I am a university student from Toronto, Canada with a major in English and dreams of becoming an ESL teacher (and will be graduating end of this year)! I started volunteering as a Workawayer two years ago and would like to do it every year!
Most of the projects that I have been helping with are language teaching at schools and summer camps, curriculum planning, leading group activities and games, playing with kids, and helping around the house. Apart from the serious "work", I love to do something interesting with my hosts, such as testing different recipes, cooking together, cycling, hiking, playing soccer and basketball, and even rope climbing challenge! When volunteering at local schools, I enjoyed playing language games and having meaningful conversations with students. I think that the best way to engage students into their lesson is to have fun with them and become a part of them!
Other than that, I would be very happy to discover some new hobbies! Recently, I have been very fond of decorating and reshaping my bikes (it used to be a popular street-culture in my home city- Hong Kong around 90s-2000s, feeling a bit nostalgic). I am also trying to learn Spanish and Polish (and maybe French!). If you have other ideas about what we could enjoy and explore together, please let me know!
See you soon!
