Arabic

Arabic language league flagArabic speakers are in greater demand than ever before. Both governmental and non-governmental organisations in the UK and all around the globe have declared Arabic as a key language for its relevant involvement in world affairs.

Arabic is the official language in 22 Arab countries. It is also the liturgical language of Islam, the faith of over 1.8 billion people worldwide. There is a whole spectrum of spoken Arabic dialects, with 350-400 million native speakers worldwide, of which the most common (90 million speakers) is the Egyptian dialect. There is, however, a single official written version of the language: Modern Standard Arabic or Literary Arabic.
