IB Arabic A: Nature of the Subject
Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, currently spoken by over 300 million. Whilst predominantly spoken by people from the Middle East and North Africa (and immigrants from these countries), the demand for the language is rising due to the growing importance of the Middle East in international affairs as well as the large increase in the Muslim population, whose main language is Arabic.
