Teaching English in Morocco

An entrancing nation in North Africa, Morocco has for long considered French to be its second language. Yet, today it is home to one of the largest North African English-teaching markets with several young Moroccans looking to sharpen up their basic English skills. Most of the people continue to understand basic French, the knowledge of which is often very useful in terms of networking and arranging for private lessons. For the ones taking an interest in learning the Arabic language, it is probably worth noting that Moroccan Arabic follows a dialect that is fairly different from what is traditionally spoken all across the Middle East with a marked influence of Spanish and French.

For first-time English teachers, the standard course of a job is by showing up for an interview upon appearing in Morocco; however they should bear the lodging expenses and airfare. Normal wages are on the lower side, yet the low cost of living allows the English teachers to have a comfortable living. Sharing an apartment with the expats or other English teachers is a typical practice. The normal work week includes around 20-30 hours of teaching that leaves a lot of time for movement and exploring. Teachers frequently give private classes to enhance their pay.

The major concentration of Moroccan English teaching jobs is in some of the larger cities such as Casablanca, Tangier, Marrakesh, Rabat, and Fez.
