  • Description


    We are urgently looking for English teachers to start right away!

    At London Live we are looking for teachers who want to come and teach English with us in Chincha, which is in the Ica district of Peru. Come to Chincha to work with us and you will have the chance to experience life in a working Peruvian city with very few tourists. You will see beautiful nature, meet the friendly Chinchanian people and try many delicious new foods and drinks!

    As an English teacher you will work with people of all ages from young children (3 years and above) to senior business people. This experience is great for building your CV and helping you to secure English teaching roles in the future.

    We have classes with the kids from March to November and each class lasts about 1.5h.
    For senior business people and private families we've got a special schedule.

    Our moto is that EVERYBODY can learn English if they learn in natural, real-life situations. So we aren't looking for teachers who just TEACH English or English grammar inside the classroom. We want our teachers to LIVE with the students during their class and to speak in English throughout the whole class. For example if we are studying nature we may take our students out to the beach, river and mountains so that they can learn English by experience.

    As a volunteer you will have a shared room (a maximun of 2 people), food to cook, drinking water, help with learning Spanish and tours around Chincha. You will work around 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. In your free time you can explore Chincha and surrounding areas such as Ica (for sandboarding and the Huacachina desert oasis), Pisco and Paracas (for beautiful beaches and the Islas Ballestas).

    All volunteers should commit to staying for at least 1 month. We prefer volunteers with experience working with children. You don't need to speak Spanish.

    If you think this experience may be a good fit for you then please get in touch right away, we look forward to welcoming you to Chincha!
