Projects in Kyrgyz Republic
Volunteers in the Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) sector primarily build the capacity of English teachers through team-teaching English in secondary schools and universities. The focus is on the communicative methodology and building creative and critical thinking skills. TEFL Volunteers provide assistance to their schools and communities in establishing or expanding English teaching resources, contributing to curriculum development, and production of innovative teaching materials. TEFL Volunteers serve as regular members of the teaching faculty in their schools, with a workload comprised of co-teaching, lesson planning and clubs for 36 hours per week.
The Volunteers are also involved in extracurricular activities such as conducting other clubs, computer training, and youth development. Since inception in 1993, 600+ TEFL Volunteers have served as teachers at 200 secondary schools and 15 universities.
