There are several different languages spoken in Egypt. Listed below are a couple different languages the Egyptians speak; Arabic,Classic Arabic,Colloquial Arabic, Coptic, Nubian, Berber are several different languages. Arabic is the official language in Egypt that they speak. Classic Arabic is the official written language in books and poems in Egypt. Colloquial language is the official language for the street, both forms used for the media, business transactions, and schools.
Colloquial language is mostly seen on tv and used in songs. Coptic languages was used in ancient Egypt. Nubian is used by the Egyptians that live in the South. Berber is spoken by people of Siwa that live in and near the Libyan Desert. Some people can speak English, but they are well educated if they can.(Egypt 8). Almost all of Egypt’s population lives near the country-side.
Almost all of the other part of Egypt’s population lives in cities. The country-sides have villages that have thousands of small houses in these villiages. Each village usually has a mosque,and usually a few shops,a school,and usually a church. The country-side villages are usually along the Nile River. For a man, they wear a ankle length robe,called a Galabia and a Skullcap. The women wear dresses, with long sleeves and they sometimes cover their face. On special occasions women wear earrings, bracelets and necklaces.
Most of the women and men both work in the fields. Children take care of the donkeys and water buffalo. Children would also take care of goats and sheep if the family is wealthy. Their foods are bread, a bean dish called Ful, meat is reserved for special occasions. (Egypt 14).
The Nile River Valley is the best farming town. Cotton is the major crop industry in Egypt. Egypt also has some other important crops like rice,corn,wheat, beans, vegetables, and fruits. Egypt’s animals includes water buffalo, cattle,sheep and goats. Egyptian farmers depend on the Nile River to water their crops for the season. But at the same time Egypt is losing agriculture because of the cities populating and the sand in the deserts. The Nile River helps the farmers not to water their plants.
(Egypt 30).The longest river starts in Africa and goes through Egypt and ends into the Mediterranean Sea . It travels 3,000 miles in Africa until it goes through Egypt.
The longest river in the world is in Egypt and Africa called the “Nile River”. The Nile River goes northward and goes for about 900 miles. The Nile River flows through sandstone mountains.
The Nile River made Egypt expand at farming land and helped getting water. Egypt has some other rivers too, like the Cairo River, Rosetta River, and Damietta River. That Area is also known as the Delta and can be called Lower Egypt. The Cairo River flows into two rivers, the Rosetta river and the Damietta River.(Egypt 22) The Cairo is also a great city. The Cairo is the capital of Egypt and is a great city of Africa.(Rob Bowden and Roy Maconachie Page 1) Spence 3 In conclusion, people in Egypt use Agruclutre, launguage, religion and rivers in their daily lives.
Things like Agiculture,lauguage and rivers help them survive in life. These things make life easier and less stressful. In other words, Egyptis a pretty neat place to visit or even live. My clincher is “would you live there” Yes or No? I would not live there because all of the sand and deserts.
I would also not live there because the humidity. But there are some things that would make me live there like still farming. But farming and flooding means more weeding to do. I would live there too because there are still cities to get food and there’s a countryside there. I would also live there because the (Great Pyramids) are there. I could also find a rock that’s in graved that could be worth a lot of money.
I would also live there because there is the longest river (Nile River) is there. I would also live there because there would be a different culture there and you get to wear different clothes.
