This program consists of working with students at various schools teaching English. We have strong relationships with secondary and high schools in the area. English is hard for the local students and villagers and this is where your help is needed most. This program is a great way to improve the English knowledge in the area.
You will assist the teacher during english classes and follow the school curriculum. You will be able to play games with them or teach them an english song. The main aim is to speak as much english with the students as possible.
