MSU helmetArabic

An official language of the United Nations and in 22 countries, with an estimated 300 million native speakers, Arabic performs two functions: communicative and religious. Because it is the language of the Quran, more than a billion Muslims around the world use Arabic in some religious capacity. But, most important, young Americans learn Arabic because it is the key to cultural exchange and understanding.
