The children that come to these kindergartens are 3-6 years of age and there are approximately 20 children per class. During your time here, you will primarily teach english, mathematics, and life skills whether it be through songs, games, colouring and drawing exercises as well as giving them an opportunity to learn about other cultures. You will also be assisting local teachers in tasks and activities which are a part of the school schedule. By giving local children an opportunity to be with you, they can practice their english vocabulary and pronunciation developing their confidence and speaking skills. These skills will prepare them for primary school and their future. You will also have the chance to arrange activities for kids that do not have the opportunity to go to kindergarten, which can be held in community centers. A truly unforgettable and life-changing experience will be gained through an authentic taste of Mozambican culture from daily interaction with locals and children at the kindergarten. Aims &Objectives : Give the children more chances at conversing in English, Learn about the local culture of Mozambique, Provide you with insight into a different education system, Provide you with teaching experience, an invaluable life skill!
