabic well, most of them are still not fluent in the language.

“I hope this language course can help me improve my Arabic speaking skills and I will try to learn as much as I can from there,” said the 28-year-old.

The other students are Nur Atiqah Suimi and Siti Norhafizah Hj Salleh.

The participants will be studying Arabic at the Sultan Qaboos College for Teaching Arabic Language to Non-Native Speakers.

Present to see the Brunei students off was the Dean of the Faculty of Arabic Language and Islamic Civilization at UNISSA, Dr Siti Sara Haji Ahmad.
