I studied at Dar Loughat for almost 5 months while I did field research for my senior thesis. I found their courses to be a perfect mix of language and cultural studies, especially my Darija classes. The teachers are incredible. They make Arabic extremely accessible for beginners and the small class size gives each student lots of face time with instructors. My teachers also knew so much about their city and its fascinating history that I often left class having learned just as much about Moroccan culture as Arabic. I was doing field research for my senior thesis and I found the school to be incredibly supportive of their students and their independent projects. They helped me find an apartment, they hooked me up with contacts to interview, they invited everyone over to celebrate Eid Al-Fitr, and hosted couscous lunches on Fridays. I would recommend Dar Loughat to anyone considering studying Arabic abroad. The north of Morocco is fascinating and the personal attention you receive as a student at Dar Loughat is unparelleled.

I studied Moroccan Arabic (Darija) for one month in Sept. 2008 at Dar Loughat and had such a wonderful experience! Not only were the teachers fantastic, but the activities and support of the staff really enriched the experience. I would do it all over again if I could and highly recommend this school!

Dar Loughat is a fantastic place!
I took a four week course in summer 2007. It was my first time in Morocco and my first time in a Muslim country at all. I wanted to start learning Arabic from the very beginning and get to know a new culture. Fair course fees and apparently a private atmosphere had largely influenced my choice for this school compared to others for example in Damascus.
Dar Loughat surpassed my expectations by far! It was a truly magnificent experience!
Dar Loughat does not only provide quality Arabic lessons in small groups, but really immerses you into the Moroccan culture. Staying in a Moroccan host family is the best you can ever do!
Dar Loughat stands out for its open atmosphere and the stuff caring so much about every single student! Various weekend activities and evening events compensate for the effort of learning such a hard language like Arabic.
One year after my first stay at Dar Loughat, I took part in an essay competition and won a week of free private Arabic lessons! It was just perfect after I had spent a semester abroad at Al Akhawayn University in central Morocco.
I'd really like to thank Zayd, Reda, Zineb and all the others who made this happen! I wish them all the best and will certainly come back every time I return to Morocco!
