For those who like to travel and would like to gain new experience living, studying a foreign language and teaching their native language abroad, Ukraine will welcome you!
We offer living accommodations and a language course (Ukrainian, Russian or any other language that is taught at OLA School) for those who come to teach their mother tongue at our school.
People whose mother is:
- Japanese (only teachers)
- Chinese (only teachers)
We are especially interested in volunteers who
- have teaching experience in their native language, who know how to teach, and who understand their native language's grammar and can explain it to our students.
- have highly developed communication skills. The majority of lessons that you will run will be conversation lessons, so you need to be able to involve EVERY student in the conversation and make it interesting for everybody.
P.S. If you do not have teaching experience, but you feel like you are the right kind of person and you can handle the challenge, our door is open for you :) Some of our best teachers have been people without any teaching experience but with a desire to learn how to teach and interact with students.
We ask you to teach 20-25 hours per week
WHAT WE OFFER
We have two schools in Khmelnytskyi city and in Kamianets-Podilskyi city, (both western-central part of Ukraine).
Kamianets-Podilskyi is a touristic place. It is an old town with population of 100,000. It has a rich history, paved roads and beautiful fortress.
Khmelnytskyi, on the other hand, is not a touristic place at all! Here you can experience a typical Ukrainian city. Its population is 270,000 people.
In Khmelnytskyi we have facilities to host five people at the same time. In Kamianets Podilskyi, we rent an apartment when we need it.
ACCOMMODATION in Khmelnytskyi
3 private rooms
1 shared room for 2 people
3 full bathrooms
An air conditioned common area
A big shared rooftop terrace
A shared kitchen
All rooms are located on the 4th flour in a school building.
On the 1st flour we have a cafe, on the 2nd and 3rd we have classrooms.
You can chose between Russian or Ukrainian (both languages are native languages here and widely spoken throughout Ukraine).
Instead of Russian or Ukrainian, you may chose another language as well.
Your language course will consist of 3 lessons (1.20 min each lesson) per week with a lot of home work :)
If there is no group with your level, we offer private lessons of 50 minutes, 3 times a week.
from 2 weeks to 3 months.
If you like it here, and if we and our our students like your teaching, we can make a work permit for you (only if you have finished high education) and you can stay with us for a year.
For those who are interested in this project, please send us your video CV telling us why you want to participate and why believe you are the right person.
