Teaching Underprivileged Children in Buenos Aires, Argentina

         

My experience in Buenos Aires was thoroughly enjoyable and I loved every minute of it. I would love to go back! I have learnt how to live by myself on the other side of the world, in an unfamiliar place and language! I have also developed skills to interact and socialize with a wide variety of people, from children, to teenagers and adults.

I especially enjoyed teaching in the schools as the kids and teachers were great! They were very friendly and welcoming. I received welcome and leaving cards, and presents, which was extremely sweet and touching. The schools made the most of having a native English person there, so I always felt that they appreciated my being there and that they also gained from the experience.

Would you recommend this placement to anyone else?

I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone, as I had a fantastic time, and I’m sure the experience would be just as worthwhile for someone else.

What type of person do you think this placement would suit?

This placement would suit anyone who is enthusiastic and motivated to do volunteer work in a foreign country. They should have the confidence to be able to integrate into a different culture, and interact with a wide variety of people from different backgrounds, and of different ages. The person should be adaptable and committed to their project.

Can you describe a typical day?

All my placements started after lunch (which I would have in the hostel). I would go to school about 1pm and stay there until it finished (4:30pm). In my schools, I moved around different classes each day and was an assistant teacher.

After school, I attended my other placements (English Academy and Home Querubines) which tended to finish around 8:30pm.
