Video: Overview of the Arabic Language (عربى)

Arabic language video

The lowdown on Arabic

In this video, Paul gives a great overview of Arabic including its history, where it is spoken (global distribution), the evolution of its writing system, an overview of how the language works, what other languages have influenced it, what regional varieties exist and much more.

Paul includes example samples of the Arabic language to illustrate the main points of how the language works - super helpful for folks just getting started and interesting in general for language geeks like me.

Words from the videographer

This video is all about the Arabic language, from its early origins on the Arabian peninsula, to its current status as the 5th most spoken language on Earth. I also examine a number of features of Arabic and analyze numerous examples.

How many Arabic speakers are there?

Arabic is spoken - in all its forms combined - by as many as 422 million people across Africa and the Middle East.
