Hi Everyone,

Having spent time volunteering and working in Europe several years ago, I set up a small language academy in Leeds for adults who are studying English.

We`re now looking for volunteers in July and August 2018.

We`re looking for volunteers who are native English speakers, and who would be interested in staying in our flats with the students helping them practise their English. This could be speaking English with them socially and at meal times, assisting them in their volunteer work, or taking them out on trips to nearby places of interest. If you`re interested in seeing the area, it`s a great way to do it as we pay for your expenses.

In general, you will be completely free in the mornings, and then you will do a 5 hour shift either in the afternoon (2-7pm) or the evening (7-12pm).

You won`t be expected to teach any English lessons, however if you are TEFL qualified this is a definite plus for us, so please let us know.

In return for your help we can offer free city centre accommodation in Leeds, free wifi and free meals during the week - we cook as a group. We can provide some TEFL training and also you can sit in on our classes if you`d like to observe our teachers and get new ideas for lessons.

Both positions involve living in city centre apartments and getting to know lots of people socially and being able to interact with others (lots of people to talk to and different personality types etc), the work really isn`t hard as long as you enjoy meeting other people and have an open mind to the struggles they have - please don`t apply if you prefer isolation and quiet 24/7!
