Around 260 million people use Arabic as their first language and many others can understand it. Most Middle-Eastern countries list Arabic as the only or one of their official languages. Alongside English, Spanish, French, Russian, and Chinese, Arabic is one of the six official languages of the UN.
Arabic is the official language of many countries, but there are many dialects and some of the dialects are so different from each another that some speakers may have a hard time understanding one another. Countries where Arabic is an official language include Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Fun fact about Arabic: The Arabic alphabet is not an actual alphabet! One of the factors that makes Arabic distinctive is the fact that its ‘alphabet’ does not follow conventional writing systems and is known as an ‘abjad’. An abjad is a system of writing whereby each symbol represents a consonant but not a vowel. The vowels must be provided by the speaker using vowel marks. In addition, the Arabic language doesn’t follow Western reading norms… it reads from right to left!
