Geovisions Announces the Launch of Conversation Corps, A New Way to Teach English Abroad

Guilford, CT (PressExposure) September 15, 2008 -- Teaching English abroad has traditionally meant moving abroad for a year to teach English in some Asian country. Geovisions is trying to change this model by making teaching English abroad more affordable and more accessible to those with limited time on their hands. For as little as $760 travelers teach English 15 hours a week in exchange for room, board and plenty of time to explore the country.

The Geovisions' Conversation Corps is a unique way to live in a foreign country for a fraction of the normal cost. Travelers will live in a homestay with plenty of time to fully explore the country; then for 15 hours a week will get great work experience teaching English to their host family.

Programs range in duration from one to three months and the destinations teachers can travel to include: Jordan, Germany, France, Spain, Thailand, Italy, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Russia and Turkey.

Conversation Corps members need to have earned a high school (secondary school) diploma or certificate, be in good health and abide by the family’s rules and habits. Participants must devote up to 15 hours per week, Monday thru Friday, for lessons and conversation. Lesson plans and family activities are provided by GeoVisions as part of the pre-departure information, travelers do not need a teaching degree to participate in the program.

Duties and Responsibilities include: • Teaching the host family English up to 15 hours a week Monday to Friday • Come up with creative, fun and informative lesson plans • Helping children with their English homework • Play games in English with the children • Create and teach educational games and activities

All GeoVisions programs include accommodation. Most include meals, airport pick-up, project training, in-country support, extensive medical and accident insurance, extensive pre-departure information and onsite project orientation.
