The Lessane Arabi Center was founded by Salim El Jeddaoui in 2015. Salim draws on his own experiences of studying abroad (in France, Egypt, and Syria), creating a school that addresses the educational and practical needs of the modern student of Arabic.

We are located in the bustling city of Marrakesh, in the quiet, leafy neighbourhood of Arset Sbaai. This location will allow you to study in peace, while both the trendy shops and cafes of Gueliz and the picturesque Medina (Old Town) are a stone’s throw away!

Our teachers all have university degrees in teaching Arabic as a foreign language and years of teaching experience. We screen prospective teachers carefully and monitor student satisfaction to ensure we always offer the highest quality of education.
