Teaching English and Languages in Tanzania

In Tanzania we work with an NGO committed to providing continuing education in a rural community outside Dar es Salaam. The aim of the NGO is to reduce drug abuse and the transmission of HIV / AIDS by actively engaging young people in the community and helping them to gain vocational skills that will improve their employment prospects and take them away from illegal and risky behaviour.

The NGO runs an educational centre which teaches language and vocational skills. Although English is a national language, most Tanzanians speak their own dialect first and then Swahili. English is very much comes third. However, as in most countries, tourism is vitally important to the economy of Tanzania, particularly when you live near such tourist attractions as Mounts Meru and Kilimanjaro. Therefore a good understanding of English will mean access to more jobs and more opportunities.

In addition to English, they are particularly interested in having people who can also teach German, Spanish, French and Chinese.

You will be mainly working as a teaching assistant, taking out small groups of young people and working with them to improve their English pronunciation and understanding. Resources will be limited, so we recommend taking out lots of magazines and brochures. For example a simple travel brochure can be used for lots of different lessons on the weather, seasons, geography and role playing.

Note all projects working with children require a background check. This is an extra cost of about £10 but we will make the necessary arrangements. Parking tickets, speeding fines, and some criminal convictions will not prevent you from joining us; we simply check if you have any prior convictions relating to harming children.
