  • Description

    Description

    My name is Said I have 26 years old , married and I am from Imintanout a small and great city between Marrakech and Agadir.

    The school is founded basically to help all students and also the non-students in language learning.
    It is based in southern Morocco Imintanout a small town between Agadir and Marrakech. 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 - or just help the teachers - our cohort of highly motivated, enthusiastic students French, English , German or Spanish 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.

    Imintanout is a very beautiful small city with a wonderful local sites to enjoy. Our home is within easy walking distance school, 5 min by feet and there is public transport and a cheap taxi service if you prefer to explore more places. Imintanout is a great base to explore the surrounding areas, Agadir is a one hour and a half drive by taxi or two hours by bus if you wish to visit the beach and one hour a half too to Marrakech by taxi .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 the berber or Amazigh culture, 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 Imintanout.

    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 Moroccan culture.

    No previous teaching experience is required, but you will have a conventional, smart appearance and professional demeanor. Possessing a strong work ethic, you should be willing, polite and sensitive to the educational and psychological needs of young people and crucially, a non-drinker. Whilst it is not necessary that you are of the Muslim faith, a cultural awareness and understanding of Islam would be beneficial for your ease of integration into Moroccan society and your full enjoyment of the program.
