Your teaching experience
It’s time to get into the classroom! You’ll be confident after already completing 10 hours of observed teaching practice during your training. You’ll be teaching learners ranging in age from young learners to adults with mixed English ability, giving you an incredible first-time teaching experience. You can expect around 20-25 hours of hands-on teaching per week, plus some time to plan lessons following the in-house curriculum. Your goal will be focused on conversational English practice, helping your eager students to feel confident as they develop their skills. You’ll be able to ask advice from local teaching colleagues but don’t forget to bring your own creativity and ideas into the classroom, this is your chance to shine! On days off and your salary to enjoy, you will have a long list of sightseeing and travel plans. Master this local colectivos (public buses), find the best plazas for late night milongas, and make it to a Boca Juniors’ match (hint: don’t wear red and white). Prepare to check off a few amazing bucket list items!
Day 211
After your internship
Congratulations, you did it! Make sure to celebrate this achievement. It’s time to decide if you’d like to see more of Argentina, traveling or teaching (or both). You might decide to extend your stay in Buenos Aires and teach for longer. The possibilities are endless for you now as a confident and experienced TEFL teacher.
