Free Travel guide Ooaj.com A free travel guide for holidays. Easy phrasebook to learn arabic Bed and Breakfast!


Arabic is the fourth most widely-spoken language in the world. It is spoken in many popular destinations in North Africa and the Middle East. There are many regional dialects, but a standard Arabic language is maintained due to religious needs and region-wide media.

Arabic is written from right to left. It has its own alphabet, different from the Roman alphabet used for English.

For communication purposes while travelling and using this guide, it is very important to note that Arabic is divided into Classic Arabic(mostly used in print) and Colloquial Arabic. Colloquial Arabic is furtherly subdivided into regional colloquial accents, the main regions being the LevantLevant, Persian Gulf StatesPersian Gulf States, Egypt, and North Africa. These regional colloquial accents differ enough to be mutually incomprehensible.

The pronunciation guide below uses Classical Arabic and Levantine Colloquial Arabic.
