    Description

    Are you an English speaker or native? Do you like being surrounded by nature? Would you like to help students from 8 to 16 year-olds to improve their English level?

    We are a friendly company that runs immersion camps in English, we are located in an amazing place surrounded by nature. Our camp La Toma del Agua is situated 7 minutes away by car from Riopar, a village near Albacete (Spain).

    These English immersion camps are programs that welcome groups of students from all over Spain. We look after them for five days (from Monday to Friday) and encourage them to improve their English through fun and active classes. This also includes physical outdoor activities, gymkanas and excursions led by bilingual and natives teachers. It’s a really fun place with friendly people, where you won´t get bored at all.

    We are looking for someone who can help our students, guiding them and helping them to improve their English.
    We offer accommodation shared with our lovely team and full board (5 meals).
    We can also provide special meals for people that have food alergias, intolarances, vegetariana.. and so on.
    There are bicycles in which you can use if you want to stroll along the área or even head to town.
    We have people who go to town often so you can catch a lift if needed.

    Workawayers help for 5 hours a day from Monday to Thursday. Mainly, you will support our team during those moments when we have to control the students in their free time, avoiding potential problems and playing with them while you push them to speak in English as much as possible. Our students are from Spain and they come with the idea to immerse themselves in the English language.In the case where you are present in an activity, your duty would be to support and supervise the students but not run the game.
