Moroccan Arabic Lessons

Moroccan Arabic, or darija, is widely considered the most difficult Arabic dialect to learn. But don't fear, our Moroccan Arabic lessons make darija clear even to beginning Arabic students.

We provide word by word translations and transcriptions of Moroccan TV shows and films, allowing students of all levels to learn by watching and listening to Moroccans speak darija naturally and authentically.

These lessons are designed for beginning, intermediate and advanced Arabic students who know the Arabic alphabet and basic Arabic grammar. No experience with Moroccan Arabic is necessary.
