Participate in this incredible and unique volunteering experience in Jordan with help from GeoVisions. This program gives you the free time you want to explore and experience the country in depth while you volunteer 15-20 hours a week coming up with creative ways to help teach your host family conversational English.
This is also a great program for people who want to experience life in Jordan and the Jordanian culture in-depth. The program has a focus on cultural exchange and host families are not only excited to learn English but also love to share the characteristics of their country, culture and cuisine.
Conversation Corps volunteers receive instruction on how to teach English, with specific activities for teaching English in a home to a family. GeoVisions includes a two-day orientation in Amman. Transportation to the host family is also included.
Duties and responsibilities include:
* Teaching the host family English for at least 15 hours a week Monday to Friday
* Come up with creative, fun and informative lesson plans
* Keep your room tidy and clean
* Respect host family's rules and habits
* Manage your own personal expenses (telephone bills, clothing, entertainment and spending money)
* Helping children with their English homework
* Play games in English with the children
* Create and teach educational games and activities
All GeoVisions programs include accommodation. Most include meals, airport pick-up, project training, in-country support, extensive medical and accident insurance, extensive pre-departure information and onsite project orientation.
Bible stories, lost cities, Lawrence of Arabia - Jordan has romantic associations up to its eyeballs.
Jordan is one of the most welcoming, hospitable countries in the world. Where else could you leave your belongings on the street for hours at a time and find them there when you get back? Where else do total strangers with nothing to sell invite you into their homes?
Participants will instruct their host families in English and must be native speakers. They need to have earned a high school (secondary school) diploma or certificate, be in good health and abide by the family's rules and habits. Placements are available year 'round and range in duration from one to three months. Participants must devote up to 15 hours per week, Monday thru Friday, for lessons and conversation.
