Multilingual Moroccans will put you to shame
Moroccans switch languages mid-sentence, reflecting the cultures — Berber, Arab, French and Spanish — that have crisscrossed the country.
Arabic is the official language, but you’ll also hear French, Spanish, Berber and various dialects.
Arabic is the official language, and you’ll hear the Moroccan dialect, Darija, spoken on the street.
French continues to be widely spoken in cities; foreigners are often addressed in this first. Spanish is still spoken in Tangier.
There are also three main dialects spoken by the country’s Berber majority: Tashelhit, Tamazight and Tarifit.
You’ll be able to get by with English in the main tourist hubs, although “La, shukran” (“No, thank you” in Arabic) is one phrase to master.
