Teaching English in Tanzania
Even though, English is a language of daily uses, good English education is a dream for many kids. Many public schools (or even private school running in rural areas) are looking for qualified English teachers especially the native English speakers. Being one of the popular tourist destinations, knowledge of good English can open many doors for students. Therefore, your help will be appreciated. In theTanzania teaching English project, you will teach English to nursery, primary and secondary school kids between the age group of 6-16.
There is no specific qualification needed to join the teaching English project in Tanzania. However, volunteers are expected to be fluent in English. Teaching experience will be helpful (but not required).
Role of volunteers
Volunteers will primarily work as English instructor either in private schools or public school or schools run by orphanages. You will mostly teach English 2-3 hours a day (six days a week) in primary, secondary, and high school. You will also help kids by organizing games, drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative education and extra curricular activities. Some help in administration is also expected. You mostly work as a assistant to the main English teacher. In Tanzania, each school has at least one English teacher.
