The educational experience was great. The emphasis was on experiential learning which involved a lot of field work in different areas of Morocco. The experiential learning elements allowed us to both practice our Arabic while also learning more in depth about human rights in Morocco. I really liked living with a host family. It added yet another element to the experiential learning aspect of our program. Make sure to really think about what aspects of a living arrangement are most important to you and fill out your host family survey very very honestly. I loved my family and had everything I asked for on my survey. Living in a homestay really expedited the process of integrating with the local culture. As a woman, however, there will be elements of Moroccan culture that you won't be able to participate in. Meals at school and at home were good. It was also really fun to try Moroccan cuisine at local restaurants. It was definitely a worthwhile experience! My Arabic skills improved so so much, way more than I could have predicted. I loved Rabat and being able to conduct an internship in my last month.
