The Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) aims to strengthen Arabic foreign language instruction by establishing a native speaker presence at U.S. educational institutions. Both public and private school teachers of English can apply for the FLTA Program. Public school teachers must apply through their academies of the Ministry of Education. Private school teachers apply directly to MACECE.
The program enables young educators to improve their teaching skills by serving as teaching assistants or primary teachers of Arabic in an American university. It also allows them to engage in non-degree studies by taking at least two courses per semester.  FLTAs experience American life at many levels, in communities and universities and colleges throughout America.
Applicants must be teachers of English or in training to become teachers of English. They must have at least a Bachelor degree (licence), and a teaching experience  of no less than one academic year and no more than seven years. Candidates are pre-selected and then interviewed by a MACECE Selection Committee in Rabat. Final selection and university placements take place in  the USA.

In addition to teaching Arabic language, FLTAs often called upon to be:

– leaders in university Arabic conversation groups ;

– cultural representatives of Morocco, the Arab World, and Islam;

Each host university tailors the Assistantship to fit its own language teaching needs.

– guest speakers in courses around the university and in the community;

– supervisors of language clubs, language houses, and language tables.
