It is true that almost everyone is taking French, Chinese, German, and Japanese languages as a second important language in middle school.
Nowadays, Arabic may however soon be the newest language to be in demand on young people’s foreign language curriculum, which is a good sign that its linguistic status and importance to the global world is rising.
Linguists believe that languages are living subjects that undergo development, evolution, and thus changes. However, the development and changes of every language may not always the same; a language may develop very fast, which would cause it to destroy its originality.
The Arabic language has seen rapid changes, which were created by influential factors such as media, and both written and audio-visual technology. As this language changes over time, people, including language students find it interesting to learn and to define its stands or importance in the future, globally.
Most language schools nowadays are offering the Arabic language as part of their courses. Learning Arabic is interesting and beneficial for anyone to learn. However, it takes a lot of work and encouragement in order to make the process of language Arabic learning complete and appropriate.
Arabic is one of most important languages of today, especially in international gatherings, like the United Nations. In addition, linguists believe that this is just the start of the Arabic language becoming important not only to Arabic markets, but also to Western countries. After the 9/11 attack and with the ongoing wars and conflicts in the Middle East, the Arabic language has been seen not only as a language but as an important tool or medium for peace and justice.
With growing Arab economies, foreign countries have seen giving importance to the stand-point of the Arabic language. Thus, people who learn to speak and write Arabic will lose nothing, but instead will gain a significant element to the future.
Languages develop and change for their own idiosyncratic reasons, however, the power of a language like the Arabic language will not be easily destroyed, if the speakers of this language itself are numerous and growing in numbers, guaranteeing the vital importance and contribution of this language to the lives of many people.
However, learning Arabic today doesn’t entirely mean automatically saving the future linguistic status of this language. Instead this will help create a positive future of the Arabic language not only to international businesses but also to the education of language students.
