Join IGAI’s unique and comprehensive summer and regular programs which offer more than Arabic courses and cultural programs. Experience the rich diversity of the Moroccan culture and live in the largest medieval city in the world, Fez.  Take a trip back in time and you may just learn something about the future.

Ibn Ghazi Arabic Institute offers all of these opportunities to students and professionals from all over the world and from all walks of life. Our courses run throughout the year and offer a six-week, four week, three week or two week courses  in Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and Moroccan Arabic (Darija). The institute’s friendly and highly qualified teachers are native speakers with years of experience in instructing Arabic as a foreign language. Housed in a large, shady villa, Ibn Ghazi Arabic Institute provides an ideal setting for studying in Morocco’s intellectual, historical and cultural capital, Fez.  Fez is home to the historic medina which remains the largest medieval city in the world and one of the few remaining ones.

In addition to language courses, Ibn Ghazi Arabic Institute offers lectures on Moroccan culture and history, Islam and media and Arab and Islamic civilization. This is in addition to a wide variety of other activities that include but not limited to trips, calligraphy and craftsmanship workshops, movie screenings, and lunches with Moroccan families.

The relatively modest tuition, the low cost of living in Fez and the widely available cheap flights to and from Morocco renders Ibn Ghazi Arabic Institute a cost-effective alternative for studying Arabic both abroad and locally.
