  1. what about the fees of tickets to get there?

  2. as far as I know, travel expenses are not covered

  3. and when the deadline for other session?

  4. not stated, please ask at forcc.net@gmail.com

  5. I just completed two semesters of Arabic..is it possible to participate in these sessions for me? I´m practically beginner....

  6. I believe yes, there are no requiremets set as to the level of language knowledge. You just need to show strong motivation. Anyway better ask all such questions at forcc.net@gmail.com

  7. so would it be 120 euros in total or are there other costs except travel expenses?

  8. That depends on your personal expenses. You'll live in the family, so you won't be required to pay for accomodation and board.

  9. This looks quite dodgy. The website is pretty amateur and there's no formal information whatsoever.

  10. Well, you have to understand that this is an NGO in Morocco, so they perhaps can't afford a professional website right now. You can't compare it with EU or USA organizations.
    This information was provided by Youth Networks: http://www.youthnetworks.eu/ShowOrganisation.aspx?Organisation=fcc
    Anyway please note that although we do our best to verify all info we post, we can't assume responsibility for the reliability of information provided to us by other sources, since we don't organize any events themselves and are not engaged in application and enrollment process.

  11. I wonder if this organization is trustful (or I mean safe to join them) and do there exist any source of their checking? If you can suggest?
