The Green Lion
If you love teaching and being with children, experiencing Zimbabwe as a community teacher is something you will really enjoy! English is a language used for communication worldwide, so by helping to teach these children you are giving them an invaluable skill that broadens their opportunities. You will be teaching in primary, secondary, or high schools in the Rusape area and will have plenty of guidance working together with local teachers while following their school curriculum. But it’s not always so formal, and in fact it’s the informal interactions with them that will have the most impact! Simply by having someone to practice with and prompt conversations in english, you’ll be able to help them work on their pronunciation and vocabulary. Exchanging your experiences and culture will be great way to open dialogue and broaden their worldviews…and yours too!
