Al-Hasakah - SMART

Demand for learning languages has increased among youth ​​in Amouda city, 70 kilometers north of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria, in order to obtain jobs in foreign organizations located in the city, which is controlled by the Kurdish Autonomous Administration.

The director of the Akio Language Center, Jaffan Haj Shaker, told SMART that 400 people, including children, are learning English, German, French, Swedish and Russian, as well as learning computer programs.

Haj Shaker added that young people learn English and use computers at the request of organizations, which provide them with employment opportunities. Demands also increased from university students and seniors, who want to learn French after the opening of a French cultural center.

Haj Shaker also stated that there is little interest in learning Swedish. Only those people who have a "reunion" document allowing them to go from al-Hasakah to Sweden, where their families are now living, want to learn the Swedish language.

Student Alaa Mohammed indicated that she began learning English at the center six months ago so that she can increase her likelihood of securing a job.

Another trainee said that she works in an international organization but she wants to learn several foreign languages, ​​"as it has become essential for any job." Janda Haj Qassem said that she wants to learn English after all institutions she applied to work with set it as a requirement.

Recently, a number of international organizations in al-Hasakah have made the city of Amouda as their headquarters.

In early 2015, the Kurdish Autonomous Administration issued a curriculum in three languages ​​- Arabic, Kurdish and Syriac. The curriculums received mixed responses, with some in support of them, and others in opposition.
