Bahrain is a group of thirty-three islands that collectively make up a land area of 707 square kilometers. It is located in the Arabian Gulf just off the east coast of Saudi Arabia. The state is named after the largest island (Bahrain). This island is linked via a causeway to the international airport situated at Muharraq. Most of the remaining thirty-two islands are very small and uninhabited except for the migratory birds that use them as resting spots during the spring and autumn seasons. Though the official language of Bahrain is Arabic, most business concerns use English and it is also well understood generally.
