More about Arabic Skills

The Arabic language

Learning the Arabic languageIn recent times, economic and world political events have increased awareness of the Arabic language, and have helped open up a world of opportunity for anyone considering studying Arabic.

While learning Arabic requires diligent study, it can open exciting career opportunities for successful students. Once you have achieved a good level of Arabic, possible employment options could include freelance translating, translating for bodies such as the UN, international banking posts or teaching and research positions.

Arabic requires students to learn how to read and write in a script that is totally different from our familiar Latin script. Additionally, Arabic has many different forms and dialects, requiring dedication and commitment when learning Arabic. Learning Arabic successfully means becoming familiar with at least two of these dialects: one of the colloquial forms used in everyday settings in Arab speaking countries and Standard Modern Arabic, the language used in formal situations.

Working in an Arabic speaking country

Business in an Arabic speaking countryThe academic Arabic field is rich and varied, however, learning Arabic also has definite benefits in some surprising uses as the Middle East represents billions of dollars worth of commerce, trade and mineral exportation.

Being able to speak Arabic, and in particular Modern Standard Arabic, is considered a bonus for major corporations that have presences in the Middle East. Interpreters are used and relied upon in all aspects of business, from contract negotiation to the resolution of worker disputes.

If working in an Arabic speaking country, a grasp on the Arabic language will help you speak to people on the streets and shops, as well as helping understand some of the literature.

Arabic language courses come in different forms, matching the vast range of communication possibilities.

Learning a foreign language or improving your command of a foreign language can open many doors, at any level, for many careers. As technology shrinks the world and brings international business partners closer together, speaking more than one language becomes even more valuable.

Arabic through history

Arabic language studyThe Arabic language spread throughout the Mediterranean, Europe, Asia and Africa by the conquering Muslim armies in the beginning in the 7th century AD. The Arab armies brought Islam and by extension, Arabic, to millions of people in the centuries following their conquests.

Arabic has since filtered into European languages, with Arabic-derived words appearing in mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, the military, mythology and legends, and in common colloquialisms.

As the language of the world's second-largest monotheistic religion, forms of Arabic are spoken by more than a billion people worldwide.
