Arabic

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

Arabic is spoken by more than 280 million people as a native language.

This makes it the fifth (or fourth if Hindi and Urdu are counted as one language) most widely spoken language of the world. Being able to talk to that many people is definitely a huge motivation.

Arabic is cool.

Not many Westerners speak Arabic and having some command of the language will immediately make you appear extremely sophisticated and clever in the eyes of many.

Arab culture is rich and diverse.

Everybody should be able to find some aspect of the culture that they find intriguing.

Travelling in the Middle East.

The Arab World is a great place to travel – if you know Arabic, that is. While the number of Arabs speaking English is constantly on the increase, the vast majority of the population only speaks Arabic. So it is essential that you speak at least basic survival Arabic when you travel in the region. And travelling there is certainly something that you shouldn’t miss with lush countryside, arid deserts and traditional villages
