Arabic is the official language of over 20 countries and it has nearly 30 million native speakers. These speakers are largely concentrated in North Africa and the Middle East, but there are minority groups of native speakers throughout the world. It is an official language of the United Nations, the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Conference, and the African Union. There is a demand for experts with Arabic language in the government, consular services, international NGOs, media and business.
