Arabic dialects

Arabic is spoken in many countries but every region has a different dialect, does anyone know which dialect is taught in this course?

It's not a dialect. It's Modern Standard Arabic, MSA, the lingua franca that everyone knows, at least knows how to write in.

It's MSA... nobody speaks MSA.

Everyone understands MSA. And people practice their religion in MSA. They write in MSA. They study in MSA.

    Honestly, based on knowledge of Arabic, I would say there is little bit of Egyptian and Levantine dialect, but mostly Modern Standard Arabic.
