The Teachers of Critical Languages Program is a one-year program for Moroccan EFL teachers to teach Arabic to American students at primary and secondary school level. TCLP grantees are introduced to American teaching methodologies and are immersed in American culture and society for a full school year. While they improve their English language proficiency and promote understanding of the Arabic language and culture among American youth and local communities throughout the United States, they are teaching young Americans – and their families – about the nature of the Arabic language. The program includes TCLP-run workshops and professional development opportunities during the year.
TCLP teachers are cultural resources in their host schools and communities, may travel widely throughout the USA, and get to know Americans from all walks of life.

Eligibility Requirements :

  • Moroccan citizens currently residing in Morocco;
  • Have a bachelor (licence) degree or higher;
  • Have at least four years of teaching experience at the time of application;
  • Have a firm understanding of Modern Standard Arabic and strong English language skills, both written and spoken;
  • A demonstrated commitment to good pedagogy and a willingness to adapt to new and different methodologies;
  • Strong leadership potential; and
  • Have the personal skills, attitude, and motivation that will enable them to function independently and succeed in an intensive academic year in the U.S.

Applications are due each year in late November/early December through the Ministry of Education, which forwards its selections to MACECE for further review. Interviews of selected candidates takes place at the Commission in March.  Grantees then have a pre-departure training session and travel to the USA in late July.
