Modern Standard Arabic Program (MSA)
Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) is the modernized version of classical Arabic which is the language of the Noble Qur'an and all Arab religious texts.MSA is exactly the same across the Arab world as it is the official language of all Arab countries. There are no local varieties of Modern Standard Arabic and it is taught at Arab schools, colleges, and universities. It appears in written forms including in literature, books, media, newspapers, magazines, official documents and correspondence, etc. It is also heard in spoken formal forms including TV news and debates, speeches, government and parliament, conferences, seminars, summits, religious sermons and assemblies. Hence, if the student is targeting the written and official form of the Arabic language, Modern Standard Language is the best choice.
