Overall Experience
I learned a lot about the importance of foreign language and was forced to confront my race in new ways. It was incredibly meaningful. - Mount Holyoke College View Entire Review
I gained a much wider worldview. For each time I was frustrated with the environment around me, I had at least five moments that made up for it with beautiful views, friendly people, and new skills to take with me. - SUNY - College at Geneseo View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself. My program was definitely more challenging than a lot of my friends who studied in Europe, but I also feel that I got a lot more out of my experience. - American University View Entire Review
Incredibly worthwhile - great introduction to Arabic and an even better exposure to the diversity of the North African region - American University View Entire Review

My experience abroad was most certainly worthwhile. I became very close with my host family, and felt that I was really able to immerse myself in the culture through my host family living arrangement, Moroccan language partners, weekly intercultural dialogues, and weekend travel/exploration.

A student studying abroad with AMIDEAST: Rabat - Regional Studies in French
I learned that people are people wherever you go, but US citizens could really learn a LOT from Moroccans. I've learned that contrary to popular belief, most people are indifferent about Americans. We aren't hated nor loved. - University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee View Entire Review

About

Bienvenue au Maroc! Study in the imperial city of Rabat, Morocco’s bustling capital in which Arab, European, indigenous Amazigh, and sub-Saharan African influences intersect to create a cultural dynamic unlike any other.
The AMIDEAST Education Abroad Regional Studies in French program offers a unique study abroad opportunity for intermediate-advanced students of the French language. The diverse array of courses are taught in the French language (with the exception of Arabic courses). Colloquial Moroccan Arabic is a required course, and Modern Standard Arabic is available as an optional course as well. In addition to that, recent courses have been drawn from topics like: Francophone literature, Middle East & North Africa studies, history, religion, sociology, and more! Homestays with local French-speaking Moroccan families grant students an intimate look at the local culture as they hone their language skills in a distinctly non-European Francophone environment.
Finally, organized excursions span exciting locations from the ancient medina of Fez to the quiet village of Zawyat Ahansal in the Atlas Mountains. Allons-y!
