What is this program about?

With Bali’s rapidly expanding tourism industry, the demand for local English speakers has never been greater. Children may have the opportunity to learn English at school, however this is usually taught by a local Balinese teacher and therefore children never get to practice their conversation skills or listen to native English speakers.

Balinese children are extremely eager to learn and love to teach. In this project, you will spend one to two hours each morning preparing lessons and around three hours in the afternoon teaching at a local primary or secondary school.

You will have complete freedom to decide what you want to teach, however, there is a general curriculum that you must follow and examples of what previous participants have taught so that there is continuity.

The objective of this project is to show students that learning English is fun and with creative teaching methods, through games, songs, art, sports and music.

You may want to team up with other participants, as two or three teachers in the classroom often work well to build trust and gain more control of the class.

Your role is to encourage and inspire, but the most important thing is that both teachers and students enjoy the experience.

We have all experienced good and not so good teachers, and through our project we strive to achieve the contagious enthusiasm of good teachers, with the specific aim of:

  • Light the fuse of lifelong learning
  • Enthusiastically encourage and inspire children
  • See that each child is confident and able to articulate in written and spoken English
  • Teach games and songs, showing that learning can be fun
  • Design creative teaching methods and effective lesson plans
  • The most important thing is that both teachers and students enjoy the experience
