They also speak French and Spanish. In the south, French is more common, while in the north; both French and Spanish are spoken. Most Moroccans have a few words of English, especially those working in the service industry - bars, restaurants etc. It's slowly becoming more popular as the number of tourists increases each year.
In any case, you'll be much appreciated if you can say a few words of the local lingo.
