Saida
The official language is Arabic, but the “spoken Arabic” (a Lebanese dialect) differs from the “written Arabic”, common to all Arab countries. But in general the Lebanese speak French or English and frequently they speak both languages.

An interesting fact is that in some cities, particularly in the Beqaa Valley, the Portuguese language is almost fluently spoken, which shows the significance of the migration, especially to Brazil, and the culture exchange between both countries – many people went to Brazil, and later returned to Lebanon and shared cultural elements, such as language, cooking and habits. In addition to these languages, many Lebanese also speak Spanish, Italian and German, among others.
