THE GREEN LION PHILIPPINES
We have noticed that the children within the community don’t have much chance to learn or practice the use of English. That’s where you can help! You may find yourself contributing to a primary, secondary or high school in and around the municipality of Aborlan on Palawan Island. This means your potential students could range from grade 1 to grade 12 and are between the age of 7-18. The teaching program is organized as an informal English class which allows you to arrange a variety of activities such as music, songs, playing games, arts, sports, conversation exercises and grammar exercises. Get creative but always keep in mind that everything should be based on teaching practical English for everyday situations in a fun and engaging way! An important component of this program is the cultural exchange that will occur. The children at the school are always very interested and keen to learn more about your family, country, culture and way of life. Therefore, we highly encourage you to bring a lot of pictures from home as they will be very much appreciated by the kids!
