An absolute MUST in Marrakech

We booked this language course directly on the second day of our stay in Marrakech. We were welcomed by three extremely friendly ladies and learned a basic vocabulary of the Arabic language. Visual and interactive means were used for this, which were very helpful. We also learned how to prepare a typical mint tea. We really liked the language course and was very helpful in the further stay! Highly Recommended!! Shukran, beslama :-)
