Teaching English

Teaching English

On the Teaching English project in Dharamsala, volunteers work predominantly in rural schools and in impoverished communities on the outskirts of the city and in an English Language Institute (that was set up by a previous volunteer). Classes are taught to a range of ages, from children in the local schools (aged 3 to 14-years-old), to teenagers and adults. 

There is a large variety of teaching placements in the city and surrounding area, such as local schools, community centers, a drug rehabilitation center, shelters for special needs children and a women’s development centre. Tasks may include assisting local teachers with classroom support, organizing educational games and activities, setting up workshops or providing individual tutoring or independent lessons to students.
