A great way to learn languages is through immersion and many people come to Morocco to learn Darija (the Moroccan dialect of Arabic) or French. Essaouira is a small city and there are not many formal language schools, but these two offer lessons:
- Institut Français, Derb Laâlouj – 9 Rue Mohammed Diouri, Essaouira Médina. Tel : 05 24 47 61 97 / 62 14
- International Center of Languages, N° 8, Avenue al Aqaba, Appt 5-6 (next to the Attijariwafabank). Tel: 05 24 78 55 99
It is also possible to find teachers offering private tuition, usually for around 60-100dh per hour. If you would like contact details, please mail maroc-o-phile for further information.
