The Pichilemu Institute of Language Studies is currently looking for a paid volunteer team member to provide support with teaching and customer service tasks this summer (December 2017 through the end of February, or March 2018).

THE SCHOOL AND ESL PROGRAM:

Our ESL program is a community-oriented project that has been offering quality and accessible classes for over a decade. Teachers on our team love facilitating learning and want to provide a great experience to everyone. We are a small, but close team who love what we do. Our students’ ages and levels are very diverse. Class size is small (one to seven students maximum). The school is located in downtown Pichilemu, and functions as a multicultural space since we offer both ESL to locals, and Spanish language classes to foreigners from around the world.

OUR COMMUNITY:

Pichilemu is an oasis of coastal living in the center of Chile. The Mapudungun word means small forest. Nature, countryside and history come together in this enchanting tourist town in Central Chile. Pichilemu holds on to many cultural traditions rarely seen in other parts of Chile. Despite the deep campesino traditions, modern life is rapidly coming to this town.

Pichilemu offers a variety of activities year round. There are many options for ocean activities, surfing being the most popular. Punta de Lobos, a World’s surfing reserve is around the corner. The town has long, dark sand beaches where relaxing while watching a beautiful sunset is a must-do.

School Director

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.

 

Preparing a lesson plan is very important. By studying this unit, I learnt how to effectively prepare my lesson plan and adapt it to my own needs and my students’. In fact, the presented methods in the unit are quite useful. Additionally, the mentioned qualities that must be considered in the lesson plan are absolutely applicable in order to make the lesson plan works effectively.This unit has taught me to build a lesson plan that can be flexible and dynamic, i have also learned to make sure that i keep notes of all that has been covered, this helps both me and if a cover teacher has to cover me at a later date to know what has already been taught during previous lessons. It has also gave me good examples of task sheets that can be used during the study stages.
