Join us for Spring Break in Morocco!
Participants will spend seven days experiencing the culture and languages of Morocco first-hand in Rabat, Fes, and Ifrane. Through visits to elementary and secondary schools in both rural and urban settings, and discussions with prominent authorities in education and culture from Moroccan universities, participants will gain a greater understanding of Arab culture as experienced in Morocco.

It is a country whose citizens must acquire facility in more than one language to be able to participate fully in civic life. Among the languages spoken are Berber, Moroccan Arabic, Standard Arabic, Spanish, and French. These linguistic competencies reflect Morocco’s indigenous past, its prominence as a crossroads of Arab civilization over many centuries, and its recent legacy as a European colony.

Application deadline: November 23

Open House
November 6 at 5pm
610 West 112th Street, NYC
