We offer Host Family: (Homestay with private room) 3 meals daily: Living with a host family is probably the best and most effective way to become fully immersed into the language and culture of Morocco. All families are chosen after a careful selection procedure and usually live not more than 20 minutes away. Students have access to all living areas in the house and in most cases, will be expected to share the bathroom. All bed linens and pillows will be provided, however we suggest you bring your own towels.
Staying in a family is a truly wonderful experience and many students make lifetime friends with their host family. However, you should also have realistic expectations and recognize that an element of flexibility is required to adjust to the local customs, standard of accommodation and way of life of a Moroccan family.
