These first grade children were precious. Their native tongue was Arabic, but were learning a new language in this class: Tamazight. This is the language of the native Amazigh (Berber) people of north Africa. A large number of these tribes live in Morocco. King Mohammed VI has been sensitive to these indigenous people and has officially deemed Tamazight an additional language of Morocco. You'll now see this language written under the Arabic on most signage around the cities and towns. This language was only a spoken one for centuries. An alphabet was invented for it. See the photos. Looks Greek. Mohamed sat with us in the back of the room while the children read passages from their books. He couldn't understand a word of it. Count me out, too.
