Language Instructor – University of Sharjah
Based on my
experience as a graduate student in the Department of Arabic Language and
Literature at University of Sharjah, I would like to extend my deepest feelings
of appreciation for the Department and its faculty members. They have always
provided students with all the help and knowledge required for a Master’s
Degree, with all the necessary advising, guidance and follow up during
Student- First batch- Class of 2008
The Places that
stick in our memory are the most precious. Being a student in the Department of
Arabic Language and Literature at the University
of Sharjah was a special time in my life. It was the window through which I saw
the light. It gave me enthusiasm and curiosity towards our interesting Arabic
language. From my professors, I took the facts and the secrets of the
immortality of our beautiful Arabic language.
Head of the
Department of Evaluation- Curriculum Management
of Arabic Language and Literature was our home for theoretical and practical
knowledge. I was among the very first students who graduated from the
Department. I met experienced faculty with different Arabic language
specializations. I felt lucky and proud to have been granted this educational
opportunity. His Highness, Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi established
this university to give our community the opportunity to study about our
language. In this department, I understood how rewarding getting an education
is. I knew how dignified and special it is to study the Arabic Language. I
learned from my professors the best teaching and learning methods. I learned
about the Arabic language treasures that were given to us by ancient scholars.
I learned the importance of using the correct Arabic language in teaching and
learning, and the importance of scientific research and teaching curricula. Our
undergraduate education prepared us for our Master’s degrees. The least I can do is thank the faculty in
this department and wish them the best.
Dr. Mariam Said
I spent several
years of my life in the Department of Arabic Language and Literature at the
University of Sharjah. I did my BA and my MA there. I met the best Arabic
language professors in the world. The environment was very encouraging and
motivating. We did so much as members of the Arabic Language Students Society
and spent a lot of time in the auditorium reciting a play, attending a seminar,
or engaging in an activity. This
department means a lot to me. When I think of it, I think of so many beautiful
memories for me and for my classmates who are now scattered all over the Arab
world, applying the precious education we received in this beacon of knowledge.
I would like to
extend my appreciation to the faculty members at Department of Arabic Language
and Literature. They did a great effort with us and facilitated our educational
journey on all levels, especially for Master’s students. My message is one of
deep gratitude for their generosity of heart. I extend special thanks to Dr.
Mariam Belajeed and Dr. Mahmoud Yaqout for everything they did for us.
