Learn Moroccan: Useful Phrases in Moroccan Language for your Holidays to Morocco

When travelling in Morocco, learning a few words in the local language can be a real bonus. For a starter, not all people understand English and as such you could get your message across better. More importantly, people will treat you differently: they will be more open, friendly and will go out of their way to help you out.

In Morocco, most people speak French, so if you know the language of Voltaire you’ll be able to get by almost anywhere. Spanish is also widely understood in the North of country, around Tetouan and the Rif. Moroccans are also excellent linguists and anyone who’s dealt with tourists before is bound to know some English and maybe a few other languages too.

In this section, you will learn some useful phrases in Moroccan Arabic (also called darija) and the main Berber dialect Tachelhit, spoken in Agadir, the Anti-Atlas and the Souss Valley.
