What will I be doing?

In your assigned Spanish school. The aim is that you aid in improving teaching and student communication in English for 25 classroom hours per weekfrom Monday to Friday. Students could vary in age from infant to secondary depending on placement.

General tasks include: Assisting in whole class alongside main teacher or individually with groups of students, helping with questions related to pronunciation and forming sentence structures, assisting with the preparation of classes or help to prepare complementary material/activities, for example dialogues, quizzes, reading exercises, games, audio-visual activities, presentations, preparing displays, helping with the preparation of oral exams, and speaking practice with teachers (helping the teachers of the school improve their oral English skills) or "speaking + reinforcing language structure with teachers (explaining areas of grammar and other complexities of the English language).

Complete a Free TEFL courseprovided by an internationally recognised Spanish University

With your volunteer host family: Usually each assistant lives with three host families (one per term). The families are connected to your assigned school and volunteer because they are really interested in learning about you, your culture and also a big positive is that you are fluent in english this can help them (especially the children) improve their English skills. Therefore it is important to bear in mind that this family will want to spend time with you during the week and at weekends. This relationship is something that makes this programme really special, and in return for your time you will be integrated as another member of the family and this is the best way to fully immerse yourself in a new country.
