The amount of time you spend in Meknes this winter is up to you! Beginning mid-December 2023 until mid-January 2024 AALIM will be offering weekly intensive sessions from 2 to 5 weeks in length.

You create the length of your program depending on what suits you.


Included in the price of tuition is a stay with a family in Meknes, double occupancy, with two meals a day, breakfast and dinner.

AALIM recognizes that language learning is tied closely to cultural understanding and a host family stay only enhances your time while in Morocco.
