What students liked about Dar Loughat - Cross-Cultural Language Center, Tetouan
I really liked everything. Everyone is very friendly and helpful ... all the time. The side offers (included in the price), such as excursions and conversation are interesting and also updated regularly, so I was really curious to see what would be offered the coming week. The option to use computers and copiers at no extra cost was something I did not know from other schools. I will definitely go there again. And also: great location of the school right in the city center.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you like the beach, you could opt for an accommodation directly in Martil. By group taxi, it's only more 10 minutes and it doesn't cost much more (either way, 5 dhr). In low season, there are are well-priced options (also via airbnb).
Other comments: During the long journey from my accommodation I always had some difficulties during the "dip at lunchtime" - when you cannot get home and you get tired. Even for that it was possible to lay down on the floor of a classroom with a blanket. That says a lot about the school.
Imen, my teacher, her teaching method, and my classmates were great !!! And the fact that we were few in class, allowing a faster progress and opportunities to practice more our oral production !!!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The list goes on .... but I'd say get lost in the old medina, drink at least one fresh juice per day, obviously a mint tea, eat a tagine, try all types of breads, pancakes, fresh goat jben on its palm leaf, bathe in the waters of the beach Kabila, a trip to Zarka, talk to people, trees, and cats etc ...
Other comments: From the arrival at the airport til the departure from the airport, everybody was available and listening. The teachers are wonderful, lively, passionate and also patient :)
Imen is an excellent teacher, school was responsive to all questions, open Internet access at school, fantastic leisure program, during holiday lessons get postponed to another day

Other comments: The only disadvantage of Tetouan Apartments and school: it is very very noisy by the road and due to the central location. Not recommendable for people sensitive to noise. On the other hand the central location allows single women to move around in the center and to get home alone during night as well.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the teachers I liked most. There was always someone on the spot when we had a problem and encouraged us in some way.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: In any event, future students I recommend to use the activities of the school because for the most part they are very good. And to get lost a few times in the Medina to know one's way around best in the end. ;)
Other comments: The school is centrally located in the new town and due to the helpfulness of the staff it is not difficult to settle in Tetuan and to get around.
I prefer to be answered in French. The chaleureuse quality of the welcome and the seriousness of teaching with psychological methods are attractive.
