The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.
Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been
set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy (MMLA) Summer Language Immersion
Program is now accepting applications at our Vermont location for Arabic
About our program: Teachers are part of a community that creates an
intensive four-week immersion program for middle and high school students
each summer. Located on two college campuses, MMLA offers students the
opportunity to study Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, French or Spanish with
skilled language educators. Teachers teach grammar, language, literature
and culture through a hands-on experiential approach. All courses and daily
events are taught in the target language and a typical teacher will teach a
grammar based course and a project based course, as well as participate in
afternoon and evening activities, unless scheduled for time off.
MMLA follows the traditions and success of the Middlebury College immersion
programs and the Monterey Institute of International Studies curriculum
development expertise. Teachers are expected to participate in most formal
and informal events, and many will live in close proximity to students.
This allows students to learn the language by interacting in different
contexts and through diverse experiences. Whatever students are involved
in, so are teachers. This ensures that every moment is a learning moment
and, most importantly, that every child is safe, both physically and
emotionally. All staff and students adopt the Middlebury Language Pledge,
modified as needed for the student age group and language level, so that a
full-immersion environment is created.
Arabic Teachers should command a high degree of spoken and written
proficiency in Arabic, they should have experienced working with middle or
high school students, and should have the ability and flexibility to work
as part of a team. This is a residential position. All employees will be
provided room and board and will have scheduled time off each day and week.
All employees pay for their travel to and from program locations. Housing
