The American Cultural Association (ACA) is the not-for-profit, bi-national parent organization of the American Language Centers (ALC) in Morocco, which teach English as a foreign language, engage in community service initiatives and promote cultural exchange between the peoples of Morocco and the United States. The ACA is involved in various activities including English and Arabic language instruction, teacher training, and a variety of cultural and community service activities at our centers. In the 1950s the ALCs were founded founded by the United States Embassy with the purpose of teaching English as a foreign language. From the 1950’s to present, the ALCs in Morocco have multiplied from just one center and bookstore in Rabat to now 12 centers located around the country in Agadir, Casablanca, El Jadida Fes, Kenitra, Marrakesh, Meknes, Mohamedia, Oujda, Tangier, and Tetouan. In addition, in 1983 the Arabic Language Institute in Fez was created at the ALC Fes. ALIF teaches both Colloquial Moroccan Arabic as well as Modern Standard Arabic to visiting students from around the world. The ALCs are a first choice for English language learners in Morocco and our student body represents every facet of Moroccan culture in both age and background and also includes people of other nationalities who may live and work in Morocco.
