Recruiting Native English Language Teacher on the Coast of Chile

Date of Job Posted: Saturday, January 27, 2018

Country of Job Position: Chile

We are currently recruiting team members to teach English and grow the ESL sector for one year starting March 2018. Ideally I am looking for someone who loves a professor and is really interested in participating in a very active, unique, and conservative coastal academia.

Our team's teachers want to promote learning and provide a good experience for everyone. We are a small but close team that loves what we do.

About the ESL Program

The Pichilemu Language Studies Institute (PILS) ESL program is a community-based project that provides quality English language instruction to Pichilemu and local residents since 2005. The ESL methodology is committed to helping our students learn much more than grammar and vocabulary. ESL professors are excellent tools to explore our local and international world and increase our confidence and communication skills. We are recruiting teachers who discover and possibly guide students in the trip.

This school also serves as a multicultural space because it offers classes in both ESL and Spanish for foreigners worldwide. Therefore, our school is a good atmosphere for cultural and language exchange.

About our students

The age and level of students vary greatly. Most of them are English beginners 15 to 35 years old. Classes are small (max. 1 to 7). I attend classes twice a week, one hour each.
Our English learners have come to the school with a variety of goals, but one common task can speak confidently. We aim to provide a safe space for all students to provide opportunities and increase communication skills.

Smile in our society

Pichiremu It is the horse of the Japanese word which means small forest. It is an oasis of rural and coastal life in the heart of Chile. Charming tourist attractions in central Chile are gathered in nature, countryside and history. Pichiremu We maintain many cultural traditions that are rarely seen in other parts of Chile. Kanpine Despite the deep tradition, modern life has been passed on to Pichiremu quickly.

Pichiremu offers a variety of activities throughout the year. There are many opportunities for navigation and surfing has become the hot topic.

ESL course

We have not reached the registration target yet. We are recruiting talented people who can creatively help promote our programs both in the short term and the long term. Our biggest marketing asset is the experience our students have gained both inside and outside the classroom. Their mention is very important to our school.
Because the program offers very inexpensive classes, we use registration numbers to keep the program running smoothly. We were able to increase the number of people in 2017 (from 7 to 35), but we would like to double it by the end of the year.

In addition to increasing the number of students who benefit from our program, we also want to work to create a more organized learning path for our students. We want to develop a more powerful curriculum for current and future teachers and students to work with. Levels and classes are organized according to the current Common European Framework, and each teacher is free to configure courses according to the needs of each group.

This year there are the following types of student groups:

Summer learners (January and February)
Grade learners (March to December)
Year-round learners
