Temporary Teaching in Swansea – Korean Christian group – July and August 2013

February 26, 2013

A Christian group from Korea, led by Pastor Paul HoKeun Nam, will again be in Swansea for a culture and English language programme, 16th July~16th August. This is an independently organised party.

Last year, two Swansea CELTA ex-trainees successfully led the language teaching for this group, designing and delivering a course. They also participated in some of the activities the pastor had planned.  The group was mainly of young people, keen for this experience a long way from home.

This year, there is a need for two teachers for a 10+10 course of young people and their accompanying adults. Pay is modest, at £17 per hour, and a four-day 4-5 hour per day week is called for. There will be an excursion each Friday, which the teacher is welcome to go on. The group will (as last year), rent a property and provide their own catering, to which the teacher is also invited.

You will need to be flexible and adaptable, willing to select and design materials for the groups’ learning needs. Some experience of / willingness for needs analysis and course design is called for – you will be the one in charge of design and delivery. Of course, there is also the challenge of keeping younger learners meaningfully occupied and motivated, with some perceived targets to meet before they go home.

The two teachers last year found this to be useful and productive for them personally – one obtained a  permanent full-time mainstream teaching job at a very good private school  shortly afterwards.

If you feel you can meet this challenge please communicate with Peter Neville in the first instance.

    The prospect of teaching English language, in the context of life in Swansea, to Korean youngsters and adults is an opportunity I look forward to. Growing up abroad, I have experienced the challenges faced by foreigners working hard to improve their English. This is especially true in a world where correct English is the ‘lingua franca’.
