As a TEFL intern with us in Africa, you’ll fulfill your teaching practicum requirements in various unique schooling environments. These impact-driven placements will give you invaluable experience teaching English abroad while contributing to local communities’ sustainable development goals. Here are a few of the teaching projects you can look forward to working on during your TEFL internship.
Teaching English in Schools
As a TEFL intern, one of your major practicum placements will be supporting teachers in local schools. Working with kids of all ages, you’ll assist local teachers by providing one-on-one support to children who may be falling behind in class. Working individually with these students, you’ll review class concepts slower, helping kids develop a strong understanding of fundamental concepts. This work is not only an invaluable teaching experience for you but can positively change the educational direction of a young student struggling in class. You’ll additionally assist in lesson planning and leading engaging learning activities with students!
Teaching English in Adult Literacy Classes
During your TEFL teacher training, you’ll also have exciting opportunities to teach English to adult students. By teaching English to keen adult students, you’ll empower them to pursue English literacy with confidence, and in turn, support their ability to find meaningful employment! Each of our TEFL internship programs offers unique opportunities to gain teaching experience in various adult settings, including women’s groups, community classes, and even Maasai warrior literacy programs.
Beyond your TEFL training, there’ll be rewarding opportunities to volunteer in community uplift projects throughout your internship. Regularly supporting community projects wherever help is needed, these projects are incredible opportunities for volunteers, interns, and locals to learn from each other and achieve a common goal! In the past, our interns have assisted in beach-cleanups, distributing food to community members, and working in seniors’ homes, along with a wide variety of other community-led projects.
