Modern Standard Arabic is the classical Arabic, also known as Fusha (الفصحى). Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) the 5th most spoken language in the world, one of the United Nations’ sixth used language and a crucial asset for your career and ambition if you are planning to engage with the MENA region.
Why Learn Modern Standard Arabic?
Mainly used to communicate formally, media, meeting with Arabs from a different country, administration, learning MSA is central for individuals working in the Middle-East, university researchers, or students with a focus on the Arab world.
Think of MSA as the building block for all of the Arabic dialects. By learning it, you'll be able to communicate with almost anyone in the Middle East as it's universally understood by Arabic speaking people even if they don't speak it back themselves.
Almost every school in the Middle East teaches MSA to its students, as it's deeply rooted in the Arabic culture and identity. If you're looking to advance your career, whether academically or professionally, in the middle east as a whole, then we'd highly advise you to start your Arabic learning journey with MSA.
You'll also benefit greatly from learning MSA if you're taking a trip across the different nations of the Middle East.
