The Modern Standard Arabic Language
Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), also known as Standard Arabic or Literary Arabic, is the variety of Arabic used in writing and in formal speech. MSA is spoken by an estimated 300 million people world-wide. It is one of the six official languages of the United Nations. Modern Standard Arabic is the official language of all Arab countries, and is the only form of Arabic taught in schools at all levels. Because of this, MSA is the lingua franca of all educated Arabic-speakers, regardless of nationality or spoken native dialect. It is used in the news, schools, official documents, and courts of law. MSA bears great resemblance to Classical Arabic; the language of ancient poetry and the Qu'ran. The Arabic alphabet contains 28 basic letters and is read from right to left.

It has been fun. Some words I would like to see the spelling, but I am learning faster than with Rosetta Stone. I listen and practice while I drive.

    Comments about Pimsleur Arabic (Modern Standard) Conversational Course - Level 1 Lessons 1-16 CD:

    This program is amazing. In two weeks, my ability to speak the language progressed more rapidly than in nine moths of study in another well known program. I highly recommend it for anyone. I actually look forward to my next lesson, and take pride in my progress.

    Pimsleur is light years ahead of its competitors, in terms of being able to speak fluently É If I could give you more stars on your rating chart, I would love to.
