ArabicThe Arabic script evolved from the Nabataean Aramaic script. It has been used since the th century AD, but the earliest document, an inscription in Arabic, Syriac and Greek, dates from AD. The Aramaic language has fewer consonants than Arabic, so during the th century new Arabic letters were created by adding dots to existing letters in order to avoid ambiguities. Further diacritics indicating short vowels were introduced, but are only generally used to ensure the Qur'an was read aloud without mistakes.There are two main types of written Arabic:

Arabic has also been written with the Hebrew, Syriac and Latin scripts.Notable Features

Facts and StatisticsLocation: Northern Africa, bordering the Mediterranean Sea, between Morocco and TunisiaCapital: AlgiersClimate: Arid to semiarid; mild, wet winters with hot, dry summers along coast; drier with cold winters and hot summers on high plateau; sirocco is a hot, dust/sand-laden wind especially common in summer.Population:
According to the census of , Arabic is the language of of Algeria's population; in addition to this, non-native speakers learn Arabic at school. In Algeria, as elsewhere, spoken Arabic differs very substantially from written Arabic; Algerian Arabic has a much-simplified vowel system, a substantially changed vocabulary with many new words and many words from Berber, Turkish, and French, and, like all Arabic dialects, has dropped the case endings of the written language. Within Algerian Arabic itself, there are significant local variations; Jijel Arabic, in particular, is noteworthy for its pronunciation of qaf as kaf and its profusion of Berber loanwords, and certain ports' dialects show influence from Andalusi Arabic brought by refugees from al-Andalus. Algerian Arabic is part of the Maghreb Arabic dialect continuum, and fades into Moroccan Arabic and Tunisian Arabic along the respective borders.
o Islam is practised by the majority of Algerians and to a certain extent still governs their personal, political, economic and legal lives. o Islam emanated from what is today Saudi Arabia. The Prophet Muhammad is seen as the last of God's emissaries (following in the footsteps of Jesus, Moses, Abraham, etc) to bring revelation to mankind. He was distinguished with bringing a message for the whole of mankind, rather than just to a certain peoples. As Moses brought the Torah and Jesus the Bible, Muhammad brought the last book, the Quran. The Quran and the actions of the Prophet (the Sunnah) are used as the basis for all guidance in the religion.
The Familyo The family is the most important unit of the Algerian social system and defines social relations. o The individual is always subordinate to the family or group. o The family comes above all else and we see this manifest in nepotism and the importance of honour.The Concept of Honour
o Honour is a foundation block of Algerian society.o Honour is delicately intertwined with a family's good name their reputation.o If someone is honourable, the family is honourable and if an individual is shamed the family is shamed. o As a result the behaviour of individual family members is viewed as the direct responsibility of the family.

