Visit of USAID and DOD Officers

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

SQCC hosted an inter-agency Arabic immersion class of linguists from the U.S. Agency for International Development and Department of Defense. The class toured SQCC’s exhibition and learned (in Arabic!) about Omani history, Omani irrigation practices (the aflaj system), traditional handicrafts and dress.

The group also participated in Arabic presentation about Omani culture, history, and traditions. The participants asked questions about daily life in Oman, business practices, gender dynamics, and the role of tourism in the Omani economy.
