Program Overview

Want to gain a highly sought-after skill in the job market? Learn Arabic this summer with CIEE in the enchanting city of Rabat. You’ll take modern standard and colloquial Arabic courses, then head out into the city to give your new skills a whirl. From bargaining in the medina to visiting fascinating ruins and colonial architecture, taking part in activities like cooking classes to living with a Moroccan family, we help you experience it all.

Study abroad in Morocco and you’ll:
  • See the North African coast, Casablanca, Chefchaoune, village of Ourika, Asilah Tangers, and Marrakesh
  • Get Arabic instruction at just the right level for you
  • Practice Arabic in real life as you go to museums, NGOs, and cultural events
The CIEE Difference

Excursions

In addition to field trips to Rabat’s museums, NGOs, and universities, you’ll also go on a day trip to Asilah, a 3,500-year-old town on the North African coast that’s been a haven for Phoenicians, pirates, Portuguese, Spanish, Moroccans, and resort-goers. Further south on the Atlantic coast, you’ll visit Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco and one of the most important economic centers in Africa. You’ll also go on overnight trips to Chefchaoune, a small town famous for its ubiquitous sky-blue buildings, and Marrakesh, a city in central Morocco built by Berbers. Cultural activities around Rabat – like a calligraphy workshop, a visit to Parliament, a scavenger hunt, and an interpretive dance class – will get you practicing your Arabic skills.

Volunteering

There’s no better way to immerse yourself in Morocco than by lending a helping hand to locals in the community. You might work with descendants of pre-Arab inhabitants of North Africa, hospital patients, visually impaired students, mentally challenged youth, women’s groups, or children from low-income families.

Student to Student

CIEE connects you with local Moroccan university students from day one. They’re a part of everyday programming and will help you integrate into Moroccan society.
