Short-Term Trip to Asia Pacific: Teaching Abroad C-Team

TRIP DESCRIPTION 

Teach English using various content topics to university students and young adults in a developing Southeast Asian nation. Our partner is the Language Exchange in Asia Pacific. These university students represent the new generation of this society. They will engage with the wider world like no other generation before them.

Teachers will also engage socially with students as relationships build. There is interest in broader opportunities to practice English during social events, sports, and excursions.

Teachers will grow professionally through coached lesson planning and weekly observations. Pre-service teachers will work alongside experienced teachers as the team serves together to bring academic enrichment to the students. Professional development will also include sessions on aspects of teaching cross-culturally.

EDU PARTNER TEAMS

These professional opportunities are only available for in-service, pre-service, and former educators (K-12, early childhood, higher ed, school counselors).

Teachers will serve full-time in language schools, K-12 schools, and informal education opportunities. Each teacher will work at an appropriate level and in a content that matches their professional preparation.

Team size for EDU Partner Teams is 2-5. All dates are subject to shift based on the needs of the teachers on the team. (For example, when they are finished with their regular teaching schedule, when they must return to university, etc).

All Partner Teams include
▪ Pre-field training in cross-cultural living, fundraising, and crosscultural teaching
▪ Language study
▪ Cultural exploration through preparatory readings & excursions
▪ Bible study on the gospel across cultures
▪ Observations and feedback on teaching
▪ Individual mentoring
