SIT Study Abroad Morocco: Arabic Language and Community Service

 NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs. Visit the SIT website for more details.

Advance your spoken and written Arabic skills through community service and immersion in Moroccan culture.
 

WHY STUDY IN MOROCCO?

In Rabat’s centuries-old medina, rapidly develop your Arabic skills through intensive study, homestays, and frequent outings within the community. Bargain with shopkeepers in souks, order mint tea in cafés, discuss current issues with Moroccan university students, and learn about Moroccan history and arts at museums and monuments. You’ll travel to Meknes, Volubilis, and Fes. Explore small towns in the Rif Mountains such as Chefchaouen and Ouezzane, and experience rural life in a nearby village. You’ll also complete a community service project with a Moroccan NGO.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Hone your Arabic skills through language classes, outings, and homestay
  • Experience Moroccan culture through activities such as cooking, calligraphy, and costuming
