Description

Program Description

You can choose to participate in our teaching program at a local school in Lovina. The teaching curriculum consists of a variety of English-based subjects, offered in a playful manner to children from the local area age from 5-12 years. You can choose to stand in front of a class with other participants or alone. Usually you will teach a class with one other participant.

Each group consists of approximately 25 bright and cheerful students, who rather play more than learn. From Monday to Friday, participants will be surrounded by many children. Caring for them and understanding their behavior is a hard criterion to participate in this program, as well as having a good level of English.

The experienced teachers will find the freedom to be creative and design their own lesson plans and a refreshing change for some of our more mature teaching participants, who tell us it takes them back to the “good old days”. Those with less or no experience will have required support and guidance from our teaching centre, a relaxed environment matching the Balinese way of doing things, but with up-to-date teaching methods from experienced teachers.

The teaching plan will be confirmed every Friday. The program can change depending on the school plan/activities from the local students, weather and local conditions. The working time will be around 4 hours a day.

Besides that, you may also have the best time throughout your stay as you will engage in fun, relaxing and recreational activities held after a long day of your program alongside other participants.

Finally, you can not miss every single weekend experiencing nearby scenic views and historic places around Bali, especially ist pristine beaches and crystal clear waters. Thus, we will make sure to assist you in organizing your weekend getaways and enjoy every bit of your time
