A message from our friends at UBC Tandem Language Learning Program:
Do you speak English? Want to meet and help out international students? Looking for volunteer opportunities? UBC Tandem Language Learning Program is looking for you!
We are recruiting English-speaking student volunteers to accommodate the high demand for English in the program. The commitment would be once a week for 1.5hrs from Mon Feb 2 to Fri Apr 10.
Tandem Language Learning Program (Exchange) in a nutshell: students meet independently or in facilitated sessions at the Global Lounge (or elsewhere of choice) once a week and teach other their own language. However, because this is an additional feature we are trying out this semester to meet the high demand for students wanting to learn English, sessions organized through this volunteering opportunity will most likely be English-only. (And for this reason, you do not have to register online with Tandem.) The sessions are casual conversation-oriented and there are “guide books” with different conversation topics every week that participants can refer to, so preparation on the volunteers’ part would be minimal.
If interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, year, program, and level in English fluency. Thank you for your consideration!
