COME WITH US, SEE CHINA AND TEACH CONVERSATIONAL ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE TO EAGER STUDENTS!
The next trip to China will take place from July 11th - July 30th, 2018 and second session dates are July 26th - August 12th, 2018. You will be under the direct supervision of one of the BTW Camp Directors from the States. This means that you will have an experienced leader there with you at all times. You will be teaching conversational English to students ranging in age from 7 - 18 years old.
You will teach from 9:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. After lunch you will participate in sports, indoor games, and other activities such as singing, drama, and English Corner (small group conversation). All of which are designed to enhance the students' spoken English in an informal atmosphere. In the evenings the Chinese students and American teachers will participate together in a birthday party, talent show, and various activities during the two weeks of English Second Language camp.
What you will experience: Our summer camps allow you to experience the vast culture of China while teaching the Chinese students conversational English As a Second Language. If you come to China this trip will open your eyes to the way life is in China and give you the opportunity to make a difference in a Chinese young persons future.
Costs: You will need to raise $2900.00 for this trip. This covers your international air travel, local travel, travel insurance, room and board. This does not include the following: acquisition of your passport, supplies, and extra travel expenses. You will also want to take a modest amount of funds to buy items for yourself or gifts and souvenirs.
After the two week camp, the American teachers will gather in Beijing to share their camp experiences and tour key places in and around the city of Beijing. There might also be the opportunity to meet and talk with other Americans working in China.
You do not need to know the Chinese language, nor do you need to be a certified teacher. We have a "curriculum" of proven lesson plans which we use to train non-teachers for use in the classroom.
