Arabic is spoken by about 400 million people, is an official language in over 20 countries, and is one of the five most widely spoken languages in the world. Speakers of Arabic are in high demand. Knowledge of the language can help you in a government career, but it will also be of benefit in business and in industries such as engineering, medical, and in the non-profit and international relations sectors. Speaking Arabic can help you build relationships with business people in wealthy Middle Eastern countries like Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia.
