Arabic is a language belonging to the Afro-asiatic family which is spoken in a wide arc stretching across Western Asia, North Africa and the Horn of Africa. It is spoken by as many as 420 million speakers (native) in the Arab world, which makes it one of the six most-spoken languages in the world. There are two main types of written Arabic: Classical Arabic – which is the language of the Qur'an and classical literature and which differs from Modern Standard Arabic mainly in style and vocabulary; Modern Standard Arabic is the universal language of the Arabic-speaking world which is understood by all Arabic speakers and which is used in written material and on formal TV shows, lectures, etc. Arabic is the official language of the 22 countries which form the Arab League: Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen. However, the written language is radically different from the various dialects spoken throughout the Arab world. The differences are so great that some of the dialects are mutually unintelligible, which leads many to consider them as different languages. With our team of experienced, bilingual

The Arabic script evolved based on the Nabataean Aramaic script. Apparently, it has been used since the 4th century AD, but the earliest document, an inscription in Arabic, Syriac and Greek, dates from 512 AD. The language is written in horizontal lines from right to left, but numerals are written from left to right. There are a number of 28 letters in Arabic.
