In this program, you will get the opportunity to teach basic conversational English and other subjects of your choice to children from different age groups with different capabilities. The project can take place either at a regular government, private or community schools for children.
Participating teachers enable students to form relationships with someone from another background and culture, and the teachers can learn different teaching methods and techniques.
You will be taking different classes on an average of five classes a day (each class would be about 40 minutes). The schools usually have a very dull curriculum, so out-of the box activities and creative experiences such as sports or games are more than welcome and really appreciated by the children.
You are free to use different methods to teach but you can use the coursebook as a reference or educate children through conversational and spoken English. During your time there, you can teach them different subjects such as mathematics, history, science, geography, computer, technologies, music and other subjects, arts and crafts, different educational games, spoken and conversational English, personal development, environmental awareness, general health and safety and so on. All higher education in India is in English, so it is vitally important that children must learn English to continue further higher education.
