Mary,

Mi espanol no es muy bueno, pero intendo ayudar. Cuando lingua hablas con tu esposo? Si en espanol, no tienes una problema. Por la entrevista, solicitas un interprete. El consulado tiene proveer.

Pardon mi espanol, estudio solo un semestre. Quizas hay alguien el habla espanol mas bueno ayudar.

Bueno noche,

Liz

My husband had his interview in Arabic.

Really? I don't know why but I just assumed it was in English. That's good to know though! ;) (even though my fiance speaks English well, he might get nervous or something!)

timeline doesn't matter.

My husband's interviewer was American, but spoke to him french... and my husband answered in english!

There was also an Algerian man that spoke to my husband only in english... I think it depends on the interviewer.. just be prepared :)

we decided that unless he was uncomfortable, Said would speak English at the interview (he speaks it well) mainly b/c that is how *we* communicate... all of our evidence was in English. My 2cents is that you should speak whatever language you communicate w/ your fiancee in. Good luck!

My 2cents is that you should speak whatever language you communicate w/ your fiancee in.

I think that's right as long as that language is Arabic, English, or French. If it is another langauge, such as Spanish (or Italian like us), I think it would be safer to conduct the interview in Arabic than to involve a translator. Wasn't it Zizi&Zuki that said that she thinks their delay was due to some misunderstanding in the translation?

ETA: I went to double check on the specifics of Zizi&Zuki's interview and it seems the translator was translating from Arabic to English for that one female CO. Does she not speak arabic?

Well if she doesn't speak any Arabic then why can't I have her job? :lol:

I was looking into employment opportunities a while back at the embassy in Rabat and one of the requirements to work for the consualte or embassy in Morocco is that you speak 5th level Arabic and French.

Now the question is why on earth would they use local translators? I really feel this is part of their tactic for interviewing. They don't want everyone they interview knowing they speak their language. Of course I could be wrong about that, but if it is a requirement to speak the local language at a high level then why use these translators during interviews? Makes you wonder huh :whistle:

Spanish is very common in northern Morocco where my husband is from. They are not that far from Spain there and many Moroccans who live in Spain are from that region. My husband speaks a decent amount of Spanish just from being around friends who speak it. I don't see why the consulate would find it surprising that a Moroccan would speak Spanish, or why they shouldn't have a translator available who did.
