MWTF is looking for more volunteer teachers for its free weekly Sunday language classes to migrant and domestic workers.
Every Sunday, languages classes in Arabic, English and French are held from 12 to 2 pm at Zico House in Sanayeh, Beirut.
These classes are very informal and are not in your typical classroom setting. The volunteer teachers are not trained teachers but dedicated individuals who enjoy encouraging the students to improve their language skills through conversations, patience and their own creativity.
During each class we aim to pair of two to three students with a volunteer teacher to work on exercises. The first time a new student joins we ask them to do an assessment. From then on they will have their own student file which tracks their progress.
Language classes are shaped by the students and teachers together. The volunteer teachers can help make the vocabulary and grammar modules. We also hold regular workshops to learn and share teaching and training skills.
Are you interested and excited about joining the team or trying a Sunday out? Do you have other ideas you want to share? Then by all means do.
You can join the language classes or come up with your own imitative with the task force.
