The Arabic Language Teaching Institute at Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University in Riyadh represents the leading role of Saudi Arabia in serving the Arabic language and culture as well as disseminating them all over the world.

The Institute, since it was established in 2013 till today, has graduated more than 1500 graduates from 55 countries around the world.
