    We need teachers whose native language is:
    - English
    - Spanish
    - German
    - Polish
    - Chinese
    - Italian

    - have teaching experience in their native language, who know how to teach, and who understand their native language's grammar and can explain it to our students.
    - have highly developed communication skills. The majority of lessons that you will run will be conversation lessons, so you need to be able to involve EVERY student in the conversation and make it interesting for everybody.

    We take pride in our School and its cleanliness for our customers, staff and other volunteers. We expect that you keep our school and accommodations clean, this includes washing dishes right away after cooking and eating. You will share the kitchen and common area with other teachers or volunteers, so we demand that you keep everything clean to be considerate of everyone. You will also be expected not to make noise after 10 pm (no loud music or movies or drinking and shouting, no parties). These rules are strictly to be abide.

    What else ...

    There are parks and gyms, restaurants, bars, 2 pubs, shopping centers, movie theaters, dancing lessons (like salsa, bachata and others). It is not New York, but you can survive here :)
    The second largest market in Ukraine is here in Khmelnytskyi.

    Close to Khmelnytskyi (2-3 hours from here) there are nice fortresses (Kamiantets-Podilskyi and Hotyn). 3 hours in a bit another direction is the longest cave in Eurasia and the fifth-longest cave in the world (cave Optymistychna).

    Two nearby cities that are worth a visit are Vinnytsia and Ternopil (about 2 hours from Khmelnytskyi in different directions). Vinnytsia is the city of our president, where there are great fountains to visit. Ternopil is just a cosy city with good restaurants and a nice atmosphere.
