If you love teaching and being with children, experiencing Mozambique as a community teacher is something you will really enjoy! We have strong relationships with various schools around the area in need of teaching support and community leaders who would like us to organize english learning programs in the local village hall. You will be assisting local teachers to teach basic English by exchanging songs, and playing educational games. You may also lead the children through activities like handicrafts, sports, drawing, coloring, writing and more! A lot of the children here are quite young and require attention as well as activities to keep them stimulated in order to assist their growth. Be prepared to work for 4-5 hours a day on this program, teaching, leading groups, creating lesson plans and content for the classes. Feel free to bring teaching materials such as games, colour pencils, erasers, English language books, and even clothes and toys to donate! We recommend you also bring pictures or other small objects representing your country of origin, which you could also turn it into an educational lesson and broaden the children’s outlook! Aims &Objectives : Improve the English language of the youth of Mozambique, Give the children more chances at conversing in English, Provide you with insight into a different education system, Provide you with teaching experience, an invaluable life skill!
