- How to learn Moroccan Arabic (Darija) fast?
- What to start with?
- Is it difficult?
- Can I learn it without learning the Arabic alphabet?
- What course to choose?
- Are online courses efficient?
These are the most frequest questions asked by foreigners wishing to learn Darija. Darija is a very specific dialect, it is not taught at schools, it is learnt by practice. Thus, the best way to learn it is to do it as the natives do. With the help of a native / local.
I want to share with you the way I am learning it.
A good friend of mine, Abdeljabar Taoufikallah, a linguist and language lover designed an efficient Moroccan Arabic course for beginners (you can read more about the author of the course in the article about the most inspiring Moroccan entrepreneurs).
I was lucky to be given it as a gift and I loved it! There are over 29 short, yet very informative units. You will learn the basics of Darija and be able to make your own sentences. The course is divided into short units so you can devote a couple of minutes to learn Darija every day.
Who should buy the course?
The course is perfect for complete beginners who wish to start learning Moroccan Arabic and for people who already speak it or understand, and want to polish their grammar. Everything presented to you in a very understandable and easy way!
I recommend it to those who want to understand Moroccan Arabic grammar and be able to create sentences on their own. The course is not a speaking practice. It can, however, help you to pronounce words correctly as you follow Abdeljabar and repeat after him.
Who shouldn’t buy the course?
If you expect to learn Darija in 1,5h – it’s not a course for you. It’s something that will help you to understand the rules and apply them.
It is also not a course for someone who wants to practice speaking only. The course focuses on grammar.
