Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) is the official Arabic language used in formal settings, classrooms, offices, courts, and media houses. MSA is a modern counterpart of classic Arabic and offers the foundation for learning different Arabic dialects. At Arab Academy, we teach standard, colloquial, and Islamic Arabic lessons. Our courses can help you get familiar with the Arabic alphabet, word construction, speech, and written forms.
