In this ever-globalizing world, the need for English proficiency continues to rise, and along with that, the need for exceptional language and communication skills training.
For UM6P and its ambitious strategy and partnership programs with world-renowned institutions, language and communication mastery will play an integral role in the students’, researchers’, faculty’s and staff’s success, and therefore, the overall University’s success. The need for exceptional language training is just as apparent in the national and continental corporate and academic worlds.
While the need for English mastery is obvious, the Language Lab is aligned with a belief set forth by Nelson Mandela, “If you speak to a man in a language he understands – that goes to his head; If you speak to man in his own language – that goes to his heart”. This is why the Language Lab is currently offering Arabic (MSA and dialectal), French, Spanish and Mandarin, and is open to developing programs in any language that our learners may need.
The Language Lab’s approach is client-focused and learner-centric, developing customized programs for each client (school, research center, business, etc.) and adapting them to the learner level (taking into consideration their proficiency level, learning style, interests and goals). We offer content-based learning programs for specific to industries and jobs (engineering, agribusiness, banking, etc.) as well as for specific purposes (public speaking, presentations, negotiations, etc.). Our learning channels are also completely customizable, including live traditional classes, flipped classes and teachers, virtual classrooms, online self-learning, or a blended/hybrid approach.
The Language Lab is currently a certified TOEIC center, and TOEFL is on the way.
Our mission is to develop the language and communication skills of Morocco’s current and future leaders through the creation of high impact, innovative and customized learning solutions
Our vision is to become a reference of language learning in Morocco, capable of responding to the needs of individuals, institutions and the society at large.
