Volunteers Learn Arabic in Morocco
Morocco is a safe and moderate North African country that offers a fascinating first taste of the continent. It also gives you the ideal opportunity to learn more about Arabic and Islamic influences.
One of the best ways to develop greater knowledge of Islamic culture is to learn Arabic. You can do this through Projects Abroad on an intensive long Language Project where you will receive 15 hours of tuition each week.
Alternatively, you can undertake a short 5-hour, 14-hour, or 30-hour course in Arabic that is scheduled alongside your main international volunteering experience. If you are in the country for at least twelve weeks, you could also complete a 60-hour language course in conjunction with your time volunteering abroad. For more information please visit our Language Add-ons Page.
Arabic Course Abroad
While taking part in the Arabic Language Project, you’ll be living in Rabat, an ancient but cosmopolitan city on the Atlantic coast of Morocco. Rabat is the political and business capital of the country. Arabic is the official language of Morocco, thus widely spoken.
A qualified language tutor runs the Arabic classes with the pace carefully tailored to suit your needs. Depending on when you arrive, the classes may be private lessons or you may be in a small group with two or three other volunteers. You will be living with an Arabic speaking Moroccan host family who will encourage you to practice the language at home while you experience their culture, community and customs.
After completing your Language Course, you could then choose to volunteer on a Teaching or Care project in Morocco and put your newly acquired Arabic language skills to use in a practical international working environment.
