The Teach English and Speak Arabic (TESA) Program provides visitors from all over the world the opportunity to live in the Palestinian city of Hebron and to experience daily Palestinian life while working as an Intern with the Excellence Center (EC).

As an Intern you will be provided with 3 hours of conversational Arabic a week. During your time in Palestine as an Intern, you will give some language classes and provide administrative assistance to the Center while at the same time that you are immersing yourself in Palestinian culture. Our program participants teach courses focusing on conversational English. Previous teaching experience is preferred but not essential.

As an Intern you will live with a Palestinian host family (availability permitting), and visit historical sites, local industries, universities, and refugee camps in the city of Hebron. The Excellence Center does everything possible to make our Interns feel at home so that you have a wonderful and enriching time in Hebron. You will truly have the opportunity to fully experience Palestinian life.

The Excellence Center is looking for interns all-year-round so you can freely choose when you would like to start and end your Internship. We are looking for people who can help our Palestinian English teachers in the classroom by participating in the discussions, exchanging ideas etc. as well as teaching 2 or 3 intermediate level conversational courses on your own during your Internship.
