Hi! We are an not for profit English immersion company based in Poznan, Poland. Our target is to raise the level of spoken english throughout the country by way of conversational english programs. Unfortunately, here in Poland the English education system is lacking in terms of teaching practical communicative skills and focuses more on theory. Our idea is to bring participants from countries where english is an official language together with Polish individuals of all ages in a fun, relaxed learning environment. We want to stimulate conversation in a natural fashion on topics that are interesting for each individual with personalized conversation materials. We strive to make learning enjoyable and highlight the fact that learning to converse in English will open the door for many opportunities in future employment and also in recreation. This is an invaluable cultural exchange where every individual will gain new knowledge and make international friends.
We offer you:
-A single hotel room in a nice hotel outside Poznań (usually Mon-Fri). Double hotel rooms for Warsaw openings and Youth Programs (you will share a room with a native speaker of the same gender and similar age) - 6 days (Sun-Fri)
-We offer a wage in line with minimum wage. This may be offset by part of the cost of the accommodation offer depending on local labour laws. Visa and insurance are your responsibility.
-An afternoon meet up with free lunch and drinks in Poznań (or Warsaw) the day before the program starts (Sun).
-Free transportation from Poznań (or Warsaw) to and from the venue.
-A reference letter for future employers.
And hopefully an excellent experience meeting people from Poland and all over the world!
What we ask of you:
You simply have to speak English on certain topics with our Polish guests. There will be several different activities every day; these change every hour to keep things fresh. The key thing that we need from you is to stay in "active conversation" mode for most of the day.
We hope to hear from you soon!
IMPORTANT NOTE: We do not charge Volunteers any fee for registration and participation.
After successful completion of the program the certificate of attendence is given, a reference letter may be given upon request.
As an English- speaking participant, your role is to help our Polish participants learn English. You will be taking part in activities such as one-to-one/one-to-two conversations, group activities, presentations, and social time in the evening.
To be considered you do not need to have any prior teaching experience but you must be an English speaker from a country where english is one of the official languages (ie. Canada, Ireland, Australia, India etc.) A short interview over the phone or skype may be required to ensure your level of english.
