Musharraf, Muhammad Nabeel
Online Submission, Australian Journal of Humanities and Islamic Studies Research v1 n1 p6-13 Jul-Dec 2015
Languages are tools that connect people globally and help them acquire knowledge. It is a highly critical decision to choose a language or a set of languages for inclusion in curriculum in a manner that would be most productive at personal, community and national level. What we need to see in our next generation has to be "sowed the seeds for" today. Our study presents an overview of choices related to languages inclusion in curriculum for Muslim children from the perspective of acquiring "local languages," "Arabic," "English and other international languages." Findings suggest that learning this set comprising of 4 languages is already practiced in different cultures and institutions. However selection of languages to be included in mix needs be carefully considered. Paper also highlights factors that govern influence of a particular language globally or for communities and recommend a set of languages that can be adopted for curriculum with further research. An appendix further explains the points highlighted in this paper.
