Language Program Curriculum & Schedule

We offer a variety of Arabic and Amazigh language courses to fit your individual needs. Within each dialect, there are four levels: Beginner, Low Intermediate, High Intermediate, and Advanced. While Beginner and Low Intermediate levels focus on the foundational elements of the language, High Intermediate and Advanced levels are conversational.

Learners are divided by level. Anyone entering Safir with previous Arabic or Amazigh language experience will be required to take an in-house LPI with a certified instructor.

Moroccan Arabic

Our Moroccan Arabic courses are designed for those who are looking to begin or advance their communicative abilities. Using the Peace Corps Morocco textbook, learners will acquire a range of useable knowledge that is directly related to their context in Morocco. Transliteration and the Arabic alphabet will be taught, although the course trajectory will move towards Arabic alphabet-use only. An LPI will be administered at the end of each level.

Modern Standard Arabic

Our Modern Standard Arabic courses are designed for those who are looking to begin or advance their reading, writing, and communicative abilities. Using the Al Kitaab series, our instructors will bring to life the academic content while bridging this language with its real-world application. The Arabic alphabet will be taught from the beginning and used exclusively. An LPI will be administered at the end of each level.

Tachelhit and Tamazight

Our Tachelhit and Tamazight courses are designed for those who are looking to begin or advance their communicative abilities. Using the Peace Corps Morocco textbook, learners will acquire a range of useable knowledge that is directly related to their context in Morocco. Transliteration and the Tifinagh alphabet will be taught, although the course trajectory will move towards Tifinagh alphabet-use only. An LPI will be administered at the end of each level.
