We are a small language school based in southern Morocco. We're seeking graduate and post-graduate volunteers with an excellent command of the French, German or English languages - Native speakers preferred (opportunities to teach your native language is also available). You will be required to teach our cohort of highly motivated, enthusiastic students French, English or German lessons from beginners to Baccalaureate level.
Currently we are looking to expand to provide a variety of courses to our students, if you have certain skills (have certified sports qualifications) you think our young adults would be interested in learning - please speak with us to explore opportunities.
Taroudant is a very beautiful city with a wonderful Medina with many local sites to enjoy. Our home is within easy walking distance to the Medina and school, there is public transport and a cheap taxi service if you prefer. Taroudant is a great base to explore the surrounding areas, Agadir is a one hour drive if you wish to visit the beach and surf or explore wonderful deserts with a real oasis and Casbah at Tiout, there is so much to see and do on your days off.
If you would like to experience year-round sun, authentic Moroccan cuisine or discover the mysteries of the desert, then this will be a great destination for you. If shopping in the souk, or bathing in the traditional Moroccan bath-house
(Hamman) is more your style then you will really enjoy Taroudant.
At certain times of year you can participate in Eid and Ramadan with us, people of all faiths and religions are welcome to come and join our family. So come and enjoy the diverse landscapes and excitement of the Morocco culture.
