We connect students from Belgium with a small group of 3 English teachers in Peru. By doing so, they can set up an education plan specifically tailored to their group of teachers. Teaching English to the Peruvian teachers is one thing, creating an environment in which these teachers and their respective students want to learn English is another.
Once the groups are formed, the project is set in motion. Remote Skype classes will be conducted twice per month by the project students, with a view of improving the English knowledge of the Peruvian teachers. The main goal is to help them advance, step by step, through cooperation. By giving extra tasks that they will need to complete by the next session, we make sure it’s a continuous plan with optimal results.
OFF TO PERU
The project students will then visit Peru for 6 weeks where they will observe, teach and evaluate what they have accomplished during the year. In the first two weeks, they will sit in on classes to observe our Peruvian teachers, providing feedback where they can. This is followed by our Peruvian teachers having two weeks of holiday, to which they will invest their time in learning more English and improving their teaching methods with the guidance of the project students. During the last weeks, the project students will observe and reevaluate the teachers.
