The modern written Arabic is derived from the language of Quran. The Arabic alphabet is an abjad script written from right-to-left although the spoken varieties are sometimes written in ASCII Latin from left-to-right with no standardized forms.

Arabic has a very difficult writing system, many different dialects that make it hard to master it completely, and it's also extremely difficult to pronounce.
