Knowledge of moroccan culture - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
I learned a great deal of cultural understanding and flexibility. My preconceived notions about the Arab world were challenged and my sense of identity was further shaped. - University of Pennsylvania View Entire Review
The program was definitely worthwhile. In a general sense, I feel more exposed to the issues surrounding North Africa, Morocco, and the Muslim world. But on a personal level, the program pushed me academically and physically. The culture shock was a little intense at times, but it was surprising how quickly I adapted. I used a b... - CUNY - Macaulay Honors College View Entire Review
I gained further knowledge in standard Arabic, and basic exposure to the Darija dialect. I've also gained vast experience in living within a culture I am not used to. This program is absolutely worth it. - Cleveland State University View Entire Review

Past Review I'll Be Back
Definitely worthwhile, I learned more about the world around me and more about a whole new culture as well as the language. - Illinois Institute of Technology View Entire Review
My experience abroad was extremely worthwhile. It opened my eyes to so much culture, history, and I was able to see many beautiful places while having meaningful interactions with locals. - University of Utah View Entire Review
I learned a lot culturally. I came into this program with just language goals; however, to learn a language you also learn the culture. The most important thing I gained from this program is exposure. Meeting different people really changes your life in subtle ways, such as the way you view the world and the way you speak/act. I... - Rutgers University - New Brunswick View Entire Review
I gained so much I think a list would be too extensive. Culture, language, friendships, and much more. If I had the option, I would hop on a plane and do it all over again right now. - Viterbo University View Entire Review
Past Review Awesome
learned about myself - Seton Hall University View Entire Review
To adjust to a new culture and yes. - Yale University View Entire Review
The experience really opened my eyes to how other countries view America. It's interesting to see how Moroccans in general do not have a problem with American people but with our foreign policy. They essentially believe we just need to mind our own business. This was something that made me happy because American media depicts ot... - CUNY - John Jay College of Criminal Justice View Entire Review

I became much more independent & self-confident about my independence. I definitely think that it was necessary for me to study abroad & I got a lot out of the experience that I wasn't expecting to get. - Yale University View Entire Review
I had an immensely instructive experience and learned both a lot of Arabic and a lot about Arab culture and politics and definitely found the experience worthwhile. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Yes, I learned a lot about myself, not only language. - Grinnell College View Entire Review

About

The AMIDEAST Education Abroad Summer Intensive Arabic
program in Rabat, Morocco provides students with the opportunity to earn up to
a full academic year of Arabic in just one summer. Beginning, intermediate, and
advanced level students can jumpstart their Arabic language journey through
rigorous study in blended Modern Standard and Moroccan colloquial Arabic. Students live with Arabic-speaking Moroccan homestay
families and attend classes at AMIDEAST’s center in the bustling neighborhood
of Agdal in Rabat. The program is divided into two four-week sessions, and
classes meet five hours a day, five days per week. Each session includes about
100 hours of instruction in blended Modern Standard Arabic and the local
colloquial dialect, Darija, for a
total of six Arabic language credits. One summer session in Morocco covers the
material typically presented in one semester on a U.S. campus.
