American Cultural Association / American Language Center Marrakesh
The American Cultural Association (ACA) is the not-for-profit, bi-national parent organization of the American Language Centers (ALC) in Morocco, which teach English as a foreign language. With 12 ALCs around the country, the ACA can boast a work force of more than 300 teachers and approximately 200 administrative support and staff members made up of many nationalities and people of of all ages. The American Language Centers are the first choice for English language learners in Morocco and our student body represents every facet of Moroccan culture in both age and background and also includes people of other nationalities who may live and work in Morocco. The reason for this diversity is that the ALCs attract the best in teachers and students alike by offering truly unique experiences to both.The American Langauge Center of Marrakesh, housed in two villas in the Gueliz district of the city, has been serving the Marrakesh community since 1970. We provide courses in communicative English for tots (5-6 years old), children (7-10 years old), juniors (11-15 years old) and adults (16 years and up). We also host a small bookstore, a lending library, two student cafés, and a computer lab. ALC Marrakesh is a certified TOEFL testing center for the south of Morocco. We regularly hold the Via Lingua TEFL teacher training certification program (130-hour course), have weekly clubs and monthly events, and participate in community service activities and cultural events, such as programs with visiting students from the United States and elsewhere.
