All applicants attend a one-week intensive training course in Italy followed by a minimum of three weeks in camps across Italy from the Alps to Sicily.
During this time tutors are provided with free accommodation with Italian host families, food and transport during and between camps.
Details of Position
Each summer the association trains and places more than 400 English tutors in camps to teach English to Italian children and teenagers.
This is a unique opportunity to enhance your CV by learning how to teach through games, sports, drama & songs all taught at our orientation. It is also a great summer experience where you will meet people from around the world, enjoy all that Italy has to offer, and make amazing memories for you & the children you meet.
After a careful selection process and a distance-learning course, trainee tutors are given a five-day orientation course in Italy before being assigned to tutor Italian children in a camp. This course prepares trainee tutors for their position by providing them with activities, songs, and games to teach the English language.
Through their experience with ACLE, tutors learn to develop their leadership skills, use voice as an instrument of communication for generating interest and meaning, lower the learners' inhibitions and fears about learning a second language, create games, songs, and activities around language functions, vocabulary, and grammatical structures, and use drama techniques to create simple scripts and theatrical performances that involve learners.
Once trainee tutors have completed orientation they attend a minimum of three weeks in camps across Italy from the Alps to Sicily, putting their training into practice, teaching children and having the time of their lives.
Accommodation, food and transport during and between camps is provided and trainee tutors also receive a paid study grant which is based on the number of weeks spent teaching. The study grant starts at 520 euros for your first 3 weeks in camp.
