7 Reasons Why You Should Learn Arabic
Learning Arabic in the first place and thinking it’s the best decision have ever made! The writing (and the language in general) was different, it thought a non-Arab would never be able to speak Arabic fluently. Yes, you CAN become fluent in Arabic if you are not of an Arabic origin. Not only that, personally think that if you are highly motivated, you can actually speak it and write it better than a lot of Arabs.
#1 Arabic is not a common language
Translating from Arabic into a European language is rather unusual. This means you have more value on the market. This also shows people personality traits such as perseverance, determination and tolerance, which helps building trust in your relationship with your clients.
#2 The writing is different from European languages
To me, this was the most enjoyable part of the Arabic learning process. When I started learning the Arabic alphabet, I felt like I was learning a coded language that no one else would be able to understand. It only takes a couple of days to learn how to read. People will tell you that it’s tricky because letters are written differently when they are at the beginning, the middle or the end of the word, but, to be frank, it’s not rocket science.
#3 Grammar is regular
Okay, I won’t consider this as a USP as many other languages are spoken in sunny countries, but having the possibility to learn a language without asking yourself “how is the weather gonna be tomorrow?” is quite appealing. Ladies, in most Arabic countries you can’t just walk on the street in a mini-skirt, but still, it’s better than walking in a rainy and windy city like London.
