Over the course of time, the way people interact and function has changed. Previous generations were contempt with finishing their studies, finding a job, build their homes, and establish a family. Nowadays, more and more people are experiencing the feeling of wanderlust, preferring to experience more what the world has to offer them before they settle down.

The Arabic language is the 5th spoken language worldwide, with 422 million speakers. It massively contributed to the advancement of science, medicine, philosophy. It also played a great role in literature, mathematics, navigation, astrology, and architecture. Many scholars believed that in order to fully study the contributions Arabs made in those fields, it would be more than necessary to know the language as well. Furthermore, the Arabic language promotes unity and friendship in the Muslim world. Not all Muslims speak Arabic, as not all of them are located in the Middle East. But due to the Quran, all Muslims stand united, as the Holy Book is written only in Arabic.
Arabs take great pride in their language. And for good reasons! The Arabic language is rich in culture, highly diverse due to the dialects. Also, Arabs are very friendly. You will find great support and delight in the eyes of an Arab when they will hear your attempts to speak Arabic. The poetry is beautiful and diverse, trying to translate it in any other language will change its charm. Nelson Mandela used to say: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”
You might have heard that there are increasing job opportunities for non Arabic speakers, both in the Middle East and in the West. The Arab world is a fast-growing market for trade, either for goods or services. Also, the West requires Arab speakers, but there isn’t much supply of them. The Middle East started playing a more important role on the global market, which made the Arabic language of higher importance than before. The West is ready to compensate for the language skill and the Middle East appreciates non-natives that can offer the advantages of both the West and East.
