IGAI has an excellent reputation as one of the distinguished institutions in North Africa for teaching Arabic as a foreign language and organizing cultural immersion programs.
Students and professionals from all over the world come to IGAI not only to learn Arabic, but also to take part in various activities which introduce them to the Arab and Moroccan culture. These activities include, but not limited to, cultural trips and excursions, calligraphy workshops, lectures, cooking classes, to name a few.
Located in Fez, IGAI allows students to explore this timeless city which remains the historical and cultural capital of Morocco and one of few remaining medieval cities in the world. Our State of the art facility is a large shady villa located in a calm residential area just ten minutes on foot from downtown Fez and ten minutes by car to the historic medina of Fez. Our large air-conditioned classrooms, the computer lab and wireless connection offer an ideal setting for studying.
IGAI’s teachers are highly qualified, experienced and enthusiastic native speakers with advanced degrees in applied linguistics, education and Arabic literature and years of experience teaching both independent students and study abroad groups in Morocco and abroad. Their main aim is to ensure that their students build a solid foundation in communication skills, which allow learners to use Arabic language with confidence and self-assurance.
At IGAI, we believe that language is a unifying force and an indispensable means to realize peace and coexistence. Therefore, we are so keen on cultural exchange and intercultural dialogue.
