My experience at IGAI has been of a great help in the beginning of my Arabic studies. I managed, thanks to IGAI and its staff, to truly get in touch with the Moroccan way of life and mentality, which is fascinating. After IGAI’s experience, I can proudly say that I have a strong motivation to continue my Arabic studies. I highly recommend IGAI to anybody who wishes to dive into a full comprehensive experience in an Arab country, to learn not just its language but also its way of experiencing and dealing with life. The teachers and other staff are caring and kind hearted people who will always occupy a place in my heart with happy and friendly memories.

“The course was well-organized and well-taught. The accommodation was confortable and hospitable and the food was great. One very positive aspect in my experience at IGAI was my conversation partner, Youssef, my daily conversations with whom provided me with confidence in speaking Arabic.”

IGAI’s summer programme was quite positive and largely met my expectations. The atmosphere was friendly; the teacher was enthusiastic, highly skilled and had a good sense of humor. I liked the idea of using two different manuals which were complementary for teaching Arabic. The use of computer and internet resources were also very useful. After my experience at IGAI, I feel more confident about expressing myself in Arabic

My experience at IGAI has been really a great experience not only for the Arabic language learning but also for the friendly atmosphere and the people I have met at IGAI. For me, IGAI was not only my school but it was also my home. The program was very intensive and useful. In fact, I have learnt in one month more than one full year in my home university.
