Arabic is really difficult in comparison to Spanish but I would say more useful and a more beautiful sounding language.

For fun tbh. I want to learn both to be honest... but during Summer I want to learn one or the other.
I will become a Dietitain in the future so any language would be beneficial really as u come across different ppl

Go with Arabic. Spanish is overrated Or just learn Arabic this summer, work on it for a year and then learn Spanish next summer.

If you aren't already familiar with the Arabic letters, start of with Spanish.

It's quite subjective.

Arabic is difficult in my opinion. I've heard it all my life and still have broken Arabic.
Spanish is supposedly very easy, so is more realistic to learn a lot over the Summer.

That being said, I think that, if you were to commit yourself to Arabic, it would be more rewarding, as you can speak with way more people and the culture is more different.

(And yes, Arabic does sound nicer in my opinion (depending on the dialect), not that Spanish isn't nice itself or anything.)

It may actually be feasible to learn them both at once, there's a not insignificant amount of overlapping vocabulary, and the languages are different enough that you would be able to avoid confusing them.

You think so? I am sure it is best to focus on one language at a time tbh

It really depends on how much else you plan to do in the timeframe, for example I'm planning to learn Russian and Farsi (Persian language with some similarities to Arabic) over this summer, although I don't expect I'll get past ~GCSE level standard in that time.

Arabic is less useful to learn than you'd think. The dialects vary so widely from each other and from standard arabic (which is usually only spoken on a daily basis by academics) that many of them are not even mutually intelligible.

From what I've heard and read, English is the language of business in the prosperous Gulf states, and French is the language of business in most of North Africa.
