Teaching English as a volunteer 188bet世界杯 is a rewarding opportunity to instil basic English language skills in young Chinese students who are eager to learn from international volunteers. As a Teaching English volunteer 188bet世界杯, you will be teaching elementary and pre-school-aged children in government-run schools. Teaching English as a foreign language at an entry level is important to support students in learning best practices and pronunciation from the beginning of their English studies. Teaching placements are typically based in Weinan, which is an hour outside of X’ian, as well as in Xi’an or community schools in nearby villages.
The Teaching English project is well suited to volunteers with a great deal of enthusiasm, and a caring and patient nature. It is also important to be self-directed and creative to support your lesson planning and ensure you can be effective as a Teaching volunteer 188bet世界杯.
When volunteering on this project, you can expect to be either teaching classes independently, or working together with other volunteers and/or the school’s English Teacher. As you will be volunteering with the support of IVHQ’s local team and placement staff, you do not need to be qualified or experienced in teaching to participate. However, we encourage volunteers to come prepared by completing some relevant training, like a teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) course. Visit our Online TEFL Course page to learn how to gain an internationally-recognized TEFL certification at a discounted rate.
Please note that during July and August, schools will have their summer break, so during this time you will work on Educational Outreach projects set up by the local team in nearby villages and communities.
Special Needs Care
Special Needs Care volunteers are desperately required 188bet世界杯 to provide support within orphanages and care centers that are understaffed, underfunded and under-resourced. As a volunteer on the Special Needs Care project, you will work in an orphanage or community center alongside a small team of local staff, providing assistance to children, teenagers, and adults with a range of physical and mental disabilities. These community and government-run centers offer programs for children with special needs who are unable to receive an education through the mainstream school system, and whose parents cannot afford special education or focused care.
This Special Needs Care project is well suited to patient volunteers with a caring nature who are willing to provide support wherever their help is most needed. When volunteering on this project, you can expect to assist with daily operations within the centers, such as preparing food, serving meals, cleaning, and arranging games and activities for the children and adults. The most valuable contribution you can offer is providing the one-to-one attention that these children and adults wouldn’t otherwise receive. As you will be volunteering with the support of IVHQ’s local team and placement staff, you do not need to be qualified or experienced in special needs care in order to participate on this project. If you do have specialized experience in this field, the placement staff can learn and benefit greatly from your involvement as specialized special needs care is relatively new 188bet世界杯.
