FLT Continues to Develop Sustainable Partnerships

The Faculty of Languages and Translation continues to develop sustainable partnerships in a concerted effort to enhance academic and operational excellence. On Monday, November 20, 2017, Vice Dean, Dr. Yahya Asiri and Chairman, Dr. Munassir Alhamami, visited the English Language Institute (ELI) of King Abdulaziz University. Dr. Abdullah Al-Bargi, Dean of the ELI, welcomed our team and led them on an extensive tour of the Intensive English Program sharing best practices and commitments they have made to prepare their students for a challenging yet exciting future. At the end of the session, Dr. Asiri expressed his sincere gratitude to Dr. Al-Bargi for a very warm welcome and insightful tour. On Tuesday, November 21, 2017, Dr. Asiri and Dr. Alhamami completed the final leg of their tour with a visit to the College of Languages and Translation (COLT) of King Saud University (KSU). They were immediately greeted upon arrival by the Dean of the College of Languages and Translation, Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Mansour. Dean Al-Mansour explained that he believes it is really important for colleges to exchange visits in the Kingdom in order to share experiences and best practices. Following after, the teams traded views and jointly re-emphasized the importance of the exchange between the colleges in pursuit of augmenting the resources, services, and expertise available to faculty and students alike.
