Speak Moroccan or dialectal Arabic

Our qualified teachers will teach you the Moroccan dialect and make you discover Morocco and its people.

Why speak Moroccan, the darija ?

The Moroccan spoken tongue can vary from one region to the next. A lot of words sound similar but certain have particularities and language specificities.

There are also several dialects : the “riffi”, the “berber”, the “darija”… There is a great explanation on Wikipedia for those who want more information.

At the Tangier Institute we teach the “darija”. Speaking Moroccan will allow all of those that want to move to Morocco a better integration wether in a mundane or a professional context.

The Moroccan dialect is the language of the people. Even if people use literary Arabic for their studies, the language of the street is definitely Moroccan!

Dialectal Moroccan Arabic : easy or hard ?

Dialectal Arabic is not a written language, rather a spoken one.

Learning it is therefore easy, and the best way to learn it quickly is total immersion.

Being immersed in Morocco will allow the student to practice what they have learned and their progress will be even faster!
