Presenting DMLC

In 1995, the Department of Moroccan Languages and Culture (DMLC) was created to provide quality language instruction that would help CCCL program participants immerse themselves in Moroccan culture. Since then, the department has gained respect for its courses and textbooks, and attracted over 300 students annually of diverse backgrounds from all over the world.  The DMLC provides and coordinates all language courses that are part of study abroad programs and classes requested by individuals that are interested in language and cultural learning.
The Department offers courses in Standard Arabic (Fus’ha), Moroccan Arabic (Darija), and Tamazight (Berber). Students can also opt for the Language for Special Purposes (LSP) which is designed for students wishing to study specific topics such as politics, economics, or religion in one of the three languages mentioned above. Classes are available for students of all levels, and range from one-on-one instruction to a maximum of 10 students per class.  Individual levels are determined through oral and written placement tests. In conjunction with its language courses, the DMLC hosts cultural events for all its program participants. Examples of previous culture sessions include lectures on current events and culture, music and dance performances, and Arabic film screenings.
