  • Description

    Description

    We seek volunteers with teaching experience or who are willing to have a go! We are a small, friendly and still very young institute where your contribution will have a substantial impact on the lives of your students. At any time we host a handful of volunteers in addition to our group of regular local teachers, and are always looking for fresh faces to join our little community here! We teach classes to small groups of adults, children and teenagers, with most groups having 4 to 6 students per class. We follow textbooks from major publishers, but teachers have a lot of autonomy in how they teach their classes.

    We are interested in introducing new cultures to our students to open up their minds towards not only the language, but also towards the people who speak it.
