While Standard Arabic is the official language in twenty two Arab-speaking states, with more than 200 million native speakers, it isn??t the actual spoken language. In each of those countries, the spoken language used is different than the official standardised one, and that??s because the latter is mainly employed for written governmental/educational purposes only. So, why learn Moroccan Darija out of all the other Arabic languages? Because Morocco has been ruled by many different governments and empires over time, starting by when the Arabs invaded the Kingdom to being colonised by the French and Spanish, Moroccan Arabic, or Darija ended up as a unique blend of several languages, mainly Amazigh (Berber), Standard Arabic, French and Spanish. Therefore, when you learn Darija, you learn something out of all these other languages. As such, in this 5 weeks?? course, you will get introduced to the history of Moroccan Darija, learn to write/read it using the Latin alphabet; learn its unique sounds, as well as useful common phrases.
