OVERVIEW : Teach at a local primary or secondary school in rural areas of Northern Peru! Your main objective will be to plan and conduct fun classes to help the children learn English, a skill that will prove invaluable as they get older and help local communities. As this area of Peru is slowly becoming a popular tourist destination, locals could create jobs for themselves instead of tourism getting taken over by international companies the way it has happened in other areas of Peru. — PROGRAM DESCRIPTION : During this program, you will be teaching at local primary or secondary schools in nearby villages, all of which are within a 30 minute drive from the accommodation. You will be driven to the school each morning on a minibus. You can conduct classes in varied and dynamic ways, with activities such as games, dramas, songs, and movies that will help the students learn English in a fun way! Your input at these schools is invaluable to support the language learning of local Peruvian children. — AIMS &OBJECTIVES : Help locals to overcome the language barrier and increase their future prospects, Inspire children to learn both written and spoken English through creative teaching methods, Give you practical experience in teaching as well as a unique experience of local Peru, Assist the program staff with extra hands.
