Move to Introduce English in Arabic Nurseries Hailed
DUBAI - Children at a young age are more linguistically inclined in comparison to the later stages in their life.
Parents thus believe that if English is taught in state-run and Arabic nurseries and schools it will make their children more proficient when they make their transition into the English education system.
Recent media reports stated that state-run nurseries will introduce English to children as young as four as part of the educational reforms by the Ministry of Education.
