Popular language learning app Duolingo announced today that Arabic is now available as a selectable course via the company's apps and on the web.

The company stated that Arabic was one of the most-requested languages to be added, with nearly 250,000 signing up to be alerted of its availability.

Users will be taught a less formal, spoken version of Modern Standard Arabic, which can be used in a conversation and can be used with the widest range of Arabic speakers.

The course will be available on iOS, Android, and the web (course page here) starting today.
