You’ll often serve alongside a Mexican English teacher, and at other times, you’ll tutor small groups of students and explain English lessons. These might be English idioms for advanced students – or common phrases that come up in typical business conversations. Engage students in classroom practice and “real life” learning situations to maximize their understanding. We provide a Conversational English Teaching Guide to assist you – along with games, puzzles and suggested lessons. After school, you can join your students in shopping, sight-seeing trips, musical events or any number of cultural activities to extend the day’s learning. Whether you’re a current or retired educational professional – or not – your knowledge of English is an important resource.
“As for my eighth program in Querétaro at UTEQ, it was as good as, if not richer than, ever. I love the city, campus and my friends there! And I am ALWAYS singing the praises of Global Volunteers. It’s easy – I’m passionate about it. Am I gushing? So be it.”
“Having Global Volunteers at our school over these years has increased our students’ awareness of a bigger, wider world outside. They are encouraged by that interaction to study the language and communicate with foreign people. For most of them, it’s their first time they have any interaction with a native English speaker.”
“Come prepared to work hard, learn a lot, and have a hugely rewarding experience which really does change many lives.”
“The students were eager participants – warm, open and anxious to please. This is a wonderful site for volunteering. It’s a privilege – well organized, comfortable and the town is an interesting base. Be prepared for a wonderful experience.”
“I’ll miss the charming streets, happy people, beautiful churches, outdoor markets, and wonderful restaurants. The quaint and interesting little city of Querétaro is sunny and warm. But, most of all, the students are wonderful!”
