We are a language school in the city of Kemerovo. Our school provides English language classes for children, students and adults. We also teach Medical English to doctors.
Kemerovo is not big but it is the place that attracts tourists from different parts of the world. It is located in the centre of Siberia, Russia. We can boast best skiing resorts for those who love skiing and snowboarding and rather mild climate (in recent years). But we have snow here in Kemerovo up to April. Kemerovo stands on the river and is surrounded with thick Siberian forest (called taiga here). Thus the air is nice and fresh and the nature is beautiful. There are several universities in the city that is why you can meet a lot of young people. We have a few theatres, a concert hall, lots of museums as well bars and night clubs. At the moment we are eager to make our team more international, thus we are welcoming volunteers who are able to teach and to participate in our events. Our location is convenient, we are in the heart of the city and it is quite easy to get to us from any part of Kemerovo. We also have an opportunity to show our guesst around our countryside.
The volunteering students will have a chance to enrich their crosscultural knowledge, get to know the history and traditions of out ancestors. Kuzbass has a rich history, it is a place where different tribes had settled many years before us and there one can even find rock carvings preserved and displayed in our open air museums. Thus, if our guest is interested in history, ancient craft he or she will get a unique opportunity to benefit from it. The students will certainly taste our national cuisine and take part in different youngsters' conventions. There is also an opportunity for them to learn Russian and we are ready to help them get this skill. What is more, they will be able to learn (or master in) how to teach English to foreigners and we will definitely support them. They could spend their free time trying our national outdoor as well as indoor sports.
We would like our foreign guest to have a good command of English (B2 + - C1) so as to be able to teach this language at different level (other languages are also appreciated). Russian speaking skill is not necessary. We are sure to offer accomodation and provide food. At the same time we expect active participation in the cultural life of our students and a will to contribute to the work of our organization as a person who can represent his or her own culture and traditions and is able to share this experience.
The coming guest will get an accomodation in a family, these are friendly and hospitable people.
We are people who like receiving guests a lot and we usually try to make them live an active life. We are fond of good food and going to the country and camping on weekend.
