English Service Track
English conversation with public school students and/or new immigrants in Jerusalem and Bat Yam
Israeli children begin studying English in third grade. For all Israelis, English is an essential skill that has long-term impact on success in school, higher education, and the workplace. For Israelis with limited access to native speakers, mastering English is even harder.
There is a shortage of qualified English teachers in Israel. Class sizes in some schools can reach as many as 40 students.
Friendly, chatty, warm, and supportive English-speaking adults are a special gift to Israeli public school students studying English. Students may need assistance preparing for English matriculation exams, oral and written comprehension, or just practice speaking. The opportunity for one-on-one interaction using English can build confidence and be a game-changer for Israeli kids. Service settings offer individual or small-group work in English.
Appropriate for both experienced teachers and other professionals.
Teachers bring a wealth of experience and training to working with Israeli English students. But you need not be a trained teacher to have an impact, as you will be working mostly one-on-one with students. Your warmth, curiosity, and people skills will help you help your students. We share a variety of methods and suggested exercises to help expand vocabularies and develop speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills.
Apply your creativity and curiosity to connect to your students on a personal level.
Open the world of your home, culture, and community to your students. Boost their confidence in speaking English.
