ISESCO chief receives Director General of Dakar Islamic Institute

Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) Dr. Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri received Director General of the Islamic Institute of Dakar Prof. Thierno KA at the ISESCO headquarters in Rabat, Morocco, on Thursday.

Talks during the meeting dealt with means of enhancing cooperation and coordination between ISESCO and the Institute in areas of mutual interest. These include the development of Arab-Islamic education and the teaching of the Arabic language to non-Arabic speakers in Senegal, where ISESCO supported the preparation of curricula for the intermediate and secondary stages.

It is noteworthy that ISESCO has extended support for the publication of the series of "Arabic the language of communication", which is the first educational document adopted by the Senegal's Ministry of Education to help students in public middle and high schools develop their abilities in the Arabic language, taking into account their environmental, social and cultural conditions and educational level.
