Teaching Disadvantaged Children Project in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Spanish Language Course

         

I feel that teaching English in a foreign country, without ever having taught before, was a challenge and a great experience. I especially enjoyed teaching in the orphanages. I feel that the teaching was a great opportunity to learn how to make myself heard and respected among groups of children who were often very energetic and difficult to control. It taught me patience.

I think a person doing this placement would have to be quite mature and disciplined. You also need to have patience as some of the children can be a bit difficult.

On a typical day, I would get up at around 8 a.m, have a shower and have breakfast. Then at around 8:30 I would leave the hostel to get the underground (Subte) to Buenos Aires University where my Spanish lessons would last from 9:00 - 12:00 a.m.

After that I would go back to the hostel, have lunch with some of the other teachers and then at around 2:00 p.m. I would get a bus to my teaching placement which usually lasted for two hours.

The best thing about the placement was teaching in the orphanage. I felt that although the children were difficult to control I made a difference and that was rewarding.

In terms of the experience I had I would definitely recommend Travellers to someone else.
