That is a serious statement reflecting the actual situation of the Arabic language and culture within the mindsets of our children who are striving to be global citizens.As a language, Arabic is one of the greatest languages of the world.Arabic and its associated culture are both pertinent to the global landscape, yet Arabic is seriously threatened by globalizing forces that promote a simpler universal language and a digital world that is exponentially growing, imposing socio-political and economic changes.Providing innovative and comprehensive material for acquiring the Arabic language and culture is key for its revival in a fast growing high-tech world.That is Dar Onboz, an award winning publishing house that aims to produce books tailored to children and youth, introducing them to the world of Arabic culture and traditions while attracting them to the acquisition of the Arabic language in a very smooth, inspirational and artistic way.In another context, living in a "cyberworld" whereby everyone is interconnected with the whole world, gives us both a golden opportunity and a challenge, to not only survive but also promote and boost the spread of Arabic and Arab culture as a key for revitalization and global development.According to Arab Media Outlook, more than 60 percent of Arabic speakers favor internet browsing in Arabic since most don't speak English.
