Our Arabic courses abroad have grown in popularity over recent years and the impetus to learn Arabic as a second or third language has increased. As the language of Qu’ran, the Holy book of Islam, Arabic is the most widely spoken language of the Muslim world. Originating in Saudi Arabia in pre-Islamic times, Arabic spread rapidly across the Middle East and is now spoken by some 200 million people in more than 22 countries worldwide, from Morocco to Iraq and Jordan, and as far south as Somalia and the Sudan. The Arabic language today has many regional dialects but if you enrol on one of our Arabic courses and take the time to learn Arabic, you’ll be introduced to a vast number of fascinating people and cultures the world over.
With the growing importance of the Middle East in international affairs there is a shortage of employees in the West who are versed in Arabic language and culture, and many western nations consider Arabic a language of strategic importance. Therefore those who study Arabic can find often stand out and find a career in a variety of fields such as journalism, business and industry, education, finance and banking, the foreign service and intelligence. The Arab region, with its rapidly growing population, also provides a huge export market for goods and services and has a GDP of 600 billion dollars annually.
