Angham, and Ouled Mgatel's most famous inhabitant



Fred on Angham (a Moroccan TV program), a few months ago. Speaking Arabic, and talking about the Hamadcha.

Or, how he became famous...

There's something oddly fascination about watching a video in a language I can't understand in the slightest, that's been dubbed from ANOTHER language I can't understand.

What I did notice, however, is the hand gestures. Americans don't really do that--use their hands to talk, I mean. Watch a clip of an American talk show like "Good Morning America" and the difference is striking.

Oops, I meant "fascinating," not "fascination."

How proud you must feel of Frederick. My husband says that he has done an amazing job with the Moroccan Arabic.

Kristin - but the video hasn't been dubbed ! Fred speaks Moroccan Arabic.
I don't know if Moroccans make more gestures than the French when they speak. Maybe different gestures. Fred, whatever language he's speaking, always uses a lot of gestures, that's for sure !

Jeannie - yes, I'm proud. And it's true that he speaks very good Arabic (hmm, better than mine...)
