Teach and help. Language practice -german/english- in Craiova, Romania
We are an alternative learning center in a city of Craiova, Romania. Our learning centre is one of the few private education institutions in the city for children from 6-10 (school).
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Bilingual indoor and outdoor education is something of a new concept in Romania, and we would love it, if you could help us bring it to life.
Romania is a Latin country with a mix of Latin and Balcan influences. We still have a lot of very authentic rural life outside of Bucharest, amazing arhitecture of the 19th century buildings, beautiful parks in Bucharest. Very inexpensive travel costs inside the country and a very interesting history which comes from our very special geographical position: amoung the Danube River, former big Russia and the border with the former Austro-Hungarian Kingdom. you can have lots of "aha" experiences . Usually, the foreigners who come here for a short stay end up with a long one or come back many times until eventually they settle in the country. Very friendly culture.
Romanians are very happy people, happy to accommodate foreigners . it is easy to get around and conversate in English (on the street in general I mean). German and French are spoken as well here by both the older generation and some young ones. We can help with advice and means of transportation whenever possible if our guests want to travel and know the surroundings.

No previous teaching experience is needed. if you have experience we can pay a higher daily allowance. We need an energetic, though balanced person, positive and happy to interact with children both in the classroom and in the school yard and during meal times. Our children have regular English lessons but they miss the day to day informal conversations in all daily activities (not only in the classroom). We look for vocabulary improvments in daily rich conversations. During the classroom hours it will only be about their classroom activities and help with teaching.
