Standard Arabic is understood by most of the people belonging to the
Arab community, who in general terms are able to speak the language to an acceptable level: this is not surprising, as standard Arabic is used for written communications, it is the language of the Koran, the education system, public institutions and the media. Egyptian Arabic, an oriental dialect with Maghrebi traits, is also understood by a great number of
Arabs, above all due to the enormous success and prestige associated with the
Egyptian film, television and music industries.
