Teachers are going to be expected to teach Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to their students next year, so Bibliotheca Alexandrina are offering classes to give them a head start.
CairoScene recently announced the news that Egyptian schools are going to be teaching hieroglyphics. Now, Bibliotheca Alexandrina is collaborating with the General Administration of General Education to launch training programmes to teach hieroglyphics to the teachers.
The programme is catered to grade four social studies teachers, who will be introducing this new curriculum into the Egyptian system starting next September. The programme will help teachers study and explain simple hieroglyphs, how to read the names of kings and nobles, and the basic grammatical constructs on which the ancient Egyptian language is based.
