Title: An Introduction to Moroccan Arabic and Culture
Written By: Abdellah Chekayri
URL: http://press.georgetown.edu/book/languages/introduction-moroccan-arabic-and-culture
Description:

An Introduction to Moroccan Arabic and Culture and the accompanying
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.

The book uses Romanized transcription alongside Arabic script for the first three
chapters and thereafter only the Arabic script. It also includes a glossary and
answer key. It requires approximately 120 contact hours, plus 180-240 additional
hours of preparation outside class. A novice student should reach the
intermediate-mid level of proficiency by the end of this course.
