If you’ve never seen Arabic before, you may be amazed by the beautiful script and the seemingly complicated structure of the sentence. If you’ve seen Arabic, you should recognize the beauty of each letter and how they work together to form words and sentences.


Arabic is a beautiful language and can be recognized for its unique alphabet. Did you know that approximately 420 million people speak Arabic? 


Arabic is known to be a popular language in the Middle East and North Africa, but it’s actually a more popular language than a lot of people realize. 


In this blog, we’re going to share all about the Arabic language. 


Who speaks Arabic?

Arabic is the sixth most popular language in the world. It is the official language in Egypt, Algeria, Jordan, and many others—25 countries claim Arabic as their official or co-official language.  


It’s important to note that people all over the world speak Arabic. Since it’s such a popular language, it’s no surprise that the 25 countries with Arabic as their official or co-official language aren’t the only countries where people are fluent in Arabic. 


What makes Arabic unique? 

There are a few things that make Arabic distinctly unique. 


Arabic is written in script, and it’s written right to left—unlike many languages. It’s also interesting to note that Arabic only has three vowels. 


Many people who know English and don’t know Arabic find it hard to learn Arabic because it uses a different writing system than language. There are 28 Arabic letters, and they differ depending on where they are located in a word. 


There are over 25 dialects in Arabic.


Arabic has influenced a large number of languages including European, Asian, and African languages. A few English words that have been influenced from Arabic include candy, sugar, and guitar.
