English for Students
Description: Ukrainian Catholic University, 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 prayerful, retreat-like environment in keeping with Eastern Christian traditions. As a rule School hosts up to 200 students and around 40 teachers.
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. During the orientation program the teachers get to know each other, there's team-building and basic instruction in the methodology of teaching. 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. So, this is not just teaching, but also creating an English-speaking environment and a community of people who enjoy studying and spending time together. Detailed schedule can be send upon request.
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. 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.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated in rooms (2 persons per room). Three meals per day will be provided.
Requirements: Project for English-speakers or people with fluent English. Special application form available upon request. What to bring: good mood and wish to share and learn! You also can bring methodologies, exercises etc.
Approximate Location: Lviv and Lviv region.
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.
