As the official language of the UAE, Arabic language plays a large role in day to day life here. Whilst having the ability to speak or write Arabic is far from essential here, for non-native speakers of the language it could really set you apart in business and really help you to impress or work with some of the senior companies and government bodies here. As with all languages there are many dialects, but actually the common one for the region is simply Gulf Arabic and this will not only support you here in the UAE but through the wider Arab World too. Add Arabic to your repertoire and seriously boost you career.
Once you have brushed up on your spoken arabic skills and reached a high level of fluency, be sure to check out our Arabic Speaking jobs to see the current vacancies in the UAE.
