WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?

In an ever-shrinking world, the need for multilingual educated individuals is greater than ever. To help rid the world of poverty and inequality it is crucial that people in the West reach out to underprivileged communities. Volunteer teachers who travel to all corners of the world expose students to the benefits of a true multicultural education whilst offering them friendship and guidance. With a cultural and linguistic exchange such as this the gap dividing the rich from the poor and developed from developing countries will diminish, leaving a true global community.

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Starting early in the morning you will begin your days by teaching an eager class of children, using your enthusiasm and creativity when following the curriculum provided for subjects involved, which could be teaching English and sports. In the afternoon you will move on to your Spanish classes, picking up on colloquialisms whilst mastering your pronunciation. In class exercises, reading, writing, and grammar will all be covered, ensuring that you master the fundamentals before moving on to more complex subjects as your confidence grows. An evening of practise over a home-cooked meal will revitalise you and prepare you to start a new day of teaching, using your new skills to impress your students.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?

There are two options for arriving into Honduras, either to fly into San Pedro Sula or direct to La Ceiba. If you fly into La Ceiba you will be collected from the airport by a friendly local staff member, who will then escort you to your home in La Ceiba, a port town on the north coast of Honduras, where you will live for the duration of your stay.  If you are arriving into San Pedro Sula you will then make your way to La Ceiba via bus, detailed instructions for which will be provided prior to your departure.  If you choose the San Pedro Sula option please aim to arrive no later than 2pm in order to make the last bus. During your placement you will be no more than 10 blocks walking distance from your home to the school every morning and afternoon, giving you the chance to soak up the sun and explore the local environment.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You will be staying with a friendly Honduran host family, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in the culture and language of Honduras as you will be living just like a local! You will have a private room and bathroom facilities will be available. Your host family will be welcoming and friendly and will try to make you feel like a member of the family.

WHAT WILL I BE EATING?

You will be provided with three meals a day. These meals will be typical Honduran dishes consisting of beans, rice, tortillas, meat, cheese and eggs. Food can also be obtained at local supermarkets. Sample some of the country's local food such as meaty tortillas, fried beans, and papaya.
