To familiarize one’s self to a foreign culture and customs is a challenge that most expats face in today’s ever expanding multi-cultural society. The UAE is no different and in fact is one of the most multi-cultural societies in the world. Living in a Muslim country and with Ramadan just around the corner, UAE expats need to educate themselves with the right knowledge to understand the sensitivities and customs that go hand in hand with the Holy Month and the Arabic culture.
Eton Institute, the largest language training and professional development centre in the UAE, has developed a free application for iPhone and IPad users to help them in understanding Ramadan, the customs, and the do’s and don’ts during the Holy month. Users would benefit from Daily phrases with Arabic translation and transliteration, useful cultural and Ramadan tips and a glossary of terms that are commonly used during the Holy month.
“With such a huge expat community it was inevitable for us to come out with an application that would help and educate expats about the Arabic culture and Ramadan. We are extremely excited to be the first to come out with such an application for IPhone and IPad users. The demand is huge to learn more about the Arabic culture and this application would be the perfect and most handy start to educating one’s self,” explained Moaz Khan, Marketing Manager at Eton.
