Who uses Arabic?
Native Arabic speakers, of course--but the spoken
and written languages are very different, and the
spoken language varies from country to country.
Muslims use Arabic for prayer and recitation of
the Quran, even though only 15-20 of Muslims
speak Arabic as their native tongue.
The Arabic script is used for many languages
besides Arabic, just as Latin script is used
for many languages besides Latin, like English!
Can you name other languages that use
Arabic script?
