But did you know that you already use Arabic on a daily basis? Probably not. Arabic is used in many of the world’s languages, and you find traces of it in your everyday life without even realising it. In the following sentence, for example, “I need to drink coffee before my chemistry exam”, “coffee” comes from the Arabic word قهوة qahwa and “chemistry” from كيمياء kimia!
Arabic (العربية al-arabiyya) is a member of the Central Semitic language family, which includes Hebrew, Aramaic and Phoenician. The language has a long and rich history, with over hundreds of millions of native speakers around the world. The majority of these speakers are found in North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and the Middle East, a region known as the Arab world.
Interestingly, Arabic is spoken differently in each country where it is used. Each of these countries has its own spoken version of Arabic, with its own accent and peculiarities. The Arabic spoken in North Africa, for example, is quite different from that spoken in the Gulf States. Arabic speakers all have their own dialect, but most of them also learn Modern Standard Arabic as their first official language.
