Description

We’re a private language school in Spain teaching English to Spanish students of all ages, from very small children to mature learners in their fifties and sixties.

We are looking for native English speakers who can volunteer half an hour or so of their time every now and again to speak with small groups of our students via Zoom. This is a pilot project for us and if it works well we would like to continue on with it.

The standard of English of our students is commensurate with their age. You can choose which age group you would like to chat to, how long you would like to chat for, and, depending on the timetable of classes for that particular age group, what day you join us.

No teaching is required, or even correcting speech. A teacher (fluent in English) will always be present. This is purely to give the students experience of chatting with native English speakers of all ages from all over the UK about everyday things.

All that we ask of you is that you are a native English speaker (very important, please) of adult age and that you have a clear speaking voice with a neutral accent; that you are bright, cheerful and enthusiastic and can keep a conversation going with several students at once. Our class sizes are maximum 8 students.

We have classes going on all day Monday to Friday from 10:00, but the main bulk are between 15:30 and 21:00 hrs Spanish time (an hour ahead of UK time). Students are back in the classrooms following the first wave of Covid, but as we are well into the second wave here in Spain, we're now set up to have them connect into class from their homes via Zoom if we have to close the school again.

There is no commitment required from you beyond the first session, so if you decide it's not for you or you just want to do it once, that's no problem at all. We hope to get a group of volunteers together that we can call on for different classes and have these chats form part of the students' learning.

If this is something you might be interested in, drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you.
