Teaching in Buenos Aires
Working alongside local teachers you will become integrated into daily life, enjoying local delicacies such as cheese and meat pastries, or chicha, the sacred corn drink of the Incas. In your evenings you can try learning some dance moves such as the tango, the national dance, with your Argentine colleagues or brush up on your conversational Spanish. Visit a country steeped in mystery and take a piece of the culture home with you in the form of lifelong friendships.
WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?
In an ever-shrinking world, the need for multilingual individuals is greater than ever. To help rid the world of poverty and inequality, it is essential that underprivileged communities benefit from improved levels of education. Volunteers play an important role in strengthening the understanding and cooperation between cultures, crucial to moving forward as a global community. Learning another language, sharing your experiences, and helping those less fortunate will leave a lasting legacy to the world and ensure that the common goal of international development can occur.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
Teaching English as a foreign language to sometimes underprivileged and impoverished children on a daily basis is as rewarding and enjoyable for you as it is for them. By teaching these children, you are equipping them with the tools they need to liberate or prevent themselves from entering the cycle of deprivation that they may be held in. You will work for approximately four hours a day in primary and secondary schools, with enough free time to absorb the fascinating sights and sounds of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. Your pupils will benefit hugely from the interactive and fun teaching style that TEFL training introduces. Completing your practical training in Argentina contributes to an achievement that will last you a lifetime and potentially lead to other exciting and valuable opportunities.
