University of Bahrain (UoB)'s Faculty of Engineering student Khawla N. Bu Khammas has creatively designed a language training center for nonnative speakers of Arabic language.
The blueprints feature creative touches commensurate with an educational environment. The project's design was conceived reliant upon the study course program in the UoB's Facutly of Engineering Department of Interior Design for the purpose of safeguarding students' identity and preservation of the language of the Holy Koran.
The proposed center comprises the following sections: classrooms for teaching the Arabic language, literature, poetry, calligraphy, linguistic etymology, a convention hall for linguists and poets.
The center's one-layered building occupies an area of 4000 square meters, including classrooms, administration building, library, conference auditorium, exhibition hall, and a spacious conventional Arabian cafeteria. The project is the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The project's designer said that she hopes that the Ministry of Culture sponsors her project as the Ministry is interested in youths' projects, especially creative and outstanding projects.
This project was put on show in the end of the past academic year 2012/2013 as part of student projects to satisfy the requirements for graduation from the University of Bahrain's Faculty of Engineering.
