There are lots of variants of spoken, colloquial Arabic, so if you're keen to chat to the locals in Morocco then this is the best place to start. Local Arabic variants borrow many words from other dominant languages in their countries such as French, English and Berber. You’ll be able to understand what they’re saying after learning with uTalk but Arabic speakers in other parts of the world can struggle.§Learn Moroccan Arabic with uTalk
Moroccan Arabic is so different from other regional dialects of Arabic that it is considered the most difficult to understand by Middle Eastern Arabs.§
Moroccans use lots of French words in their daily speech but also borrow from Spanish. For example, 'kitchen' is kuzina (كوزينة) from Spanish cucina. 'Week' is simana (سيمانا) from Spanish semana.
Vowels are very short and are often dropped: 'country', pronounced balad (بلد), becomes blad or bled.
