“6 wonderful and intensive days culminating in an unforgettable educational experience” is what you will have when you immerse yourself in an English Immersion program.
If you are a native English Speaker and are a person who loves to teach, share, be a role model, learn or develop new friendships you may want to look into participating in one of these programs.
Yes, it is 6 days. Yes, it can be intensive. Yes, you will be speaking English from 9 in the morning until 9 in the evening … but you speak English all day anyway so what is the difference?
Do I need to have experience teaching .. no. The program is laid out for you and it is directed at the learning opportunity for the local speaker. If you can follow written directions or are not shy about asking a question you can do this.
A social time is available in the evenings for charades, playing pool or cards, karaoke, or other types of entertainment. If you enjoy fun and games you will like this!
The difference is that you will be meeting other English speaking travelers from Britain, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, and the US. People from all walks of life and all ages with different skill sets, opinions, experiences … and all willing to share what they know.
For instance, we (from the US) learned that there is a formal and prior agreement between the US and Poland that allows us to stay in Poland and additional 90 days beyond the Schengen time limit. We were stoked!!!
So, what’s in it for you (WIIFM)? 5 nights at a 4 or 5 star resort; the opportunity to meet enthusiastic local people who really want to improve their English. You will hear stories of people’s lives, play games, learn things about the country that you did not know, eat local foods and make new friends. I met local doctors, a woman who owned a rehab center, a cosmetic company owner, online entrepreneurs, sales manager for a large telecom and a port authority manager.
Today I write to you from a golf resort in the Czech Republic where I am joined by 2 of my Poznan English speakers and new Czech learners.
Are you interested? Will you be traveling in Poland, Hungary, Romania, or the Czech Republic? Then go to ANGLOVILLE and sign up! As a bonus .. in the Angloville program you have the opportunity to get your TEFL certification.
And what does it cost? Just your time!
You are responsible for getting to the city where you will meet your group/leader. During the program at the location your room and meals are all comp’d but any alcohol or extras are your responsibility.
If you are traveling in Spain go to VaughanTown; or, if you want to teach in Spain or Germany go to Diverbo and sign up.
Happy Trails to you … until we meet again
