If you are looking for an alternative kind of intensive Arabic program then look no further than our Teach English and Learn Arabic Program TELA. We offer professional Arabic classes for people who are committed to working hard and learning the Arabic language.

Teaching in Palestine will provide you with the opportunity to learn about this fascinating country and its people. This experience is available to anyone with an interest in helping others to learn the English language. You do not need to have any previous teaching experience and we do not require you to take a TEFL course. Whether you want to volunteer during your gap year career break or as a volunteer vacation you will have an important role to play and your efforts will be greatly appreciated.

Participants will take courses in spoken Arabic for 3 hours per week in a professional setting and with a curriculum that has been designed to compliment the Arabic immersion experience where you are using the vocabulary and other skills you learn on a daily basis. At the current time lessons will be at a basic beginner to lower intermediate level and will progress over time. This approach will help you to learn to speak Arabic more quickly as you will volunteer in a Arabic speaking environment.

We do work hard at La Casa and applicants should be ready to apply themselves fully to their volunteer positions as do the other international volunteers. That said there is time at evenings and weekends to relax experience Palestine and visit nearby cities such as Bethlehem Jerusalem Jericho and Ramallah.

The program usually runs for 4 or 8 weeks but is not limited to 8 weeks volunteers are more than welcome to stay and volunteer for longer. There is a fee associated with the program which covers housing and Arabic classes.

Please e-mail your resume CV to LaCasaLearningCenter@gmail.com and reference the program title in the subject line.
