Hello all,

I am a foreigner living in Morocco, my native language is english. It would be easier just to speak french but I believe this excludes you from much of moroccan society, also during much of my day I interact mostly with many poor people who do not speak french. I speak some dareeja, I can usually say what I want, but often have difficulty understanding people especially when they speak quicky, or do not speak clearly.

Hello Jimbo, mr7ba bîk m3ânâ!
Where do you live in Morocco? I agree with you! When you’re living in Morocco, you better learn Darija rather than French. This way you’ll get to communicate with a greater number of people.
Let us see you use Darija in the forum :).
See you around.

You live in Fès? it’s great!
May I ask you if you know a good hostel there?
I’ve just heard talking about three places where we could go : Hotel Volubilis, Hôtel Rex and Hôtel central, with a preference for Hôtel Rex. Do you know them?
