English Language Teaching Profile: Morocco.
British Council, London (England). English-Teaching Information Centre.
This is a summary in outline form of the English language teaching situation in Morocco. Arabic is the official language of the country, and French is the second language of the educated section of society. English is not used as a medium of communication or as a medium of instruction, except in isolated cases at highest postgraduate level. However, the English language is presently very much in favor and the government is anxious to encourage English teaching. The following topics are discussed in this profile: (1) the role of English; (2) English within the education system (classes, syllabi and tests at the secondary and college levels, the Inspectorate, and English for Special Purposes); (3) the teaching cadre (the supply of native and foreign teachers, teacher qualifications and the two teacher training facilities); (4) teaching materials (textbook choices and availability of books); (5) English outside the educational system (private, commercial schools); and (6) British and American support for the teaching of English. In addition, bibliographic citations are provided for four recent reports relevant to EFL (English as a foreign language) in Morocco. (CFM)
