Why use this read-aloud tool?

This tool's only aim is to encourage you to speak aloud, in order to familiarise yourself with the language you wish to speak.
By listening to yourself speak, you will speed up your rate of learning spectacularly.

On the other hand, we do not advise you to use it thinking that it will allow you to acquire perfect pronunciation, only a human teacher can truly help you to achieve this.

We have added an extra little service to make this tool even more enjoyable, clicking on the words provides you with automatic translations along with the sound. These translations, when correct, can help you to understand the meaning of words in isolation, but do not in any way claim to provide the overall meaning of a sentence. This translation service is only the Beta version of a tool that we intend to offer in the near future.

Please note: this service only works with the CHROME browser, which you can download by clicking on the following link: Google Chrome.

Why speak Moroccan Arabic while traveling?

Knowing Moroccan Arabic is an asset for all lovers of Moroccan culture, who will be able to make the most of their stay in Morocco. The diversity of landscapes that extend from desert areas to mountain ranges, alongside the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, a dazzling culture, a unique gastronomy: these are assets that guarantee this country's position as a first class tourist destination in Africa. 
If your desires are more business oriented, we don't need to tell you that Morocco is one of the leading economic powers in Africa. 

Make a success of your stay in Morocco

Whether you are going to spend a few days with friends for a leisure trip or if you are on a business trip, nothing will be more useful to you than to be able to slip a few words in the language of your interlocutors, who will appreciate your effort and will be certainly more willing to help.

How to succeed in having good pronunciation within a week to a month?

Start by learning the alphabet well. Arabic is one of the most widely spoken languages ​​in the world, having many millions of speakers, especially in the Middle East and North Africa. 
Known as Darija in Morocco, the Moroccan Arabic dialect brings together other varieties of the language spoken in the country, and is used as the lingua franca between Arabic-speaking and Berber-speaking people.
Darija is characterized by the use of the Latin alphabet and numbers on the Internet and SMS, and by the substitution of some letters of standard Arabic. Here are some examples: 
The ث is replaced by ت. 
The ظ is replaced by ض. 
The pronunciation of standard Arabic is based on simple vowels or diphthongs and emphatic consonants (velar consonants which influence the timbre of surrounding vowels). It is notable that the writing of certain letters changes according to their position within a word. Here are some pronunciation guidelines for Moroccan Arabic: 
The خ is pronounced like the Spanish JOTA or the German CH.
The ح is aspirated as in the Arabic name Hasan.
The ھ is pronounced by a slight exhalation, like the English H of HOME.
The ر is pronounced like a rolled R.
