Arabic Language Institute (ALIF)

Subject Source: Local sources
Scope Note: Founded in 1982, ALIF has built an excellent reputation as one of the preeminent institutions in the Maghreb for the teaching of Arabic as a foreign language. Housed in a large, shady Art Deco villa, ALIF provides an ideal setting for studying in Morocco's "intellectual capital" and for exploring the historic medina of Fez, one of the world's few remaining medieval cities.

ALIF's teachers are highly qualified native speakers with years of experience instructing both independent students and study abroad groups from major universities. Former students include translators, Fulbright, FLAS, NSEP, and SSRC grantees, company representatives, and graduate students from major universities in the US and Europe.

ALIF resources include an extensive library collection focusing on Arabic linguistics, the Maghreb, Islamic Art and Architecture, and Islam. Our library also has a DVD collection with nearly 1000 films that students are welcome to borrow. The ALIF/ALC Bookstore has a superb collection of books related to Morocco and the Arab world. In addition to language courses, ALIF offers cultural tours, lectures, and classes on Maghrebi literature, media, and Islam. Private courses in any number of subject areas can be arranged. The modest ALIF tuition and low cost of living in Morocco render ALIF a cost-effective alternative for the study of Arabic abroad.
