Plunge into the culture and engage in an interactive workshop in Arabic. Yes, it's possible to learn a lot on this 3-hour intensive workshop. Allow yourself to experience a new language, be prepared to work your vocal chords for sounds that are not so familiar and have fun learning.
Learn about Arabic and Moroccan Culture
Start by learning simple phrases, greetings and common gestures that will enhance your stay in Morocco. You will notice that you will be treated differently if you speak a bit of Arabic. You'll feel more comfortable navigating your way around the Medina and be able to ask basic questions.
