2012 Summer Arabic Language Program in Meknes, Morocco
The National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations has partnered with The Arab-American Language Institute in Morocco (AALIM) to provide a 2012 Summer Language Program in Morocco. Through the program, students spend six weeks in historic Meknes taking part in intensive Arabic language instruction. Students spend four hours each weekday in formal Modern Standard Arabic classes and complete out-of-the-classroom assignments. Students gain direct personal experience in Moroccan culture, history, and society through a variety of day excursions, local outings, workshops and demonstrations. Meknes is an ideal setting for students to focus on learning Arabic while exploring ancient and modern Morocco. The main AALIM center is located inside the traditional walled old city, called the Medina. Meknes is also a thriving modern metropolis of over one million residents. The AALIM center is just a short walk from the bustling town center in the New City.
