Center for Cross Cultural Learning
Arabic language school in Rabat, Morocco
Located in a nineteenth century building in the old city of
Rabat (the Medina), the Center for Cross-Cultural Learning (CCCL) is a private cultural
institution founded and directed by Moroccan academics with many years of experience in
cross-cultural education. Courses in Fusha (Standard Arabic) and Darija (Moroccan
Arabic) are taught by professionals trained specifically to teach Arabic as a second
language. The CCCL organizes a variety of cultural and educational activities which
include language courses, seminars and lecture series on Moroccan society and Arab and
Islamic cultures. The CCCL also sponsors art exhibits and musical performances and
organizes educational excursions to various parts of Morocco.
The center created in 1995 a language department to help participants immerse themselves
in the Moroccan community. The Arabic department follows the communicative approach in
order to strengthen the students oral abilities and skills. The center's philosophy
is that language of instruction should be in Arabic in all but the very beginning classes,
where only a minimum of English is used. The materials used for teaching may vary
according to the levels. Besides written materials, CCCL uses audio, video and internet
material and CCCL has a small library that contains dictionaries and other resources made
available for the students learning Arabic both Fusha and Darija at the center.
Courses are organized in small groups (no more than 10 students).
CCCL offers Regular, Intensive and Semi Intensive courses.
Intensive courses take place throughout the year. Students may enroll in group sessions
(min. 4) or in private tuition. There are lessons for children, pronunciation and phrase
program, etc. CCCL also offers classes of ASP (Arabic for Special Purposes), designed for
researchers, advanced in Arabic, with an interest in studying special fields such as
Politics, economy, religion, etc.
CCCL organizes homestays with Moroccan families with a possibility of sharing a room with
the same sex. The full room and board is offered within a family.
