Volunteers are placed at a teaching English projects, situated in impoverished housing areas. Teaching usually takes place in a small community centre or church within the housing area. The people at these projects come from low income families and cannot afford to study English at a private institute. These projects focus primarily on children of all ages who come to learn English, participate in games and cultural activities. Volunteers therefore partake in teaching English as well as providing support for all activities. Volunteers do not necessarily teach in front of large classrooms or in formal classroom settings and often teaching is done in one-on-one formats, or a small group which is great for building relationships with the learners.
