You will be playing the role of teaching assistant inside a college.For this, you do not need to prepare a lot of teaching materials before hand, we prefer you to be spontaneous and creative throughout the day!
The students here are always keen to improve their English and welcome foreigners into their culture and to show you their way of life. You will regularly attend the classes and have maximum interaction with the students throughout the day. You will be able to spend your free time during the evenings and weekends with the friends you will make throughout your stay.
At the end of your program, you will receive a certificate highlighting your achievements during your English teaching program.
How does it work?
Each participant will have an English speaking language partner (or ‘buddy’) selected from Cunjin College students. This ‘buddy’ will be responsible for looking after the participant 24/7. Beyond the program, this is often a great chance to develop life-long friends.
How can you contribute?
You will not only participate in (English speaking) lectures – if you wish, you can deliver a lecture relevant to your own area of study or expertise.
Aims & Objectives
This will be your introduction day at the college. In the morning, you will be introduced to the college and you will be shown around. The afternoon will consist of you getting a feel of the classroom and determining your level of input regarding English teaching. This can range from being a classroom assistant to being the lead teacher of a class.
Tuesday to Friday
You will become fully involved with the regular activities at the college! Your schedule will look a lot like your buddy’s schedule.
On weekends you have the option to learn about how your students’ lives at home, and you may want to stay at your buddy’s home for the weekend. Or, you may choose to learn about Zhanjiang through a guided tour with your buddy! Otherwise your weekends are free time for yourself or any other activities you may enjoy.
