Help children learn English
Make a difference by giving the gift of learning the English language! No teaching experience necessary. Interact with children and naturally help them learn fluent English.

Help children learn English in Mexico during your semester abroad! Live with a group of other volunteers and spend part of your day working with children in a classroom and spending the rest of your time exploring and really experiencing the Mexican culture. The best part is the beautiful weather, the loving people, and yep...the food of course!

International Language Programs (ILP) is a non-profit service organization based in Orem, Utah that sends 18-25 year old volunteers around the world to make a difference and have their own life-changing experiences. Over 9,000 volunteers have served with ILP to help children learn English, with numbers growing quickly.

We currently have ILP groups living in Celaya, San Jose Iturbide, and Irapuato, Mexico. This cities are located north of Mexico City and are surrounded by beautiful places that you can explore even on the weekend like natural hot springs to relax in, mountains to hike, and ancient statues and ruins to visit.

Description

International Language Programs (ILP) is a non-profit, volunteer service organization based in Provo, UT. ILP volunteers maintain high moral standards. Particular religious affiliation is not a requirement for participation but a commitment to live by the ILP Code of Conduct is. Since 1992 ILP has successfully taught English to children around the world. ILP provides nearly 400 volunteer and paid teachers each year for private and public schools worldwide. Approximately 7,500 children participate in our program in 16 schools in Russia, Taiwan, China, Ukraine, Mexico, and the U.S. With ILP children learn English in an environment of love and excitement. In approximately 500 hours of instruction (one school year) in an ILP beginning program, children become functionally fluent in English. After graduating from the beginning program, children continue to develop their comprehension and speaking skills. The second year is designed to help the students maintain their fluency while developing essential basic reading and writing skills. Following completion of that level, the Elementary program takes children to a higher level of fluency, achieving peer-level competency. Children study from textbooks and use curriculum currently used in American schools. The students learn to speak about subjects such as science, math, social studies, and literature. Having completed the follow-up program, children are able to learn with equal competency in classes taught in either English or their native language.
