Join the daily swirl of life in Rabat, the cosmopolitan capital that’s home to diplomats, students and multilingual professionals. This CIEE program is the ideal backdrop for your daily Arabic language instruction (in both Darija and Modern Standard Arabic), and explorations into the rich traditions of Moroccan culture.
Drink mint tea, eat traditional sweets, and take in sweeping ocean views in cafes near the 12th-century Kasbah. Converse with merchants while browsing in the old-world Medina.
Back home with your Moroccan host family, you’ll practice your Arabic skills as you prepare and share traditional meals and enjoy authentic everyday life.
Through CIEE activities, you’ll connect with Moroccan artists, musicians, and fellow students. Each day, in different ways, you’ll discover the enduring strengths of this open and progressive society that’s been a crossroads for African, Middle Eastern, and European civilizations for centuries.
College credit option is available for this program; see our site for details.
