Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! You'll assist in non-government schools and other learning centres, as well as special needs school, located in Errachidia where you'll get a true Moroccan experience. The students come from different walks of life and backgrounds, but many of the students are from poor, agricultural background. Thus, the opportunity you provide for them to learn English is very valuable, because these children don't have the advantages that children in the more touristy cities have to learn from native English speakers. You can make a huge difference here!
You’ll work in a school in Errachidia and your role will be to assist the children to learn English or French.
The school that you'll assist in is for students between the ages of 8 and 20 years old. The schools usually have around 70 students. Overall the level of English is low, with the majority speaking Arabic and tribal languages. English is their third or fourth language (after French.) However, English is becoming more and more important to Morocco due to increased international trade and tourism.
None of the schools have state-of-the-art equipment, but they do all have electricity! You'll work as an assistant in the language lessons, teaching English or French. The school really needs volunteers and the students will benefit greatly from your help!
TEACHING ENGLISH: Overall the level of English is low, with the majority speaking Arabic and tribal languages. English is their third or fourth language (after French.) However, English is becoming more and more important to Morocco due to increased international trade and tourism.
TEACHING FRENCH: As Morocco is an old French Colony, French is officially the second language after Arabic. Most government work and business and other activities are conducted in Arabic and French and printed in both languages. French teachers are always extremely welcomed! If you’re studying French this is a great place to come and practice it. As a westerner the local people and children in the streets and at the markets will always try speaking in French with you first.
