    Elevate your French skills in Rabat, where over 35% of residents are Francophones. 

    Relish the experience of four weeks of French language immersion in the capital of Morocco, a diverse country where education and local government operate in French! After language classes, dive into French conversations with locals while exploring Rabat’s medina (the ancient part of the city) and bustling souks (traditional markets). Meet local teens while admiring the impressive Chellah ruins, the majestic Hassan Tower, or the 12th-century Kasbah of the Udayas. Enjoy traditional cultural activities, too, like an artisanal craft (pottery, mosaics, and bamboo/ratan) workshop and Arabic calligraphy class. 

    Living with your French-speaking host family, you’ll gain a deeper appreciation of everyday life, sharing cups of refreshing mint tea and building your language fluency over quality conversations. On excursions, you’ll see beautiful destinations like Chefchaouen, Morocco’s famed blue city, and Tangier, a port city that acts as the gateway between Africa and Europe. Your summer in Rabat will open your eyes to this African nation where cultures have blended for centuries, all while bettering your French.
