Our Story

Our Story

Safir is a transliteration of the Arabic word for ambassador. When you learn another language, you gain insight into how others view the world you become an ambassador, able to negotiate nuances in culture and perspective with empathy, understanding, and appreciation.

The Safir Company was founded by a partnership of Moroccans and American Peace Corps Volunteers who believed that the world needs more intercultural learning. That’s why all of our programs are centered around intercultural learning, from our Language Courses to our University Counseling Program. Based in Morocco’s capital city of Rabat, we are uniquely situated to help our students succeed in their studies. Our Moroccan language instructors have years of experience training Peace Corps Morocco volunteers in the native Moroccan Arabic. Likewise, our American University Counselors have years of experience navigating university systems outside of Morocco. We invite you to come experience our unique style of teaching and counseling, which focuses on collaboration, communication, and creativity.
