"I Speak Arabic" is an Arabic advocacy campaign, by Qatar Foundation International, that aims to humanize the Arabic language and Arab culture through storytelling.

The ispeakarabic.com platform provides open education resources for the learning and teaching of Arabic, an Arabic advocacy toolkit to start a program in your community and includes a series of documentary-style videos that highlight inspirational individuals around the world who benefited from speaking Arabic as a second language.

Join the #ISpeakArabic movement and upload a video of yourself talking about your love of the Arabic language and how it’s impacted your life, why it’s important, share insights on how to best learn it, or if you are just getting started, tell us why you want to learn Arabic!

We invite non-native students, teachers and professionals to join and submit a personal video for a chance to win a gift card of $500!

Enter our contest and submit your own #ISpeakArabic video! Learn more here: ispeakarabic.com/contest
