Join fellow NAU students on a four week summer immersion program for non-  native speakers of Arabic to gain language skills and an understanding of the  Arabic Language and culture in an Arabic speaking context!  The Summer  Program in Intensive Arabic (SPIA) will take place at Moulay Ismail University  in Meknes, Morocco. 

Students will gain skills in five language areas: speaking, writing, reading,  listening and cultural understanding. Students will meet with conversation  partners twice a week to enhance their cultural understanding and improve  Arabic language skills. The curricular calendar, organized into four weeks, will  address a new theme each week assigned by the Arabic instructor. One lesson  will be covered each weekday, Monday through Friday. The textbook, Ahlan wa Sahlan, will be used along with cultural and historical excursions to meet the goals of this course.
