Teaching English in Summer Camps
English summer camp teacher vacancies are popping up left right and centre on various job forums. I have seen many language schools currently recruiting camp teachers, counsellors and managers who would like to work with them in summer 2018. I am currently planning my own summer, since, last year I had the opportunity to work in Poland on a summer camp which was great and lasted from June – August 2017. The aim of the summer camp was for children to practice their English as much as possible by involving them in a variety of fun activities as well as learning new vocabulary and structures.
My role of ESL teacher was combined with being a photography instructor because the theme of each camp incorporated my skills and background in creative fields which the language school had discussed with me during the planning stages. As a result, I planned, delivered and evaluated a range of fun, creative and practical filmmaking workshops for 9-19 year olds.
So what are you waiting for? If you have a free summer why not teach abroad at a summer camp! As an ESL teacher, you should be energetic and fun to be with. Most of all enthusiastic, full of creative ideas and a good team player. It’s also a great way to get your foot in the door with a good language school. But remember to work as an ESL teacher, you need to obtain a TEFL certification.
In other news, last weekend I went to the Open House Vilnius festival as mentioned in a previous blog. Unfortunately, the excursions weren’t in English, however, I was fortunate to go with friends who were able to translate information to me about architecture which is usually closed off to the public. I visited Vilnius TV Tower and Vilniaus Spaudos Rūmai (Radio Tower). It was a rare chance to see behind the scenes of these buildings and a real privilege as a foreigner, if you’re interested to see more you can check out the photos on my Instagram page @easternbloc_artist
