Arabic is a language that is spoken in (official). Although the classical form of Arabic is taught in schools, Kuwaitis, like the rest of the Arab world, utilize the Kuwaiti dialect in daily speech. The English language is extensively used and spoken. The majority of traffic signs in Kuwait are multilingual. English is taught as a second language in Kuwaiti schools starting in the first grade. Many Kuwaitis speak English well since there are many private English and American schools and colleges where all courses are taught in English and Arabic is studied. Many Kuwaitis send their children to these schools.
