The teaching method used in our Arabic and French courses in Morocco is based on the concept of open communication and two-way discussion rather than one-way lecturing. We use encouraging, confidence building techniques and our course curriculum is largely student led and tailored to individual group needs.
Through creative and fun teaching methods, using a variety of textbooks, topical handouts, games, and audio-visual material, teachers encourage students to use your language skills with confidence from day one. Through using Arabic or French in this way from the start of your course we believe tricky pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary is better committed to memory, making for easier recall. By focusing on building your confidence from the beginning you will be able to go out and use the language on a day-to-day basis in the streets of Rabat.
