English Language Mentor AnglovilleI volunteered with Angloville as an English Language Mentor teaching Polish children aged 8-18. As a mentor, I carried out 1:1 and 2:1 English speaking sessions, played English speaking games with the children and helped them to produce presentations for the end of the week. Often, I would also have to explain language structures to a group of learners or assist them with their spelling or pronunciation during various activities.

French Mentor Highsted Grammar SchoolDuring my free periods in year 12, I helped students studying French in years 7, 8 and 9. This often required me to take small groups out of class to practice their conversation skills and to support and assist students whilst observing their lessons. From this work experience, I learned how to teach languages to young people in an engaging manner and help students to improve their French conversation skills.

English as a Second Language Teacher Newlands FarmDuring the summer of 2020, I taught English as a second language to 20 colleagues who I lived with on the farm. Due to the aims of my learners, there was slightly more focus given to speaking and listening skills though I involved reading and writing activities in my lessons too. This role gave me a lot of experience in creating lesson plans and predicting potential problems that learners may have with the language as well as building my practical teaching skills.
