LEARN ARABIC LANGUAGE AT LANGMA SCHOOL OF LANGUAGES

“Welcome – أهلاً وسهلاً” 
Introduction 

Arabic language  ranks sixth in the world’s league table of languages, with an estimated 250 million native speakers in 22 countries. As the language of the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam, it is also widely used throughout the Muslim world. It belongs to the Semitic group of languages, which also includes Hebrew and Amharic, the main language of Ethiopia. It is one of the oldest languages in the world as it is the root of many languages.

Arabic is the official language of Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Western Sahara, and Yemen as well as one of the six official languages of the United Nations. In addition, it is widely spoken in countries such as Somalia and is the language of the holy writings of Muslims throughout the world.

Mainly there are three distinct forms in Arabic dialects namely Classical or Qur’anical Arabic, Formal or Modern Standard Arabic, and Spoken or Colloquial Arabic.

Classical Arabic – the language of the Qur’an – was originally the dialect of Mecca in what now Saudi Arabia is. This form is primarily learned for reading and reciting Islamic religious texts. An adapted form of this, known as Modern Standard Arabic, is used as a universal form of the language that can be understood by all and is commonly used in radio and TV news, broadcasts, films, plays, poetry, and conversation between Arabic-speaking people of different dialects including in international conferences. This formal or modern Standard Arabic is the official language of today’s Arabic world.

In order to understand the relationship between Modern Standard Arabic and Spoken Arabic which is the third form, it is important to understand the concept of ‘diglossia’. Charles Ferguson, the scholar who coined the term, says that diglossia (literally meaning “two tongues”) conveys a situation where, in addition to the primary dialects of a language, there is a highly codified form which is the vehicle of a large and respected body of literature. While Modern Standard Arabic is the definitive form of written Arabic there are many spoken Arabic dialects that vary from region to region in such a way that a Moroccan or Egyptian might have difficulty in understanding an Iraqi, even though they speak the same language.

Today, it is important to note that Arabic speakers are in greater demand than ever before. The U.S. State Department has named Arabic as a “critical language,” creating scholarships for language study in the U.S. and overseas. Every part of the world focuses on Arabian countries especially the new emerging ones as it has become a land of booming economy and new opportunities, which upholds the importance of Arabic speakers today.
