International Society is an independent charity which organizes events as well as trips in the UK for students and families since the 1960s. It works all the universities in Manchester, whose students can now all register for free. Counting around 4000 members coming from all over the world, it is a great place where to make friends and practice a foreign language. Apart from the weekly socials on Wednesdays and Fridays, we do offer themed events (e.g. cultural evenings) and especially, volunteering projects to which everyone is welcome to participate:
The International Society has up to 70 volunteer teachers teaching classes at any one time; and 100’s over the course of a year. Often teachers teach with us for many years. Many of our teachers are students at the universities in Greater Manchester who want to share something of their language and culture and get some teaching experience.
As a teacher you would be responsible for the content of the lessons that you teach and for checking the register with your students. You need to be enthusiastic, organised and punctual. You will learn how to plan classes, deliver lessons and communicate effectively with people who have varying levels of English in order to teach them another language.
