Summer 2018 Participant
The most rewarding parts of this program were interacting with the locals and being forced to use the Arabic we had learned in class. Most were very kind and loved that we were learning their language and trying to use it, even if it wasn't very good!

Alyssa Sharp, Summer 2017 Participant
My favorite part about this program was the professors' dedication to their students. There was never a moment in this program where I felt like I had no one to turn to when a problem arose.

Julia Justine Wallace-Santesteban, Summer 2017 Participant
The Arabic program was very intensive but incredibly rewarding at the same time. I started as a beginner (no knowledge of any Arabic words), and I can now hold full introductory conversations, write essays, and much more. The teachers are very helpful, and the classes are small.
