Morocco is a country whose citizens must acquire facility in more than one language to be able to participate fully in civic life. Among the languages spoken are Amizigh (Berber), Moroccan Arabic, Standard Arabic, Spanish, and French. These linguistic competencies reflect Morocco’s indigenous past, its prominence as a crossroads of Arab civilization over many centuries, and its recent legacy as a European colony.
