Homestay

The Homestay Department offers participants special insight into Moroccan society through experiencing daily life, customs, values, and language. To live with a family is an intensive and rewarding cross-cultural experience through which you are given the opportunity to participate in meals, conversation, and daily activities. There is no better way to learn and improve your knowledge about a culture and a language than to live with a family and experience daily life first-hand.

Our department works with a network of over 150 families to offer homestays in Rabat and village stays throughout Morocco. Most host families have volunteered their homes, motivated by the idea of building cross-cultural friendships. They do not see their home as a hotel. Most families want to get to know you as a person and hope to continue the friendship after the homestay. Host families are carefully selected and screened; some have hosted students before, but for others it is a first-time experience. You will be received as a member of the family and involved in the daily activities of that family, which often include attending family parties, visiting relatives, going to the movies with a host sibling, enjoying long dinners, socializing with the neighbors over Moroccan tea, and exploring medina souks, sites, and city centers together.

Participants in CCCL Arabic Classes and Study Abroad programs can elect to spend their time in Rabat with a family. Homestay packages generally include room and meals, and are an affordable alternative to other housing options in Rabat. The minimum period of stay with a family is one week.
