Arabic

Introduction


One of the most prominent languages of the Middle East is Arabic. It is spoken by an estimated 260 million people across the world. Arabic is the most common language in countries like UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. It is a known fact that many people work in the gulf countries where Arabic is the primary language. By knowing Arabic, it makes it easier to communicate and interact with people at the workplace. The Holy Book of Muslims, which is the Quran is also written in Arabic, which is why the people who speak Arabic give it prime importance. They believe it is the language by which they can communicate with the Almighty. Arabic is taught to children who study in all these gulf countries where learning this language is compulsory. However, in other parts of the world also Arabic is gaining importance as a second language. Students who want to look for Job opportunities abroad choose Arabic is their second language because it would give them enough time to study the basics of the language so that they can settle down and get accustomed easily in the future. Learning Arabic is completely different compared to all other languages in the world. Unlike normal languages where words are written on a page from the left hand side starting from the margin, in Arabic words are written from the right side which is exactly opposite to the traditional nomenclature of writing. This makes it a little difficult to write and read this language, although speaking is a far easier task.

To learn any language, you must start from the basics like grammar, sentence formation and pronunciation. The levels of learning a language are based on the proficiency developed by the learner after which he is given a beginner, intermediate or expert level certificate. Learning Arabic is quite different from other foreign languages which are why there are no prescribed levels for the same or certification courses. However, Arabic learning has to be done in a very systematic manner. It does take some time to gain some expertise in this language, but it is not an impossible task. The more you can find time speaking to native Arabic speakers or listen to their conversations, the more it will be helpful in learning this language. You can gain a fair amount of experience by listening to Arabic news or reading book that are written in Arabic so that you can accustom yourself with new words.

Learning Arabic is of great importance because Gulf countries have abundant job openings. They have worked for all types of qualifications which is why you will find people of various academic skills working in the gulf countries. Countries like UAE and Saudi Arabia are famous for their oil wells and jobs related to oil industries. The biggest oil company in the world, Saudi Aramco has thousands of people working there round the clock. There is a need for skilled engineers and technicians for various jobs. When such companies look for employees, they will always give priority to those who can converse in the local language which is Arabic. This makes it easier to communicate with the workers. From construction sites to oil refineries, there is a need for people who are highly educated. The local natives of these gulf countries are Arabic speaking, which is why it is so important to learn Arabic so that interacting with them is a lot more convenient. If you learn Arabic you can give instructions to your subordinates in that language. It will make the work easier and help in developing a rapport with them, which will help in the overall business and smooth working of the company.
