American Language Center
About the organization
The American Language Center of Tangier has been teaching English in Tangier for over 50 years. In addition to providing courses in English for children, adolescents and adults, we also organize and support cultural activities (plays, workshops, art exhibits, scholarly lectures, concerts, multi-disciplinary events) and community service programs and projects.
ALC Tangier is a member of the American Cultural Association, a private, non-profit educational and cultural service.
ALC Tangier uses a communicative, student-centered approach to teaching English where students are continuously engaged in skill development through spontaneous interaction with peers. Conversation allows elements of contingency and surprise, impulse and revelation to find expression naturally and meaningfully in real time. By creating clear and authentic contexts for language learning in the classroom, we prepare students for relevant real-life situations they will encounter outside the classroom.

Fun and effective conversational English instruction is our focus.
