Classical Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and Colloquial Arabic
Today, there are three types of Arabic commonly used around the world: Classical Arabic-also known as Standard Arabic or Quranic Arabic-, Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and Colloquial Arabic. Classical Arabic is based on Arabic spoken in medieval times and is used in Islamic religious ceremonies as well as the Quran. Modern Standard Arabic is commonly taught in university and is used by media outlets as well as in formal situations such as academic conferences and diplomatic settings. Colloquial Arabic, in contrast, varies greatly in terms of specific vocabulary both within and between countries due to the impact of historical and cultural development.
