  • Help


    We are looking for volunteers excited to help local people learning English in my local area. Some of the help will be at the education center, helping the students practice their English, and some help will need with creating activities with teachers.

    Volunteers may be able to integrate themselves in this environment and carry out English lessons.
    Volunteers are also encouraged to get involved with other subjects and extra-curricular activities. Depending on your interests and skills, you could teach math, science, drama, art, and more.
    With some groups, you can follow the textbook, with others just practice their communication skills.

    Once a week we have two "Speaking Club" sessions in the morning and afternoon. The students will want to find out about you and the country you come from.

    In conclusion, the work included would be as stated above: teaching, delivering flyers/promoting the school, along with conducting the Speaking Club sessions.
