Oman: Useful phrases

Arabic is the official language across the peninsula, but English is widely understood. Road signs are often in both languages. Large numbers of immigrant workers also speak Urdu, Hindi and other languages of the Indian subcontinent. In the hotels and resorts ­almost everything is conducted in both Arabic and English. Although English is widely understood, and Arabic is an extremely complex language to master, it always helps to learn a few basic words and phrases.
