Like the arabesque mosaics that decorate its buildings, Morocco’s Arabic and Islamic culture is an exotic mix of African, Bedouin, European, and Mediterranean influences that have melded together over thousands of years. You’ll catch the same fascinating mix of scents and fragrances at the doors of Moroccan homes and shops, owned by locals generous in their hospitality to wandering strangers. Relationships come easily in this North African culture with the Mediterranean feel, bonding in the classroom, over a cup of tea, or at a family celebration.
In 2014, Morocco’s Prime Minister announced that the country would switch from French to English as the primary language of instruction in higher education. Since that time, opportunities have been extended to ELIC to serve and teach in this beautiful and unique country that sits at the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and the Arab world.
