Arabic is spoken by more than two-hundred sixty million people throughout the world and is the main language of most of the Middle East. An important thing to keep in mind when traveling to Arabic speaking countries is that each region has a different Arabic dialect that may or may not be understood in a different region. Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) is the Arabic dialect that stands out and is generally understood but may be considered “too formal” to use.
Arabic is becoming an important language when it comes to operating a international business that’s trying to break into foreign markets. Learning Arabic opens up many employment possibilities in a number of different industries such as oil, travel, fiance, and translation to name a few.
