Experience Mexico as a "non-tourist" - for one to two weeks. Volunteers practice English in small groups with college students. The purpose is on for the students to learn conversational English, not grammar, so virtually anyone can be of service. Each class follows a syllabus and uses texts which guide the volunteers through daily lessons. Team members often add examples from their personal lives to liven up the conversations.
As with all Global Volunteers' English conversation classes, each volunteer instructs a class for four to six hours a day, and has the rest of the day to get ready for class and team meetings. Plenty of time is available to explore cultural and educational landmarks in the host community.
