Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! Teach a variety of subjects to children of all ages in a choice of schools, orphanages and social assistance centres. You can help with English, Drama, Sport, Maths or Music, particularly if you have an interest in one of these areas. You'll act as an assistant to the regular English teacher. Argentina is stunning! Many neighbourhoods have their own unique flair, such as the brightly painted houses of La Boca or beautiful Belgrano. Argentina is a vast country, from the subtropical north to the subantarctic south.
TEACHING IN SCHOOLS:
You'll work in a school where the children come from a mix of class backgrounds. You'll have the chance to help them with English mainly, but also Drama, Sport, Maths or Music, particularly if you have an interest in one of these areas. You will nearly always be an assistant to the regular English teacher.
TEACHING IN CHILDREN'S HOMES, COMMUNITY CENTRES & ORPHANAGES:
You'll provide basic English teaching through playing or singing with the children. They are starved of affection, and volunteering in any home can be challenging but highly rewarding. It will help if you have a basic understanding of Spanish, but it's not a requirement.
One of the Orphanages we work with is for children who have been “infected” with HIV (very few) or have been “affected” by HIV. Teaching at this home is entirely optional.
TEACHING ADULTS (optional):
Adult courses are spread across a variety of institutions and Social Assistance Centres. You could be asked to teach adults of all ages. Often class sizes are small and you will usually be in sole charge of the class. Teaching is available to adults all year round. Students here are usually 20 or older and are very eager to learn English.
You'll have plenty of free time during your placement to enjoy all of the attractions that Buenos Aires has to offer!
