Teach basic conversational English in Nosy Be, a stunning island in Madagascar! You will teach in local schools, to children of various age groups from nearby rural villa This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Solteros y solteras
Parejas
50+
For the majority of people in Madagascar they cannot afford to travel and so rarely get the chance to speak with people from outside the country. In villages like Tsararano Ambony, the children may have never spoken to a foreigner. As a foreign teacher you can enable the children to experience talking with a westerner, allowing them to discover a whole new culture. They will be incredibly excited to meet with you!

The local teachers can also greatly benefit in talking with a fluent English speaker, as well as discovering new and up to date teaching methods and techniques from you. As you’ll mainly be assisting the local school teachers, no formal teaching experience is required for this project.

You will be teaching children from different age groups and with varying learning abilities. You are welcome to use your own teaching materials and encouraged to get creative. You can also use the course book as guide and help the children with their conversational and spoken English. During your volunteer project you can also teach other subjects such as mathematics, history, science, geography, computer, technologies, music and arts and crafts. Through fun, educational games you can help the kids with their personal development, environmental awareness and general health and safety.

Higher education in Madagascar is taught in French and Malagasy but knowing English is something that will be extremely valuable to them in later life. Nosy Be is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Madagascar so knowing how to speak English can increase the children’s job prospects in the future.

Location
Nosy Be (meaning ‘big island’) is an absolutely stunning island off the north-west coast and is Madagascar’s largest and busiest tourist destination. The population is estimated around 73,010 and the island has an area space of 320.02 square kilometres.

On Nosy Be island you will find volcanic lakes, lemurs, rum distilleries, Ylang Ylang plantations and beautiful coral reefs. There is just so much to explore on this amazing island! In May, you can experience the 4 day Donia Music Festival. Situated on the Indian Ocean, on Nosy-Be island you can relax on the best white sand beaches, take a boat trip through the jungle, go trekking to see lemurs or snorkel alongside turtles and manta rays in the clear waters.
