TEACHING ENGLISH IN CHILE

The English Opens Doors Program’s Volunteer Program, is a fee-free initiative from the Chilean Ministry of Education and is supported by the United Nations Development Programme-Chile.  The English Opens Doors Program is seeking native and near-native English speaking volunteers from 21-35 years old to teach English under the supervision of Chilean teachers in public schools throughout Chile, working with students from 5th grade to 12th grade.

 

English Opens Doors Program volunteers spend approximately 35 hours a week stimulating students’ communicative abilities in English using a dynamic teaching style, facilitating intercultural exchange, and generally making English fun to learn! While volunteering with the English Opens Doors Program, your students and/or alumni would have the opportunity to accumulate teaching experience in a developing country in a United Nations sponsored program, gain real-world experience living and working abroad, learn or better their Spanish-language abilities, get to know an incredible country with a wealth of cultural and geographical beauty, and most importantly to make a positive impact on an individual, national, and global level.
