There are many different options when it comes to Taa Marbouta accommodation. These can cater to different budgets, tastes, needs, and individual circumstances. We can connect you with host families so that you can maximise the chances of having a fully immersive experience in Tunisia, which can contribute enormously to your language development and knowledge of Tunisian culture.
We can also help you find short-term rentals, which are already furnished. These can be in the neighbourhood around the Taa Marbouta Language Centre, or in another neighbourhood that can be reached via public transport. If you would prefer to live with young Tunisians, including students, we can also try to connect you to the right people. The Taa Marbouta Language Centre is located in the suburb of Carthage, one of the safest, wealthiest and most beautiful neighbourhoods in the country. There is plenty of accommodation in Carthage and the surrounding suburbs of Sidi Bou Said and La Marsa, which are also where the majority of expatriates live. For those on a tighter budget, Carthage can be reached via metro/train from downtown and other neighbourhoods. When discussing accommodation it is useful for us to know your approximate budget, if you want to be alone or not, and if you have specific needs or preferences.
It is reasonable to budget approximately TND 1,000 – TND 2,000 per month for accommodation. Cheaper options are available but only if you first book a hotel or AirBnB for the first week and then spend that week searching for local accommodation. It is possible to find options as low as TND 500 in this case for longer-term stays.
