Recommend MCAS to all Chinese friends

Translation: Thanks to the hospitality of MCAS, I am here to experience the local customs of Morocco through a unique experience of volunteer + travel mode. I am very willing to recommend MCAS to Chinese college students. I want to call for Morocco too. Friends who have seen the 2018 Russia World Cup should be deeply impressed by the crazy call of CCTV5 Xuyang. Yes, Xu Yang’s guide to repeating the country is Morocco. Of course, he also won the nickname “Xu Zhimo”. At the time, Xu’s guidance emphasized the strong football atmosphere in Morocco. I really felt it in the days of Morocco. There are children playing everywhere in the streets and all kinds of shops on the street often sell a few Thai jerseys. From the perspective of a football fan, I think Moroccan football has a good fan base. The personal skills of Moroccan players are absolutely sufficient. If accompanied by scientific tactics and good execution, the Moroccan national team will definitely be able to play some results!

Return to the topic and brief you on my schedule for a few days in Morocco. On the round-trip ticket, it is recommended that you consider Hong Kong round-trip, so that the tax is small, much cheaper, and if there is a ticket, you do not need a Hong Kong and Macao pass. The largest airport in Morocco is Casa Mohammed V Airport, which is also convenient for transportation, but the MCAS station is in the capital Rabat. My schedule was four days in advance, playing; then I volunteered for 5 days in the old town of Rabat to teach my friends to learn Chinese and English. I had three days left to continue playing. Ali, the person in charge of MCAS, is really good. You can ask him for all kinds of things to book a ticket. Of course, I will speak Arabic, so I basically play with myself. On the first day, Rabat-Danjir-Shefshavwan, the second day of Chefchaouen-Fez, the third day of Fez-Evlan-Fez-Rabat. I am more eager to pursue speed, and I can guarantee efficiency. I can speak Arabic and prevent it from being pitted. So I basically got a clockwise loop in the northwest of Morocco for 3 days. Just a single chartered car will cost a lot of money. Then, after returning to Rabat, I was teaching the small basin friends in the morning. In the afternoon, the local volunteer lady led us to go around and prepare lessons in the evening or pack up. Xiaopen friends like China's various gadgets, but the English level is really uneven. Fortunately, I will speak Arabic, communicate with them as much as possible, praise more, encourage more, and the teaching is relatively smooth. In fact, this experience is also Very interesting. In the afternoon and evening, after the group activities are over, I will usually run out myself, take a tram around, and then find someone to practice Arabic. After five days of teaching, I took an IELTS test in the university town of Rabat. Speaking and writing really have an advantage, but listening is particularly difficult, so the total score is still not good. Then there was only one and a half days left, and I went to Casa at a very fast speed. I played half an afternoon, one night and one morning, but it was almost the same. The city’s tourism was too serious, and it should not be treated more. Everyone should be able to understand. Back to Rabat at noon, simply clean up in the afternoon, the plane in the evening.

When the trip is over, everything is going well.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
As a Chinese college student, I think this kind of volunteer + travel model is actually quite good, but the domestic seems to be less popular, so I think everyone can consider the "going out of the world" nonprofit organization. Then MCAS is a local cooperative organization in Morocco that has been carefully selected by the world. The experience is very rich and the model has already taken shape. Thanks to the two institutions for making me an unforgettable experience.

It was my greatest time in my life

I went to Morocco in July 28- August 7 2019, it was greatest and happiest time in my life. I met girls and boys there which they are really nice and always with great ideas. I love them so much. As for my students, they are reeeeallly cute and talkative, I feel so young when i with them, and I think I found the meaning of my life. I feel that I am meaningful to society. I am needed and loved by the children. I’m so appreciated for that. It was super glory to me. As for the host, they are really friendly and always try to help us. They give us a lot of advice which is really useful. As for Morocco, it is a great country. People are nice and Passionate, we I walked on the street every one say hi to me hahaha. People there are good at enjoying life. It influenced me a lot. I should thank for everything.

This is a very unforgettable and amazing trip. I met a lots of friends from different cultural backgrounds. The staffs of the volunteer center are very nice .they can always give us effective supports when we need.but i think the activities they organized are a little bit boring.and in fact the kids in school seems hard to follow our teaching schedule.maybe if the volunteers center give us a basic teaching schedule ,we can organize the teaching activity more effectively.thanks for the local guidance ,the local organizers ,they ensure the safety of us and make us can adjust to the local culture quickly.and thanks this trip, thanks all the colleagues, the efforts of everyone makes the trip become happy ,interesting and meaningful. I really hope it is not the last time that we gather together.

What would you improve about this program?
Please offer the volunteers a more comfortable and capacious house to live.

MCAS

MCAS is, with a doubt, the perfect organization to volunteer and/or intern in Morocco. The staff really work hard and are dedicated to match you with the perfect opportunity that fits your interests. Their interest and friendliness really made my experience much more enjoyable and they were always there to help whenever I needed. I interned at a children's hospital for two months and it was honestly one of the best experiences of my life. I learned things that I will cherish forever. The traveling opportunities were amazing and I was able to travel to different parts of Morocco as well as network with other MCAS volunteers and interns from all over the world. I definitely recommend MCAS to everyone looking to volunteer and intern abroad!

Internship In Morocco

Volunteering abroad or having this internship was life changing. I got to explore a completely new culture by living with a host family and also by working at a local orphanage. I had the opportunity to travel with other students and one of the best experiences was traveling to the dessert and exploring Morocco with my roomate. I now have friends all over the world and I learned to appreciate my life a lot more back in America. Living in Morocco was one of the best experiences I have ever had.

What would you improve about this program?
Maybe having all of the students that intern or are part of MCAS meet with one another and have more cultural and engaging activities with other students who are studying/volunteering abroad.

Teaching Internship in Morocco

MCAS was incredibly helpful and attentive from our very first contact to the end of my stay in Morocco. Despite being based in Rabat, within just a few days of my inquiry Ali secured an internship for me in my prefered city Casablanca. He always followed up with me very promptly and answered all of my questions thoroughly.

MCAS was a great way for me to spend a summer in Morocco and feel safe and secure before I even arrived. It is a great program because it addresses your specific needs while not being overbearing. Teaching English in Morocco for the summer was a fasntastic experience. I learned so much about the culture, food, customs, religion, economy and politics, let alone the languages, than I ever could have from just a vacation.

I hadso many memorable conversations and experiences with my coworkers at the school which really changed my perspective on more things than I have imagined. I also learned a lot about the education system in Morocco from teaching English there. I would certainly recommend MCAS to friends, and an extended stay in Morocco, one of the most beautiful countries on the planet, to everyone.

Thank you for making my stay an amazing one.
