The Routledge Introductory Course in Moroccan Arabic is ideal for both class-based and independent learners.
No prior knowledge of Arabic is required as the course guides you step-by-step through the essentials of the language. Transliteration is used throughout to provide learners with an accurate representation of this spoken language while Arabic script is provided from Part II for those who have prior knowledge of Arabic.
Part I introduces the phonology of Moroccan allowing you to recognise and pronounce the sounds unique to Moroccan. The basic grammar of Moroccan is also presented here ensuring students have a solid foundation on which to build their communicative skills.
Part II is arranged thematically and equips you with the vocabulary and cultural information needed to communicate effectively in Morocco in a range of common situations.
By the end of the course learners will have reached the CEFR A2 level/ACTFL Intermediate-Mid.
