أهلاً ومرحباً بكم في موقع برنامج الدراسات العربية – قسم الدراسات الإنسانية – بجامعة مونتانا. لقد بدأت جامعة مونتانا في تدريس اللغة والثقافات العربية قبل أكثر من عقد من الزمن، حيث شهدت ـ ومازالت تشهد - الجامعة ازديادًا ملموسًا لتعلُّم اللغة العربية وثقافات شعوبها.
في ربيع ٢٠١٢، تمت المصادقة على اعتماد اللغة العربية كتخصص فرعي في جامعة مونتانا. حالياً، يقدم البرنامج ثلاثة مستويات في اللغة العربية إلى جانب مواد تُقدم باللغة الإنجليزية عن تاريخ الدول العربية، وسياساتها، وثقافاتها، وما إلى ذلك من مواضيع.
Who Speaks Arabic?
Arabic is a southwest Semitic language that is spoken by approximately 300 million speakers around the world. It is spoken as the first language in all the countries of the Arabian Peninsula (i.e., Bahrain, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine/Israel, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates and Yemen) as well as in the Arab countries of Africa (i.e., Algeria, Djibouti, Egypt, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Somalia, Sudan and Tunisia). These countries are collectively referred to as the Arab world. Arabic is also used as a liturgical language in some countries of Asia (e.g., Iran, Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan) and Africa (e.g., Chad and Nigeria).
So, open your windows to the world and speak Arabic!
