As ‘Teaching English as a Foreign Language’ placements, volunteers will be English language teaching assistants in primary, lower and higher secondary schools. These schools placements include public institutes, some Convent Schools run by nuns, and one Institute for the Blind and Partially Sighted.
Volunteers will be expected to help improve the comprehension, pronunciation and conversational skills of students. In some placements there may also be opportunities to teach other subjects such as maths, biology, art and drama. At some schools there will be the opportunity to help with school clubs, outdoor activities and homework.
