Traveling abroad and participating in humanitarian programs is the dream! Experience a foreign country and make new friends while also making a difference?
The Dominican Republic is home to some of the cutest kids around and you get to teach them! During your semester in the DR with International Language Programs (ILP) you will grow to love the kids you serve and you will find that they are each unique and hilarious.
Oh my, the kiddos you will be teaching can be C-U-T-E. But even if they are the most adorable kiddos in the classroom, they can still be sort of difficult. No matter where you’ll be teaching, knowing how to love the troublemakers will make your semester a whole lot better.
Topics: In the Classroom
International Language Programs (ILP) sends volunteers abroad to 10 different countries. In 9 out of those 10 countries you will be teaching English to the greatest, craziest, cutest and funniest kids in the world.
Depending on your ILP school, you may not even have an end of year performance … but if you do here are a few ideas!
Hey teachers! You're on the lookout for clothes that make you feel really cute, are really comfortable, and keep you covered up in all the rights places no matter how you bend or move. Oh and it's gotta be a good price, right?
Besides the construction paper and glue sticks in your suitcase, you should also be packing stuff to wear on vacations and in the classroom!
Worried about teaching your first drama lesson in a classroom of ILP students? Yeah, I was the same way. Hopefully these lesson ideas will help you prepare, which is half the battle!
Bit anxious about standing in front of a classroom of kids in a foreign country and teaching English for a semester? Don’t worry — that’s completely normal (and you really should stop worrying-we'll tell you why!).
