The list of countries where Arabic is the main language is very long - stretching from Morocco and Mauritania in the west to Iraq and Oman in the east. Arabic has hundreds of millions of speakers, and is the language not only of high and religious culture but also popular culture. You can watch X Factor and other talent shows in Arabic - beamed across the Arabic-speaking region. You can also learn Arabic here - it's taught in our schools and universities. It's available via distance mode or after hours through the Victorian School of Languages . There are also a number of Community Language Schools that teach Arabic. Adults can learn Arabic at university level or through the CAE which offers short courses at different levels.
