English one of the official language in Tanzania  however in the rural areas many children still speak their local dialects in school. We hope by bringing English speaking volunteers to the area, it will enhance the children's understanding of vocabulary perhaps that they would not be introduced to usually and different accents to assist with their learning later in life. As the children get older and study further advanced subjects theses are all taught in English so a key understanding of English is critical for these children to continue on to further education.

we believe term that when we send our volunteers to a school, even just by two weeks  time the children are much more comfortable having some conversations in English and we hope to keep up with this momentum to give them the best shot at the life they want as they grow into young adults!

Depending on the school that you select after your introduction and what you will feel comfortable with, you may be paired up with a teacher to primarily start supporting as a teaching assistant or you may be given a class yourself depending on your experience and confidence. Although the thought of your own class may seem overwhelming at first, the sheer enthusiasm and eagerness to learn of children will be a strong push to spur you on the way.

For the younger children basic reading, writing and phonics are usually required whereas for the older children it's learning to expand their vocabulary and basic lessons of English Language. Even just day to day chatting with the children offers a fantastic cultural exchange experience where they are introduced to different accents and ideas which you then see their use and confidence of English come on leaps and bounds! We have a wide range of teaching books and lesson plans within the store room of the volunteer house and we advise volunteers to make use of their free evening and weekend time to plan the following days lessons.
Even combining some English teaching into subjects such as creative arts for posters or wall displays for the classroom will be loved by the children, they are often taught via dictation due to a lack of materials.
