As English is the most spoken language in the world, knowledge of English can afford one greater opportunities in life. Of the utmost importance to learning a new language is immersion. There are many who would like to develop their English language speaking skills yet not all have access to opportunities that provide them with an immersive environment, an environment where, for the most part, solely English is spoken. An environment that gives them the opportunity to speak with native English speakers.


For this reason, NG Peru has created its “Conversation Class Program”. The “Conversation Class Program” provides adults within the community the opportunity to develop their conversational English skills in a relaxed, immersive environment and receive real-time feedback regarding their conversational skills.


We are currently recruiting volunteers to teach in this and our 2019 English School Program.




General Objectives

  • Participants practice English with advanced English speakers, becoming acquainted with a plethora of accents
  • Improve participants’ conversational skills to increase their access to opportunities: escape poverty, improve within their jobs (many participants work in tourism), give them the opportunity to apply for programs abroad

  • International experience working with worldwide volunteers
  • Teaching experience
  • Strong curriculum provided
  • Weekly meeting with all of the staff

Description of Work

  • Lead classes in the late afternoon/evening

Volunteering in the “Conversation Class” Program

Perhaps after a morning of teaching in the schools and a free afternoon, you lead a conversation class in the evening. Conversation classes last for an hour and a half, generally from 7:30pm to 9:00pm at the Casa with adults who are eager to develop their conversation skills, discussing the topic and questions you have provided, writing out new vocabulary and concepts on the board, providing feedback, and getting to know people from the community.


(This is an example scenario. Actual schedules may vary.)
