Volunteer Teaching in in Ethiopia
Teaching in Ethiopia will open your eyes to the diverse nature of Ethiopia’s culture and its people. Volunteers teach English and a variety of other subjects in schools and language schools in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa, and live with local Ethiopian host families for the duration of their placement.
Projects Abroad places volunteers in schools to assist local teachers and to give the students exposure to English spoken by a native speaker. Often the teachers will have limited English themselves and you will be popular if you spend some time helping them as well. On top of this, you are likely to find yourself giving further informal English lessons to the members of your host family, who will be eager for you to learn a little of their own language in return, which is a fantastic way for you to get to know each other.
As well as simply teaching English classes, as well as classes in other subjects, you can also get involved in extra-curricular activities, from singing to coaching soccer. There are many other possibilities, limited only by your own skills and interests. Be sure to tell us if you have any particular interests in your application.
