Join Global Volunteers for one to two weeks and teach English in Crete, the captivating Greek island. Volunteers in Greece have the chance to help hopeful young students succeed in the professional world with English language skills.
You are needed to help children work on improving their pronunciation and usage of English throughout the year. Volunteer teachers, who are aided by pre-existing classroom materials and curriculum, don’t need any previous teaching experience, only general knowledge of syntax, diction, and idioms. Volunteer activities include informal language training, field trips, scavenger hunts, games, and more. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the coast on the island of Crete as a volunteer with Global Volunteers!

Now, as Greece is recovering from a crippling economic recession, elementary and secondary school teachers yearn to teach their students the language of commerce, technology, and opportunity. Helping them advance their skills in conversational English now is one of the ways you can invest in the future leaders of Crete. Specifically, you’re needed to:
• Introduce new teaching concepts to make learning English FUN.
• Engage students in skits, music, and lively small-group discussions.
• Design your own classes with Global Volunteers’ Teaching Conversational English Guide
Malevizi County provides summer school (June – August) activities for children ages six through sixteen, including sports, arts and crafts, and theater. Volunteers are in charge of these classes and activities. From September to May, volunteers have the opportunity to help out in the late afternoon or early evening in conversational English classes at three local schools. The students at these three schools are aged seven through eighteen and the older children are at the level of taking the highest English diploma exam. Here volunteers can aide teachers in class to give students the extra practice they often need to successfully pass their exams.
