Program Overview

Program Description:
As Morocco was under the French protectorate between 1912 and 1956, the French language is widely spoken throughout the whole country. French still serves as the primary business language which is required if you want to have a good position within a company. The French Language is also widely used in education, commerce and government. Within Moroccan households, families often speak a mixture of Moroccan Darija and French. When you are in Morocco you hear French everywhere around you and will be able to put your knowledge into practice. Besides learning French, you acquire a great cultural experience within a culture so different from your own.

Within the first week of the French summer course you have five hours of French a day to learn French survival skills. For advanced students you advance your acquired knowledge by attending French literature and other topics in French. During week two you have four hours a day of French language classes in the morning and one hour a day of Moroccan culture classes in the afternoon together with cultural activities outside of the classroom. The language classes provide you with oral and written French skills. For the Moroccan culture classes you have lectures on Moroccan history, culture, the political system of Morocco, Architecture, the situation of Moroccan women and media. Students are given placement tests on arrival and placed in the level appropriate for their French language proficiency.

The ILCS Group aims at promoting dialogue between cultures via education. In order to accomplish this aim, ILCS offers several international programs where knowledge meets daily life practice, to make it a unique opportunity for dialogue and understanding experience.
Setting Description:
An experience in Morocco takes you beyond the classroom experience and gives you an opportunity to face different intellectual, cultural and linguistic environments. This experience allows you to live in a country full of customs, with nice weather and a rich landscape variety; where people are kind and always ready to help you and make you feel part of this world. Taking the chance to live this international experience, students enrich and prepare themselves for the global market, where cultural awareness is a key ingredient. Students learn from other cultures while having the opportunity to share their own culture with others.
