Hello to everyone,
I registered some months ago but forgot to introduce myself!
I’m an English teacher in a secondary school in El Ejido, Almeria. There are lots of Moroccans in this city, many coming from rural or poor areas. I feel more and more the necessity to speak darija Arabic, since most of the Moroccan children I teach (and their parents) only speak darija and can’t understand fusha Arabic. I’ve been learning fusha for five years at the School of Languages in Almeria and hopefully I will graduate next June. I find darija impressively difficult due to the lack of vowels, the speed it is spoken with and the difference between speakers coming from different parts in Morocco.
I hope to learn a few things from this forum. Thank you to you all who make it possible!
