What The World Cup Can Teach Us About Creating Social Union
The sentiment of the football fanbase is so strong and influential that it can bring people together. The FIFA World Cup event has forged global relationships since it started in France in July 1930.
Those who have Football running through their veins are thinking about each championship, who will be the winner, and rooting for their favorite team. Even non-fans begin to feel the energy of the season, witnessing how Football can unite people regardless of their culture, language, or origin.
Indeed, countries will have to face each other with the hopes of earning the much-coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy. At the same time, this sporting event can pave the way in drawing people across countries closer than ever. And in the process, we are discovering the world and opening our minds to other people’s delightful cultures.
It is the moment for Qatar to host one of the most significant events of the centuries. For the first time, the World Cup will be hosted in a magical, modern, and breathtaking Middle East country. A country that, for many people, is still an unfamiliar place with so many incredible facts to learn and discover, including the language.
It’s the opportunity for Qatar to not only have people united for a common shared interest but also showcase their country’s highlights, culture, and beautiful language. There are countless secrets for you to find about Qatar that are worthy. A journey through this land will leave you mesmerized.
The Power Of Football In Culture And Language Learning
The World Cup is the perfect opportunity for people to bond through the language of sport. As we know, learning languages is a vital part of human connection. While learning a new language, we also gain valuable insights into other cultures, which in turn, helps us understand and interact with people better.
But why does this sport have the power to create union and increase cultural and language awareness?
During the FIFA World Cup events, we can see how people make an effort to learn about the culture and language of the host country to remove communication barriers.
From the organizers and staff of the sports event to the Football teams, and finally, the fans who travel all the way to see the most exciting matches in the world, they all learn the language and culture of the host country.
The World Cup can indeed create a big impact on language and culture learning. It demonstrates that society can become so close by one common share.
Why Should You Learn The Arabic Language?
Languages are the bridges that we have to create opportunities. After talking about how Football can unite us and how language learning can bring us together with no communication barriers to face, we must also state how learning languages makes us have strong innovative thinking.
We can build environments where people feel more valued by talking to them in their language.
Not only that, but we can also expand into the world, into new possibilities and peaceful social interactions. People who have learned a new language often talk about how beautiful and insightful it is to be able to communicate with others in their native languages. It feels as if they are living a second life. And it is indeed a powerful emotion for someone who has experienced it.
Some might think that since Qatar has a high percentage of English speakers, those attending the World Cup don’t necessarily need to learn the official language, Arabic. However, we believe they couldn’t be further from the truth.
If you see an opportunity to learn Arabic from this event, go ahead and leverage the motivation! No matter if you are traveling to Qatar or not. You never know when you will be able to connect with people who speak this magnificent language.
Did you know that Arabic is the world’s fifth most spoken language, with nearly 500 million speakers?
Perhaps you want to involve yourself even more in culture while traveling throughout other Middle Eastern, where Arabic is also the official language.
Even the FIFA official website has provided some basic words and phrases in Arabic for people who will fly from their countries to enjoy the World Cup. Even though English is well-spoken across the country, learning Arabic will bring you higher experiences in your travels.
In addition, if you are planning on going to Qatar for the World Cup, besides learning Arabic, there are some important facts about the country and the rules you should know as a tourist.
