Learn more about Arabic

Arabic is an official language in most of the countries of the Middle East, North Africa and parts of East Africa. More than 290 million people call it their native language, and that number rises to more than 420 million when non-native speakers are included. Although 90 percent of the world's Muslims do not speak Arabic as their first language, they use it regularly in their religious life.

Most of the pyramids in ancient Egypt were built as tombs for pharaohs and their families. To date, more than 130 pyramids have been discovered there. The largest, the pyramid of Khufu at Giza, is made up of about 2.3 million stone blocks that weigh up to 15 tons each. It's thought that workers needed to set a new stone every two and a half minutes. Learn More

Why should you learn Arabic?

 

Interesting facts about the Arabic language

To an English speaker, learning Arabic can seem like a daunting task. The script is different—and written from right to left—and the linguistics of the speech patterns are sometimes uvular and seemingly impossible to master for Western tongues. So why take on the challenge? In fact, there are a lot of reasons why Arabic is a good language to learn.

Arabic is the fifth most-spoken language in the world.

If you're looking to expand your communication skills, Arabic is a language that you should definitely consider. After Mandarin, English, Spanish, and French, Arabic boasts over 200 million native speakers, and over 20 million non-native speakers throughout the world; many of whom learn Arabic in order to read the Koran in its original language.

Arabic speakers in the Western world are in high demand.

When it comes to business, non-native speakers of Arabic have a distinct advantage over those who don't speak the language. Among some of the fastest-growing economies are those of Arabic-speaking nations—including Libya and Iraq. There are, of course, many work opportunities in political, military, and humanitarian arenas for Arabic speakers, especially those who have mastered Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and are able to expand on that base by learning some of the many colloquial dialects and formal versus vernacular speech.

Rich cultural history will expand your world perspective.

Like with any language, studying Arabic is more than simply learning the language; if you learn Arabic, you'll learn about the history and culture of an ancient part of the world. One of the first things any traveler will see when arriving in the Arab world is the beauty of the architecture and design of public places. Due to the predominant Islamic faith, imagery that includes depictions of people and deities is not permitted. Instead, intricate patterns and vibrant geometric details that adorn public gathering places will leave any visitor dumbstruck—except to say "how lovely" in their new language.

The benefits of learning Arabic are innumerable. Of course those are subjective, but whatever the reason you're interested in learning the language, you're sure to broaden your horizons and open up new doors, both personally and professionally.
