SQCC hosts University of Maryland College Park Summer Arabic Institute

Friday, July 14, 2017

SQCC hosted Arabic students from the University of Maryland College Park on Friday 14 July. The group toured SQCC’s permanent exhibition space and learned (in Arabic!) about Omani history, Omani irrigation practices (the aflaj system), traditional handicrafts and dress. The class also toured the new seafaring exhibition, From Sinbad to the Shabab Oman: A Seafaring Legacy.

After touring the exhibitions, the students listened to and participated in a Arabic presentation about Omani culture, history, and traditions. The participants asked questions about daily life in Oman, the Omani dialect, and celebrations in Oman.
