Knowledge of English is very important, especially in areas with tourist potential. And because in Mexico speak English only a tiny fraction of the population (surveys talks about 1-2 % of the population), the organization United Vision sends well-trained volunteers to partner communities, who help local residents to learn this foreign language. United Vision organizes classes for both, adults and children.
Every volunteer is well trained before the departure and equipped with methodological materials with clearly established procedure. United Vision has a highly effective methodology that makes it possible to teach people in groups, in a form that is fun and very effective. When teaching no textbooks are used.
Activities & Shift
Volunteers can teach both, groups of children and groups of adults. Each group must receive English lessons two times a week.
Adult Group should consist of max 25 members, one lesson takes 2.5 h (5h per week).
Children group should consist of max 16 members, one lesson takes 1.5 h (3h per week).
Students are also supposed to do homeworks.
Every volunteer should teach at least 3 months in the community. Already in just 4 three-months consecutive cycles students should be able to learn English at a basic conversational level (knowledge of all basic time + ability to actively use them in spoken and written English).
Volunteer has to pay travel, vaccination and insurance costs and all other expenses beyond accommodation and food
Volunteer has to write blog which serves as a source of up to date information for all stakeholders (potential volunteers, members of United
Vision, volunteer’s friends and relatives and general public)
Volunteer has to consent the use of videos and photos taken in the partner community for promotional purposes of United Vision
United Vision doesn’t collect any fees from the volunteers
Volunteer must be aware that during the stay in the partner community he/she is responsible not only for himself/herself but also for maintaining good relationships in the community and representing United Vision
Neither United Vision nor our partner communities can ensure 100% safety and it cannot be expected, therefore it is necessary to take it into consideration and act accordingly
