2 Arabic : Today’s Arabic language is a descendant of the Classic Arabic language that was first spoken during the 6th century. This language is spoken in a broad range of territories, stretching from the Middle East to the Horn of Africa. However, there’s a big twist that makes this language quite difficult. The Arabic you might learn in a classroom might help you with reading and writing. However, when it comes to speaking with native speakers, it depends on where they are from. For instance, an Arabic speaker from Morocco might have a very difficult time understanding an Arabic speaker from Egypt.
