Learning Arabic in Dubai comes with many benefits, which is why we recommend heading to The Arabic Language Centre and trying their adult courses and FREE trial class!
Language is certainly more than a set of rule-governed words put together to deliver certain messages. It is, in fact, the main medium of human communication and interaction.
It's also the key to culture, and upon learning a new language, we decode the values and ideals that the language embodies. As a result, we are able to bridge gaps and develop a deeper understanding of other cultures.
That's not all - learning a new language comes with many benefits, among which is opening the door wide to a world of opportunities on a social as well as professional level.
What's the native language of the UAE?
Arabic is the native language of Dubai and the UAE. And in this part of the world, learning Arabic i.e. the official language of the region, is particularly advantageous, given the importance linked to human relationships.
The acquired linguistic knowledge, coupled with a good sense of cultural sensitivity, helps non-Arabic speakers interact appropriately and develop healthy social and business relationships in multiple contexts in the Arab World.
In addition to the above gains, Arabic is an inherently beautiful and rich language, with more than a thousand-year-old history that has impacted many other languages. Arabic is one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is the fifth most spoken language in the world, with over 300 million native speakers.
