Demand for English Teachers

Thanks primarily to its unique history and location, Morocco is a profoundly multi-lingual nation. Although Arabic is Morocco’s official language, and French the unofficial second language, the importance of English is rapidly growing in business sectors and also in the nation as a whole. In public schools, in fact, English language instruction now begins in fourth grade.

Typical English Students / Popular Teaching Destinations

As an EFL teacher in Morocco, you can help school-aged students improve their ability to communicate in English, or teach academic English to young adults studying at universities. There are also teaching opportunities among professionals looking to enhance their career prospects. Moroccan students are arguably some of the best learners—many are willing to make an effort, enjoy participating, and are motivated to succeed. And since many already speak more than one language, learning another is a familiar challenge.


Morocco Overview

With beaches and ports along the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts, the awe-inspiring Sahara Desert to the southeast, and the Atlas Mountains running down the center, Morocco’s geography is as diverse as it is magical. A compelling destination for travelers, the country is famous for its extravagant mountain backdrop, romantic cities, and thriving markets. Visitors to Morocco can take a camel trek, study prehistoric rock carvings, relax on a sunny beach, explore ancient architecture, or even ski the snowcapped mountains.

A mere eight miles from Spain across the Strait of Gibraltar, Morocco rests at the junction of multiple worlds. The nation blends African, Islamic, Christian and Mediterranean cultures to form a distinctive identity. The people of Morocco are primarily Arabs and Berbers who value ancient traditions, but embrace modern lifestyles. Moroccans are known for their warm hospitality, tolerant demeanor, and zest for sharing their customs with foreign visitors. In the national capital of Rabat, soaring city walls display its pre-Roman history, while the bustling current-day metropolis is filled with modern amenities. Further south on the Atlantic coast, the city of Casablanca—nicknamed the United States of Morocco—is home to 4 million people and is the commercial and industrial center of the country.
