A great opportunity for Arabic-speaking teachers with relevant work experience and an
interest in community education/critical pedagogy to broaden their skills! Become part of an organisation working to change the face of language teaching/learning. We also hold regular training and skillshare sessions.
Babel’s Blessing is a grassroots language school. We run low-cost evening classes in
diaspora languages, and use the income from this to fund free English classes for
refugees and migrants.
We think that language learning is about cultural exchange, community building, and a
way for members of diasporic communities to reconnect with their/our heritage. We teach about politics, culture and history through language as it is spoken – valuing street
language and varied accents rather than one ‘correct’ version.
We strive to apply critical pedagogy methods and principles across all our classes, and to
run as a horizontal and democratic community of learners. More information about the
project can be found on our website.
