✅ Why should you learn Arabic?

Arabic (العربية) is a Semitic language, like Hebrew and Aramaic. Around 260 million people use it as their first language. Many more people can also understand it as a second language. It is written with the Arabic alphabet, which is written from right to left, like Hebrew. Since it is so widely spoken throughout the world, it is one of the six official languages of the UN, the others being EnglishFrenchSpanishRussian and Chinese.

Many countries speak Arabic as an official language, but not all of them speak it the same way. The language has many dialects or varieties, such as Modern Standard ArabicEgyptian Arabic, Gulf Arabic, Maghrebi Arabic, Levantine Arabic and many others. Some of the dialects are so different from one another that speakers have a hard time understanding the other.

✅ How long does it take to master Arabic?

In order to learn the communication phrases used by tourists in daily situations a couple weeks in the language course will suffice. However, if you want to master written and spoken Arabic more properly, you should allow one to three years. In order to achieve an academic level, you will need at least five to seven years.

With time and motivation you can master Arabic faster. The more time you dedicate to learning the language, the faster you will achieve the result. Daily communication in Arabic will be a great advantage. And do not forget the media (radio and television), press, cultural events, music, and films in Arabic.
