DLS Crash Course - Moroccan Arabic Language and Culture
DLS welcomes you to the first session of our new Crash Course series, each of which will feature DLS instructors of varying linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The purpose of these sessions will be to highlight a new language and culture for your personal edification, as well as to give you a peek at our extraordinary team. Whether you are considering taking a class at DLS yourself, you have employees for whom you anticipate needing language instruction, or you simply have an insatiable curiosity about the wide world of languages and cultures, you will walk away from DLS’ first Crash Course with a better understanding of the language(s) and culture of Morocco.
