Summer / Where We Work / Morocco

Morocco was called by the late King Hassan II “a tree whose roots lie in Africa but whose leaves breathe in Europe”.

Morocco

Perched on the northwest corner of North Africa, a 30-minute ferry ride from Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar, Morocco was called by the late King Hassan II “a tree whose roots lie in Africa but whose leaves breathe in Europe.”

Give us a call and explore the various summer options in Morocco.

Details

After a week of orientation, you and your team will move to the coast of Morocco where you will partner with a local university to teach English for about 4 weeks. Your students will be 12–18 years old and are eager to learn English in a fun, low-stress, environment so that they can get into universities in the future in this three-week intensive immersion class. Students stay for lunch at the school with fun activities or outings in the afternoon. You will hopefully work alongside local university students, creating an opportunity for cultural exchange and friendships with people your age.

Like the arabesque mosaics that decorate its buildings, Morocco’s Arabic and Islamic culture is an exotic mix of African, Bedouin, European, and Mediterranean influences that have melded together over thousands of years. You’ll catch the same fascinating mix of scents and fragrances at the doors of Moroccan homes and shops, owned by locals generous in their hospitality to wandering strangers. Relationships come easily in this North African culture with the Mediterranean feel, bonding in the classroom, over a cup of tea, or at a family celebration.

In 2014, Morocco’s Prime Minister announced that the country would switch from French to English as the primary language of instruction in higher education. Since that time, opportunities have been extended to ELIC to serve and teach in this beautiful and unique country that sits at the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and the Arab world.
