With the UAE’s 40th National Day nearing, Eton Institute, UAE’s largest language training provider, supported by Dubai Knowledge Village, will be holding a free educational workshop for the public titled ‘Spirit of the UAE’. This community workshop will give expatriates the opportunity to increase their knowledge about the UAE’s heritage, culture and the local language. It will also include a traditional coffee ceremony and an interactive question and answer session.
Moaz Khan, Marketing Manager of Eton Institute said, “UAE is a nation with a rich heritage and culture, which has been the very foundation of its success in modern times. The ‘Spirit of the UAE’ workshop will take the old and the new together to give attendees a complete insight into the UAE and its customs and traditions. It’s a great way to show your national spirit and gear up for the momentous 40th National Day.”
