Morocco: Intensive Arabic
Conducted in English
Set in Africa’s northwest corner, Morocco is a bridge between Europe, Africa, and the Arab east. Just nine miles separate Tangier, Morocco, from the Spanish coast. The only monarchy in Arab North Africa, Morocco blends Amazigh (Berber), Arab, African, and European influences in its culture.
Rabat is one of Morocco’s “imperial cities” and its modern capital. It is home to the leading educational institutions in the country and offers students opportunities to move from the shops and cafes of the “European” city to the winding alleys and exciting markets of the old medina in a few minutes’ walk.
The Summer Intensive Arabic Program in Rabat focuses on Modern Standard Arabic at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Students live with Arabic-speaking Moroccan families and attend classes at AMIDEAST’s facilities in the bustling Agdal area of the city.
*Program open only to students with a 3.0 GPA or above.
