DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH?
¨Do you speak English? Are you able to teach it to us?¨ Those were the questions that our founders were confronted with, when they first set foot on Ecuadorian soil. Those questions have led to the creation of our first modest English language program for the locals. Within a few weeks this program was visited by more than 100 Ecuadorian students.
As of now, 4 years later, we have our own office building with a classroom, make use of a professional teaching method and give classes to different age groups. Ranging from a 7-year old kid to a 60-year old grandpa, everybody is welcome. After all, nobody is too old to learn!
It’s not that you can see immense progress during the English lessons, but if you are going through a longer time you see a clear difference
I really liked to teach the students, especially when I noticed the progress. The relationship you build up with them is special
At the English School, you can take the role of manager/project coordinator or as a teacher.
It is important to take spanish lessons to be able to participate and communicate with local people. In our office in Quito we have experienced teachers. During the lessons besides Spanish you will learn about culture and get enough experience. This is ideal because you will also have the opportunity to participate in all our projects in Quito: English school, swimming school, soccer school and other interesting activities, see our Spanish course page.
Local Dreamers offers its volunteers and interns excellent Spanish classes for the price of only € 11 per lesson. Every volunteer and intern are very excited about our Spanish lessons.
The main office of Local Dreamers is in Quito the capital of Ecuador. There is also the meeting point to direct our volunteers and interns to the different projects. Our facilities have everything you need to prepare your lessons. We have a pleasant working environment with computers, internet and printers. In the cafeteria you can prepare a good cup of tea, coffee and a snack. Outside our office, just one step away, you will have access to all the facilities you need, for example, a large supermarket, restaurants (with a full menu for less than three euros) stationery stores, bakeries and even hairdressers, etc.
Upon your arrival at the airport, José Luis (our driver) will be waiting to take you to our office, where one of our guides will be waiting to take you to your lodging and will also teach you everything you need while you get used to the projects and how to get around in Ecuador.
