You’ll encounter many languages in Morocco. Strolling down the streets of Tangier, you will surely hear French, Arabic (the Moroccan dialect of course), Spanish, some English, and if you have the ear for it, one of the three Berber languages. But the heart language of Morocco is Arabic. It’s the language of the Mosque and the coffee shop. This semitic language is also a gateway into a world of art and design. Arabic calligraphy is one of the trademark crafts of Arab and Islamic culture. Originating from a desire not to recreate images of the divine in human form, Arabic script was used to preserve the writing of the Quran. Today, it continues to be a way to artistic expression.
