AALIM offers a variety of intensive Arabic programs and content-based study abroad for students of all backgrounds looking to learn Arabic in Morocco. The communicative methods used in AALIM classes, as well as the Arabic-only policy in our classrooms, develop student competence in all four language skills — listening, speaking, reading, and writing. AALIM’s goal is to provide each student with the tools needed to reach their individual language goals, and to become proficient in both the Arabic language and the unspoken cultural cues necessary for truly communicating and connecting with native speakers.
