Why Learn Arabic Online
The Arabic language is a pillar of the cultural diversity of humanity. It is the 5th most spoken language in the world, used daily by more than 400 million people and considered a critical language by the U.S. State Department due to the U.S.’ strategic business and security interests in the Arab world. Arabic is one of the oldest languages in the world and the first written evidence of Arabic dates back to 512 AD. This makes it at least 1500 years old. It is the official language of 25 countries, making it very widespread in the Middle East and Northern Africa. It is also one of the 6 official languages of the United Nations, an organisation that even made December 18th Arabic National Day.
U.S. government agencies are seeking proficient Arabic speakers now more than ever. Learning Arabic won’t only get you ahead in a government career, but it will also give you a leg up in any industry in business, engineering, medical, nonprofit and international relations. Knowing Arabic can help you build valuable business relationships with business people in wealthy Middle Eastern countries like Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Currently, the demand in the U.S. for Arab speakers far exceeds supply.

The Arabic alphabet only contains 28 letters. There is no exact transliteration to English, only approximate pronunciations and sounds. It is impossible because there is only one vowel in the alphabet, the rest are consonants. Depending on the accents, pronunciation changes.
Moreover, there are many variations and dialects of Arabic. Some of them are Egyptian, Algerian, Moroccan, Sudanese, Saidi, Mesopotamian, and more. All have different pronunciations and variations, but the most widely spoken is Egyptian, by more than 50 million people.

Write In Arabic
Not all scripts share the same writing direction. Those languages that originated from Greek and Latin are written left to right, predominant for Western languages. But there are other very important writing systems. While Traditional Chinese or Japanese are written in columns, languages as Arabic, Hebrew or Farsi share another script and are written right to left.
وَتأتي علَى قَدْرِ الكِرامِ المَكارمُ
وَتَصْغُرُ في عَين العَظيمِ العَظائِمُ
عَلى قَدْرِ أهْلِ العَزْم تأتي العَزائِمُ
وَتَعْظُمُ في عَينِ الصّغيرِ صغارُها
Firm resolutions happen in proportion to the resolute,
and noble deeds come in proportion to the noble.
Small deeds are great in small men's eyes,
great deeds, in great men's eyes, are small.
– Al-Mutanabbī أبو الطيب المتنبي | Abbāsid Arab poet.
Excerpt from Sayf Al-Dawlah's Recapture Of The Fortress al-Hadath.
Translation by Geert Jan Van Gelder from Classical Arabic Literature: A Library of Arabic Literature Anthology.
