    Re: "LANGUAGE: Algerian"

    Official languages Arabic[3]
    Other languages
    • Tamazight[4] (constitutionally national)
    • French (business and education)[4]
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algeria
    Should I write Arabic, French, and Tamazight or the official one?

    Re: "LANGUAGE: Algerian"

    Should you write what where?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I don't suppose that any of us know more than what the Wikipedia article says. We are English teachers, after all, not scholars of Arabic or African languages.

    Agreed. It also names 'Brazilian' and 'Indian' as languages.

    Re: "LANGUAGE: Algerian"

    It also claims that the language of Argentina is Algerian.

    It is basically gibberish. 5jj is right- delete the file and free up the space on your hard drive.
