Modern Standard Arabic
Our core curriculum is divided into nine levels. The first six levels' primary components are an intensive study of basic Arabic language grammatical structures, mastery of Arabic script and pronunciation. Throughout this programme emphasis is placed on developing the four language skills (listening, speaking, reading & writing), with added emphasis placed on communication through conversation classes.
The later three levels of our program introduce students to more advanced aspects of Arabic, like translation, complex grammar structure, reading analysis, in addition to discussion and presentation courses that help students develop and refine their communicative proficiency.
Moroccan Colloquial Arabic
This Arabic language course introduces the students to Moroccan Colloquial Arabic through activities emphasizing the functional aspect of the dialect. This course covers the basic grammatical structure of the dialect and aims to expand students' vocabulary and develop their oral skills through interaction with native speakers, film discussions, and other interactive activities. This Arabic course can be more immersed in the rich Moroccan culture through proverb studies.

After spending three hours each morning studying Arabic, you will have plenty of time to explore Marrakesh and beyond. Our program also includes spending several afternoons per week participating in many cultural activities such as Moroccan cooking lessons, hiking, sightseeing in and around Rabat and the beautiful High Atlas Mountains as well as an education of various cultural and historical points about Morocco. These activities are conducted in both Arabic and English. There may be an additional fee for full days or weekend excursions which would include transport, meals, entrance fees and/or accommodation.
