Hello from Marrakech, Morocco!
If any of you have questions about Morocco or about the NSLI-Y program here, please post them here. My fellow NSLI-Yers and I would love to respond to your questions in depth on our group blog: http://alimarrakech.blogspot.com/ (Check out what we've written already if you want to get a taste of the program. Trust me, we're all having an amazing time!)
Also, here is another great blog by a program participant:
sbtravels.tumblr.com (and her pictures from Morocco are at flickr.com/photos/sbtravels)
Ask away! :)
Is your main focus Arabic or an even mix of that and French?
Thanks for the questions - :) the answer is here: http://alimarrakech.blogspot.com/2012/01/q-french-arabic-by-sarah.html
Sarah, that blog is an awesome idea!
Thank you. That was a very indepth answer:)
How much exposure have you had to the political scene in Morocco? For example the recent self-immolations or the protests. It is so incredible that you are learning Arabic and experiencing the culture during this momentous time in the Arabic world!
