  • Description


    Hi, my name is Amma. I live in a little town named is palopo. It is about 365km northen makassar. I live here with my husband and kids. I have a project to teach english for childrens in my village. Because i know that english is very important language. We can go every where if we can speak english. So we need volunteers who can help us to teach or practice english with childrens. The main activity of volunteers is to run an English class. 3 times per week and 1 hours of teaching per day. You are free during the mornings and weekends. The levels are mixed with 10-20 kids in each class. It is best is to have a few volunteers to divide the class in small groups. We are really focused on oral English; we want these kids to feel comfortable speaking English. Games and fun activities work well to keep them interested and help with their memory. If you are an artistic person, we would be happy to hear some ideas about how to decorate the classroom. A volunteer book is kept with all of previously taught lessons so you can have an idea of what the know.
    So i hope to see you soon. 😊

    Best wishes
