EFL Teaching Opportunity in Morocco

Date posted:2015-11-23 | Writer: The American Language Center of Oujda | Email: [email protected]

The American Language Center of Oujda (a nonprofit organization) is looking for dedicated and adventurous individuals who wish to teach English and participate in cultural exchange in Morocco. Oujda is a prospering non-touristic city just one hour south of the Mediterranean coast with a beautiful surrounding countryside.

ALC Oujda is a great place to work in a relaxed atmosphere while living and traveling in Morocco. The more experienced EFL teacher can excel with our higher levels, TOEFL classes, Business English and other projects, while developing teachers have a great opportunity to hone their teaching skills while advancing in the TESOL field.


Native level speaker of English

B.A. + ESL/EFL certification (TESOL, TEFL, CELTA or equivalent)

Teaching experience is a plus, especially someone confident teaching higher levels.


• Starting pay range for at least 15 hours of teaching a week, 5 classes, is from approximately 6000-9000 dirhams after taxes. That is about 700-1000 dollars a month, which is enough to cover expenses in Morocco and take side trips. The pay is based on an hourly rate and naturally higher if a teacher works more or does a special project or curriculum development.

• Housing allowance in addition to salary: 1000 dirhams, this is enough to cover about half rent in a private apartment.

• Flight allowance of 5000 dirhams toward flight upon successful completion of one year of teaching.

• Health Insurance (80% covered)

• August holiday pay

• Breaks between 10 week sessions for exploration and travel, often one to two weeks between our main 10 week sessions.

• Teacher development: National ALC-TEFL conference in Morocco, all expense paid.

• Moroccan Arabic course for expats (offered to anyone living in Oujda who could benefit).

• ALC Community Service Club, a volunteer association helping needy people in Oujda, and community building while strengthening friendships.


Interested applicants should send a short letter of introduction, C.V., and the scanned copy of the first page of their passport to the email address given on the job heading.

Thank you,

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


This unit was really challenging as well as educative. It was my first time studying the International Phonetic Alphabet, but for me, as a non-native English speaker, is really useful. Sometimes when I found a word on the dicctionary that I've never heard of was difficult to know how to propperly pronunciate, but now I know how to solve that problem. It will just require a lot of practice.All the information given in unit 2 is about grammar, parts of speech: nouns, adjectives, articles, verbs, adverbs, gerunds, pronouns, prepositions and conjunctions. Basically is what are parts of speech, how to define them, their subcategories, brief terms and where to place them. I found this unit quite useful for me cause it's super important for ESL teacher to know English grammar well.
