A language school in one of the most picturesque regions of Siberia – Altai Krai – is looking for an English native speaker for participating in our events for children (ages 7-14). With our 11-years experience of teaching, we are eager to improve and to make the process of learning English more interesting for kids.
Our city is a capital of Altai Krai, and though it’s not quite big, it is very nice and vivid, with a mixture of modern and old-fashioned buildings, young smiling people in the streets and lots of greenery. It is a good place to get acquainted with Siberian culture and hospitality!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
It is a brilliant opportunity to learn more about Russian culture and even more - about mysterious Siberia! . If you want to have an exciting and memorable experience, to enjoy beautiful wild nature and to meet truly open-minded, sincere people - we are waiting for you!
We are searching for an English native speaker to help our local teachers and ready to help in one of the activities on choice:
1) Our summer camp for children (ages 7-14) in June (7-20 days, depending on volunteer’s opportunities), no qualifications required, but any experience of that kind would be a good benefit! Among general tasks – making lessons for children, telling them about culture and habits of a volunteer’s country, playing games, participating in competitions and conversations, as well as helping our group leaders. The camp is situated in a beautiful wood, in a settlement near the city. It will be fun!
2) Our English classes for children between 10-16 years old, period – any time from September till May, for two weeks or more if possible. Experience of working with children or teaching is desirable. The main aim of a volunteer is to make children feel more confident in a conversation with a native speaker, to share with them information about the culture and habits of a volunteer’s country. We have 6 offices in different parts of the city, so it is a good opportunity not only to make a lot of friends, but also to see a Siberian city in all its diversity.
