Volunteer TEFL Post in Tanzania
Date posted:2012-07-10 | Writer: Red Sweater Project | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Red Sweater Project has a position for an EFL teacher to manage an English Immersion Program between September and December. We work with local community members in the creation of affordable, accessible and advanced educational opportunities for children in rural Tanzania. The organization currently operates in Mungere Secondary School near the town of Mto wa Mbu, Tanzania. 40 young and bright children will begin Form I classes at Mungere Secondary School in January 2013, when further teaching opportunities will come available. Our students live in a remote Maasai community, where English is rarely spoken, and primary schooling is taught in Kiswahili. Yet, Tanzanian secondary school curriculum is English-based and the language barrier can be an obstacle to learning. The 4-month English Immersion Program is designed to develop language skills that will enable understanding and active participation during future secondary school courses.
