Individual French Lessons

 
Our French language teacher Khadija teaches beginner's and intermediate level of French. She can also focus on conversation. Classes are usually held at her private apartment, where one room is equipped as a teaching room, but also at public places such as on the market, shops, museums etc, where you can apply your French language skills. Sometimes her husband is supporting her with French language classes. Khadija introduces herself in our video about Tangier.
 
For French language lessons with a focus on Business French, Technical French, and preparation for DALF), we cooperate with a teacher who also teaches at the Institut Français.
 
All classes are one-to-one tutoring with your personal teacher. Only when 2-3 people book together (who have a similar level of French), small groups can be formed. This makes it possible for the teacher to totally adjust her teaching to your skills and needs.
 
You may choose the intensity of the course. You book a certain number of hours and tell us in what duration you want to complete this. Part time would be approximately 10 hours per week, and 20 hours per week if intensive. The exact timings, you discuss with the teacher at the beginning of working out a schedule.
 
The teachers also speak English in addition to French.

Shared Accommodation in Tangier:

 
In Tangier, we can make use of two appartments which are shared by our participants. The apartments are located in modern buildings in the city centre of Tangier. All popular sites of the city, the medina, the kasbah, shops, restaurants and the locations of many volunteering/internship organizations are easily reachable by foot or using inexpensive small taxis.
 
The buildings are located in areas of upper income levels. We have choosen these locations, as they are the only parts of Tangier where even at night it is relatively safe to be on the streets, and also as the people staying in these areas are the only ones understanding the concept of "shared apartments", where several young people, even of mixed gender, are staying together in one apartment. In other, more traditional and conservative areas of the city, we would face serious problems with the neighbours, if unmarried young people share one apartment.
 
Each of the two apartment has 4 rooms; some rooms have two beds if you want to share. Kitchen, bathroom and living room have to be shared. The apartments are of high construction quality, have modern bathrooms, and functional furniture. Both apartments have wireless internet.

Tangier

 
Tangier, an attractive location on the Mediterranean coast with views of southern Spain, until 1956 was an "international city" that belonged to no country, but was managed by the French, the Spanish, the British and the Italians. Due to the special legal and tax status for those settled here, the city is not only home to numerous millionaires from around the world who built opulent mansions and buildings on the 7 hills of the city which still stand today, but was also a center of international espionage - two James Bond films are playing in Tangier. The international flair also attracted well-known international writers who helped the city become a cultural melting pot.
 
The English word "Tangerine" by the way is derived from the name of this city.
 
Tangier offers an interesting combination of the Arab-Islamic world - which you will get to see in the old town, in the everyday life of the conservative the Islamic middle class and of course, during your volunteer and internship activities - and European life, because many Europeans (mainly Spanish and French) live in Tangier.
 
Social problems, in the areas where volunteers and interns may work, include lack of care for marginalized groups of society, the problem of unmarried mothers and their illegitimate children, which is denounced by the traditional Islamic society, immigration from Africa to Europe and, increasingly, street children through the decline of family structures.