Part of me is actually impressed. I think to myself: wow, in this post / world, here is this whole emerging generation that is so interested in this region, our culture, our tradition our language.
And then the other part of me thinks: damn, these guys are all going to go back to the US…And work for the CIA or NSA.[for further reference, see comment #]Filed under: Arab World, Culture, Jordan
Responses to “Learning Arabic In Jordan” Feed for this Entry Trackback Addresssaaleha on Sep nd, said:It’s been a bit of a trend for a while now for South African Muslims to study Arabic in Jordan.
I don’t know who these people work for now:)The husband and I have been kicking around the idea of doing an Arabic study stint in Syria next year.
Rob Richer on Sep nd, said:What’s the big deal ? A lot of people who are not American are working for the CIASimon Columbus on Sep nd, said:Well, I don’t think they’re all going to work for the CIA and NSA…(I’m learning Arabic myself, a child of the post / you may call me, and I’d rather starve to death then working for any of these organizations.)Nas on Sep nd, said:before i get jumped by any expats, i should point out that the observation is meant to be humorous and as lostwithin points out, partly poking fun of our conspiracy-theory state-of-minds.Um Omar on Sep nd, said:There are also those who are doing it to proselytize even though it is supposedly illegal in this country. I have met many of them and they are not too shy to admit it.
These jobs are hot and they pay a lot of money. One of the main reasons one may chooose to go for them is the big salary and benefits, it’s not necessary that they’re pro-war or pro-Bush or even pro-governmentabu daoud on Sep nd, said:As someone who is familiar with he folks you are talking about, my sense was that a lot of them were actually interested in humanitarian work–agricultural development, medical care, human rights–stuff like that.Not sure that it is so bad really. I don’t know a single one that went to work with the US gov’t–or any Western gov’t for that matter. In any case, wouldn’t it be good to have people working for the CIA who actually LIVED in the ME? But what MJWells said is true–which is sad, I think.
zaeem on Sep nd, said:i have bad news for you. this is interest is coming form intelligence agencies and not for the love of Arabic language or arab culture. the ongoing rate for a spy who speaks arabic and who is versed in arab “culture” is over , USD. of course spying is no longer limited to stunts but now includes cyber & telecom surveillance and media monitoring and old fashioned “development” work. so next time you are tempted to hug an international student who is studying Arabic, think again. same for those naive muslims who are impressed by the sudden surge in converts to islam post . DUH!!
sarah on Sep rd, said:I’m a fifth-year Arabic student, and I did in fact start out with some designs to work for the State Department…but after spending six months studying in the Middle East, talking to people and seeing the news from a different perspective I decided that the SD was no more innocent than the CIA or NSA, so I vowed never to work for any of them.
kinzi on Sep rd, said:Nas, you are inspiring a post for me with this topic. Lina, an Arabic tutor in Chicago makes $/hour. Fund your education! In Central Illinois, rural corn country if there ever was, Chinese has replaced German and Arabic is probably going to replace French in the government school system.Stephen on Sep rd, said:I studied Arabic this summer in Jordan.From what I saw, a lot of the students had Arab parents so either they or their parents felt the need to be able so speak Arabic. Then there was students who came as part of University course back in the U.S and were interested in learning Arabic for various reasons such as becoming translators in Iraq.
Nas on Sep rd, said:Yes Rob, that is exactly how I made it sound.In fact, I get paid in the field of million just to make it sound like that.I’m really that goodMommaBean on Sep rd, said:
Man, Nas, you ARE good. A million? How do I get THAT job? It’s funny that you and El atal have the exact same reaction. And, I tend to wonder the same when I meet Americans here whose husbands got a “scholarship” from an American governmental institution (I can imagine the strings attached to that money). I have also studied Arabic in Jordan (although clearly not the main reason I’m here) and think it’s an awesome place to pick. People from everywhere understand that accent which is a huge bonus. But, even we Americans wonder some times…
mo on Sep th, said:n a related story iris you are an idiot. but regardless i think you would like this videoyoutube/watch?v=MpwadsU&feature=relatedNas on Sep th, said:
Tanious: thanks for the video but it’s ironic that the message behind it is about tolerance, yet you don’t seem to be displaying any of it here. there’s no need to insult me just because you disagree with me.
thanksDean Peters on Sep th, said:Oh for cryin’ in the creek - is there anything American’s can do right?If people aren’t complaining that we’re a bunch of ignorant, one-language slugs - they’re complaining that we’re learning another culture to join the ranks of the CIA.
Adila on Nov th, said:OMG, I just actually READ the comments.zaeem, I don’t know where you live in this world, but as somebody who has lived the vast majority of my life inside the USA, I can tell you–before I left the country, I had never met a single Muslim. At least nobody that I knew was Muslim.No, seriously.I didn’t know the difference between Muslims/Islam. Seriously.
Not that I want to be all self-deprecating by pointing this out, but I want people like yourself to know that, while your suspicion is justified, and can be used to keep you safe and aware, it can also be divisive. Islam just became the most practiced religion in the world, ahead of Roman Catholicism ( to Islam’s ). So I just want you to know that the surge of reverts, in my opinion, has to do mainly with people hearing about Islam for the first time/having a reason to look into it.
