1. English Coaching - Bahía Blanca, Argentina
What is the project
The English Coaching project promotes English conversation classes for adults.
What activities can you do
The position of an English teacher consists of having conversations with adults both in the classroom and in informal environments, such as parks. The proposal is for the volunteer to tell stories about their travels, their country of origin and their culture. The experience includes moments of interaction such as watching movies, playing games and cooking together while students have the opportunity to practice English.
What you get in return
Benefits include three days off per week, accommodation in a private room, access to a kitchen to make your own meals, free laundry, free tours, use of bicycles, language classes, certificate and ride on arrival.
Traveler Matthias, Germany, recommends the experience 100%: "I met a lot of nice people and the students were also great. I had a lot of fun!" He said. Another traveler who approved the experience was Cornelia, who said: "I loved every minute of my stay in Bahía Blanca. It was a great experience and I learned a lot, in addition to discovering a new side of Argentina".
