What does the programme involve?

Please note that this programme is a summer camp, so your teaching experience will mainly focus on leading games and activities in English, rather than formal classroom teaching. Learning through fun and content-language integrated learning are a very important part of TEFL. This is a chance to develop your teaching skills while having lots of fun.

Why Romania?

Our programme in Romania gives you the opportunity to try out teaching in a fun summer camp environment, with tourism trips included. 

Romania is a hidden gem for travel. While. your focus during the programme will be on teaching and the summer camps, you will also get to explore and see Romania, and start a summer of backpacking, especially if you interrail! During this programme, you will visit:

  • Brasov in Transylvania, surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains
  • Sighisoara, a medieval citadel and UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Several mountain resorts: Sinaia, Predeal, and Busteni, including visits to famous castles and landmarks
  • Bucharest, Romania’s capital, for a fun final two nights

 

We offer support and advice from a team that includes both experienced travellers and qualified teachers, on top of the support that is offered by the camp you join. You can also count us to do our best to provide an authentic Romanian experience. Spending this much time with students and the local coordinators will give you the opportunity to learn more about Romanian culture, while developing your teaching skills

Don't just take our word for it...

If you are on your university funding and meet your university’s widening participation criteria, then you may also receive funding towards your travel.
