British Council Morocco’s Paul Harvey explains what has kept him in the country for eleven years, and what the future looks like for ELT
Kasbahs, ancient cities, labyrinthine medinas, Roman ruins, deserts, mountains and very, very long coastlines – Morocco really does have all these things and … there are also two British Council centres. One is in Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city, and the other is in Rabat, the capital and an hour and a half north, both on the Atlantic coast. Casablanca is Morocco’s business hub, but Rabat has the feeling of a large town rather than a metropolis. I have been working at the British Council, Rabat for eleven years, initially as a full-time network teacher and now as a freelance member of staff.
