Meghan Watt, Anthropology

“Compared to a lot of other programs, I am so glad that I met this one. We even met students going to a university near here, studying Arabic, doing almost the same thing but not doing a homestay, not getting the same experience. This is way better. So, this place is awesome, you should come here.”

“If you’re thinking about doing a study abroad, anywhere in the world, I would have to tell you come here. I’ve done a little bit of studying in Kuwait, in Qatar and it compares nothing to what I’ve experienced here in Morocco, in Meknes at AAIN.”

“Just being here at AAIN, I feel like I’m a member of their family. AAIN has opened up its doors to us warmly and has embraced us. Their hospitability and kindness, dedication to our learning; I don’t feel like I’m alone at all”

“When I came here, I knew basically zero Arabic, I only knew the word for ‘No.’ So, from there, 10 weeks later, I’ve learned so much, like I’m actually able to walk the city and feel comfortable.

I love my family. I have the best mom, she’s an amazing cook, a sweet person and very understanding.”

“The truth was definitely what I expected. We learn more in 10 weeks in regards to Arabic than we had over 2 years of classroom study in Texas A&M.”

Amira Khemakhem, International Politics :

“The hospitality has been off the back and incredible, I’ve never felt more at home or more welcome and I can speak for all students when I say that. Every weekend was an incredible adventure. Even just staying in Meknes during the week, we always have something to do during the day whether it’s clubs or guest lectures which is a great way to learn.”

“Some of the most fun things we could do is walking through the souq and seeing how different they do things here. It’s really awesome.”
