History of the Arabic Language:
Arabic is spoken by around 200 million people in more than twenty countries worldwide. It is also the language of the Quran (the Holy book for Muslims). Arabic is thought to have originated in Saudi Arabia in pre-Islamic times, and spread across the Middle East since then.

Many modern languages contain words of Arabic origin including Indian, Turkish, Iranian, Portuguese, Greek and even Spanish. Spoken Arabic dialects vary from country to another.

However, although the classical written Arabic is understood among all Arab countries. there is a distinction between classical Arabic and Modern Standard Arabic (MSA). Classical Arabic is the language of the
Quran and old texts. MSA is the language used in newspapers and TV news.

MSA is based on classical Arabic and is more or less 'standard' across Arab countries, yet it does have many differences from it not only in its lexicon but also differences on the syntactic level.

The distinction between classical Arabic and MSA is quite clear and is not only kept for specialists. Advertised courses often refer to whether it's MSA, classical or colloquial Arabic they are delivering.
