Program Reviews:
Summer 2012 Participant
Since you are learning two related languages at once in this program, the most rewarding element of the program is two part; the time spent in the classroom where you use Modern Standard Arabic and the time you spend with Moroccans where you use Darija (Moroccan Arabic).

David Musser, Summer 2013 Participant
Completing two months of a summer intensive language program was rewarding enough. Also, on this trip a few friends and myself hiked the tallest peak in North Africa in a day. That was also very rewarding.

Nora Schultz, Summer 2014 Participant
The Arabic teachers were very helpful and always there for you.
