There are a number of languages spoken in Egypt, but Egyptian Arabic (Maṣri) is by far the most widely spoken in the country. Coptic, the last stage of the indigenous Egyptian language, is used by the Coptic Orthodox Church.

Speaking Languages

The official language of Egypt is Standard Arabic and is used in most written media. Egyptian Arabic is the national and spoken language and is occasionally written. English and French are also widely spoken and used in business and educated circles.

Arabic came to Egypt in the seventh century, and Egyptian Arabic has become the modern spoken language of the Egyptians. Of the many varieties of Arabic, Egyptian Arabic is the most widely understood first dialect in the Middle East-North Africa, probably due to the influence of Egyptian cinema throughout the Arabic-speaking world.

A Bedouin Arab minority speaks a variety of Bedouin Arabic (Libyan Arabic and Bedawi Arabic) mostly in the Sinai Peninsula. Sudanese Arabic is also spoken by a number of Sudanese refugees.

Nubian language : In the Upper Nile Valley, around Kom Ombo and Aswan, there are about 300,000 speakers of Nubian languages, mainly Nobiin, but also Kenuzi-Dongola.
