German for Students
Description: Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU), based in L’viv, one of the best Humanities & Science Universities in Ukraine. University gives secular education following best western standards with some religious elements. University authorities pay a big attention to international cooperation and intercultural learning. The annual English Summer School (ESS) is an intensive English course which provides opportunities for spiritual growth, challenging work and fun. Its primary objectives are to enable students to immerse themselves in an English speaking community in order to become fluent English speakers and to create a a prayerful, retreat-like environment in keeping with Eastern Christian traditions.
Type of Work: Teaching English. Special Orientation program (lasts 3-4 days) will be provided in L’viv, the teachers will be lodged at UCU Residential College. We encourage the volunteer teachers to stay for a day or two after the camp (we take care of the lodging if it's up to 3 days) to say a proper "good-bye" to the students and do some more sightseeing in city. During the orientation program the teachers get to know each other, there's team-building and basic instruction in the methodology of teaching ESL. The Academic Program is centered on five daily classes, three in the morning and two in the afternoon. Since two teachers are always assigned to each class, they can help each other or do some in-class-tutoring. Besides regular classes we also have evening tutoring and evening activities.
Study Theme: L’viv region has a lot of places of interests that is why you will not feel lack of historical places to visit: castles, monasteries, churches. L’viv itself is a beautiful city of authentic architecture, which is non-formal capital of Western Ukraine. There will be an opportunity to visit many museums and other interesting places in L’viv. During the orientation program in L’viv, the volunteer teachers will have a guided tour of the central part of L’viv and a visit to a museum. Also volunteers will have opportunity to stay after the project few days more for proper city discovering.
Accommodation: Since all of the program participants live in one building, the interaction between the teachers and students is quite intensive. Volunteers will be accommodated in rooms (2 persons per room). Three meals per day will be provided.
Language: Proficient level of English
Requirements: Project for English-speakers or people with fluent English. Special application form available upon request.

Notes: Alcohol is strictly forbidden on the project site. The religious component is an integral part of the whole program. For some teachers, this may be the first time following a regular, daily prayer schedule and/or the first time experiencing the Byzantine Divine Liturgy. Ukraine had a rich and deep religious history and we hope you will be excited to become part of it.
