Awqaf min.: Ministry seeking to hone preachers’ foreign language skills

Awqaf Minister Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa asserted the ministry’s keenness on honing the skills of preachers and imams to disseminate the upright moderate teachings of Islam in several languages.

In a statement on Thursday, he said the ministry’s work program and the establishment of an Awqaf academy to train preachers aims at getting preachers to master foreign languages.

He noted that the academy will hold next week English level assessment exams for preachers to divide them into groups according to their levels.
