Work: teaching English. Special Orientation program (lasts 2 days) will be provided in L viv, the teachers will be lodged at UCU Residential College. We encourage the volunteer teachers to stay for a day after the camp to say a proper good-bye to the students and do some more sightseeing in the city. During the orientation program the teachers get to know each other, there s team-building and basic instruction in the methods of teaching English.The Academic Program is centered on five daily classes, three in the morning and two in the afternoon. Since two teachers are always assigned to each class, they can help each other or do some in-class-tutoring.Besides regular classes we also have evening tutoring and evening activities. So, this is not just teaching, but also creating an English-speaking environment and a community of people who enjoy studying and spending time together. Detailed schedule can be send upon request.
