Teaching English to underprivileged children and refugees in Paris
2019 will see the launch of an exciting new project for Serve The City Paris – English Pour Tout le Monde. Initiated by a group of STCP volunteers, the project’s aim is to teach both refugees and young children the English language in the impoverished areas of greater Paris. English is vastly becoming a common language in Paris, and in many cases a requirement for employment in certain sectors. We hope to boost their career prospects and the quality of life of young residents looking to build a new life in Paris.
The majority of volunteers for STCP speak English. We will be taking our
English language skills into schools and refugee centres to teach English by doing the
following: listening to the students as they read aloud, having conversations in English, and leading small discussion groups. The sessions will be informal and based on learning techniques that are simple, but consistent with English teaching found in schools.
It isn’t necessary to be a qualified English teacher to volunteer for this valuable work. You’ll need to be able to speak English to a good standard and to complete an online background check beforehand. Additionally, you will need to commit to the STCP Volunteer’s charter and take part in a short training and project orientation session.
