It is not used in schools, television nor newspapers, which usually use Standard Arabic or French instead, but is more likely to be heard in music if not just heard in Algerian homes and on the streets. Algerian Arabic is spoken daily by the vast majority of Algerians as a vernacular language, including those for whom it is not the native tongue.
