We're looking for driven and passionate individuals to teach English to children on our primary and secondary programmes. This internship is suitable for those who are new to teaching, for example those on year abroad travel programmes, and those with more experience teaching English. We usually have around eight English teachers, both interns and volunteers, working in a local public school and in classes at our centre under the supervision of an EFL qualified English teaching Leader. We teach kids English in a dynamic way and so lessons are activity-based and interactive. Following a written curriculum, interns will plan and deliver lessons with a co-teacher, using lots of games and songs to to keep the children engaged in learning English
