Arabic

Reading and writing in Arabic is difficult for someone with a non-Arabic background. This is because the writing differs considerably. Arabic grammar also differs from most Western languages. The grammar of the Arabic language is often more extensive. When you have mastered the alphabet a bit, writing and reading can be learned faster. Arabic is also difficult for Arabs because the short vowels are not shown in most texts.

Arabic is spoken by around 240 million people worldwide. It is spoken in countries such as Egypt, Israel, and Yemen. The Arabic language is a Semitic language. The Koran is written in Arabic and is therefore seen as the mother tongue of the Islamic world.
