Program Overview

Program Description:

The AMIDEAST Education Abroad Summer Intensive Arabic program in Rabat, Morocco provides students with the opportunity to earn up to a full academic year of Arabic in just one summer. Beginning, intermediate, and advanced level students can jumpstart their Arabic language journey through rigorous study in both Modern Standard Arabic and Moroccan Colloquial Arabic classes.

 

Students live with Arabic-speaking Moroccan homestay families and attend classes at AMIDEAST’s center in the bustling neighborhood of Agdal in Rabat. The program is divided into two four-week sessions, and classes meet five hours a day, five days per week. Each session includes about 100 hours of instruction in both Modern Standard Arabic and the local colloquial dialect, Darija, for a total of six Arabic language credits. One summer session in Morocco covers the material typically presented in one semester on a U.S. campus.

Setting Description:
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. Students in the program live with Arabic-speaking Moroccan families and attend classes at AMIDEAST’s facilities in the bustling Agdal area of the city.
