  • Author: Abdellah Chekayri
  • Description: “An Introduction to Moroccan Arabic and Culture” and the accompanying content-based multimedia DVD are designed to enable students to communicate effectively using Moroccan Arabic. Since Moroccan Arabic is rarely written or used in formal communication, the strength of the book lies in training learners in speaking and listening skills that can be used in everyday situations. Upon completing this course, students should be able to: greet people; introduce themselves; ask and reply to simple questions; use days and numbers in context; order food; shop; make appointments and reservations; give directions; talk about future plans; and, use common idiomatic expressions. Each chapter of this title includes: cultural introductions to social, religious, or cultural aspects of Moroccan society; listening comprehension exercises; vocabulary exercises; dialogues and texts; conversation practice; grammar instruction on how native speakers structure their speech; and, interactive and video materials to support cultural understanding, listening, speaking, and grammar.

The audio demonstrates the pronunciation of the Arabic transcribed in the book and is keyed to the text.
