Posted July 21, 2020 12:50:08Lebanon has long been known as the birthplace of the modern state.
However, the country’s official language is English, which has been the official official language since 1982.
It was also the language of the United Nations and the European Union before that.
The government is considering changing the language to English, a move that would be welcomed by many Lebanese.
But the country is struggling with an unemployment rate of over 30 percent and a severe financial crisis.
The government has recently imposed a tax on non-essential items, and some businesses have also been closing.
While the country does not have an official language in its national register, the official state language is Arabic.
The country’s Ministry of Education and Higher Education, which is part of the government, plans to use Arabic to teach classes in the next few years.
Lebanese authorities also want to introduce English-language schools, with the goal of improving Lebanon’s international standing.
The plan is to start a public charter school that will be open in the country, said Minister of Education Mohammad Ghassan.
While there is a desire to adopt English in Lebanon, there is not yet a clear plan for the country to do so.
A number of countries in the Middle East, including Egypt and Turkey, have English-only schools, and the countries of Saudi Arabia and Jordan have English only schools.
There are no plans to adopt an official state-sponsored language in Lebanon because of the country-wide economic crisis, said Hamdi Abdel-Hamid, a Lebanese-American citizen who teaches at a local school.
There are plans to develop an English-as-a-second-language program in Lebanon but this is still in its early stages, he said.
Labani Al-Khatib, a professor at the American University of Beirut who studies the language and culture of Lebanon, said there is no need to adopt a second language in order to teach students English.
“English is not a necessity, it’s a good idea,” he said, adding that many Lebanese are more comfortable with their own language than their Arabic.
He said there are several reasons why a country could choose to change its official language to a language other than English.
It could also help to educate Lebanese citizens to improve their English skills and improve the countrys image abroad.
“In the long run, this is going to improve the image of the Lebanese people, so it will benefit the country,” he added.
Al-Katib, who also teaches Arabic at the university, said it would help the Lebanese community to speak the same language as the government.
He also pointed out that the English language is the most widely spoken language in the world, and it is an easy way for English-speakers to communicate with each other.
Al Katib said the government’s plan to adopt Arabic as its official state tongue is the first step in this direction.
He also said the country could do more to support English-medium schools and universities.
“We need to make it easier to speak English, especially in Lebanon,” he explained.
“It is a language that is used by millions of people.”
