For thousands of years, Morocco has benefited from the cross-cultural exchange of Berber, Arab, African, and European peoples, and their customs, learning, and gastronomy. Today, Morocco is home to 34 million, and is one of the most stable and moderate constitutional monarchies in the Arab World. By Moroccan standards, Rabat is a fairly young city, having been established in 1146. Located 150 miles south of Morocco’s northern tip, where the Bou Regreg river meets the Atlantic Ocean, Rabat is the nation’s capital and home to just over 1 million Maghariba (Moroccans). Our host site, Mohammed V University, was founded in 1957 as the first modern university in Morocco. This program is designed for students with proficiency in Arabic, who can adhere to the Middlebury Language Pledge® while studying abroad. The Pledge shows a commitment to linguistic immersion and is the key to students’ successful language development and cultural integration.

Noor Majan believes that successful language acquisition occurs when students are repeatedly challenged to develop their listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities in a structured environment. Thus, Noor Majan’s intensive Arabic program reflects this idea by developing all four language skills with a focus in distinct concentrations; foundational knowledge in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), skills development, and application of knowledge through media literacy. The program will provide intensive reading, writing, speaking, and listening practice for 25 formal contact hours per week. In addition to the 25 formal contact hours per week, Noor Majan’s intensive Arabic course strengthens students’ abilities with 2 hours of language partner sessions per week. During these language partner sessions, students will learn how to apply their classroom knowledge in a real-life setting, solidifying their knowledge. Noor Majan uses authentic and genuine material from print and broadcast and media from the internet. Students will acquire the competence to consume, understand and comment on news broadcasts, articles, excerpts and forum contributions using the adequate language register.Throughout the course, students will build on existing knowledge in Arabic grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, spoken and written skill-sets. Finally, students will be introduced to various spoken dialects, enhancing their ability to understand the greater Arabic speaking world.
