Teaching English in Peru is a way to give the local Peruvians a doorway to the world. Peru continues to
grow in tourism and understanding English is a way to help build the local economy. Most young students in Peru simply do not have access to a great education. Many will never enter into a University program. When you volunteer in Peru as an English teacher, you’re offering the youth a more opportune future.
What’s great about this project is that you will have eager minds thirsty to learn. Your students will look forward to being educated on a global language. As a volunteer, you will also look forward to sharing your knowledge to an appreciative audience. While there are opportunities for students to learn English in Peru, many of them are far too costly or simply not adequate. You as a volunteer can give these children proper instruction that will have long lasting benefits.
No formal teaching experience or qualifications is required to volunteer in Teaching English project. We will however prefer volunteers who can speak a little bit of Spanish, as they will be able to communicate better with the children and the staff at the project. Volunteers are required to have patience, flexibility and enthusiasm for teaching English, as the mentality of the people will be very different from what you’re used to back home. During teaching, volunteers are expected to wear decent clothes, no shorts, sleeveless shirts are allowed.
Volunteers will teach a large class and will be assisted by other teachers. Volunteers will teach 2-3 hours per day, or even more if you want, and you’ll teach 6 days a week. You are encouraged to hold debates and discussions, as this will increase their ability to comprehend English better. Many volunteers have also been involved in extra-curricular activities like games, sports, and plays.
