The “Family Language Tutor” Program is a cultural and language exchange that allows English native speakers to discover Italy and the real Italian culture by teaching English to Italian host family members for a period of 1-3 months, in exchange for room and board. The program offers the satisfaction of helping people learn English and a way to broaden your world-view, strengthen your resume and experience the Italian life from “the inside”.
You will be a teaching assistant at a local school for up to 15 hours/week and tutor your host family for 5 hours/week while living with them.
International Experience collaborates with many schools from kindergarten to high schools who have extreme need to be helped by a native speaker, whose role could vary from leading the classroom in English activities to assist English teachers during their lessons.
Most schools are located in the fascinating Marche region, on the Adriatic coast, and host families are screened both from the school and International Experience’s staff in order to ensure the highest standards of safety for our candidates.
Playing and leading games, using flashcards to go over English vocabulary, create art projects and invent easy recitals for your young Italian students will be part of the daily activities at “You Can Camp”, where Italian students 6 to 14 years old go every morning to learn the English language in a fun and captivating way. You will have the freedom to use your own creativity but also the possibility of following a well structure curriculum with plenty of engaging activities. Every camp session usually lasts 2 weeks, from 9am to 1pm, mostly in school buildings and their open spaces.
The “summer volunteering” program combines the opportunity of helping others, interact with the local community and share a unique experience with other candidates in apartments located very close to the beach, in towns along the Adriatic coast.
Only 15 hours volunteering/week and possibility of taking days off for longer weekend trips.
