Program Details

Teachers from all around the world reunite in Mexico for sharing knowledge! We provide training to all our volunteers so they know how to use the material we use. Oxford Instituto de Idiomas has 8 language courses available: English, French, Spanish (for foreigners), Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese and German. You can choose within 6 locations in Mexico: Villahermosa, Poza Rica, Puebla, Coatzacoalcos, Paraíso and Ciudad del Carmen. Each of them in different states so you can get to know different sides of Mexico. From a big city to a small village.

We expect our volunteers to have flexibility for we may need more teachers in one state than in other. But don't worry, every single destination is full of different experiences!

All institutes facilities are equipped with the necessary tools for the classes (air conditioner, wifi, tablets, dictionaries, books, etc.).

Activities & Shift

The class programs are already planned, so there's no need for you to plan classes, however, we do expect you to plan some fun extra activities so both the teacher and the students enjoy the class. You'll work in super small groups (5 students per group). All we ask to our volunteers is to be responsible with the classes and to engage with the students progress. Punctuality is very important for us!

Everyday you are to write the progress of each student in our database. The classes are programmed according to the number of the students each institute has, but the limit of each group is 5 people per classroom. If one day you don't have students, you are free to go. We'll explain the process of one class once you've been accepted.


Rules are quite important for us. We have some internal regulations that everyone in our staff must follow. We ask our collaborators punctuality, cleanliness in the area of work and commitment.
