    no country speaks standard Arabic even the Arabian countries each one has its own accent and use different words sometimes

    but when we talk standard Arabic we all can understand each other

    we learn standard Arabic at school and use it when writing and when reading

    ^ actually the Qur'an is written in Classical Arabic, not Modern Standard Arabic (MSA is a more modern version of classical Arabic)

    anyway as Pinky said....no one in Arab countries goes around speaking Standard Arabic in their daily lives. Iraqis have their own dialect of Arabic, Lebanese have theirs, Egyptian, Palestinian etc. Ok, Standard Arabic is formal. All Arabs know it because they get taught it in school, it is our national language you know and then all the dialects branch off from it. As I said in the previous question, it is used in newspapers, books, formal speeches...that kind of thing.

  • there's no such thing, but in the middle east, they are closer to the 'standard arabic'

    in north africa, they have their own dialect wich is very hard to understand by the rest of arabs, but the 'standard arabic' is the language used in writing in all arabic countries including north africa, so this is why it is understood by all arabs (also the Coran is written in standard arabic)

    nowhere

    it's a language taught at school, so you need at least completing elementary school to have it's basics, using it fluently is another matter.

    Some countries achieved high literacy rates, so you can expect a large proportion of people to be able to use MSA.
