How many students are enrolled in the school?

This varies seasonally: the government vacation months (January, February, and August) are particularly vulnerable to fluctuation.

Are classes given in a traditional classroom learning environment?

Lessons are provided in classrooms, in the traditional manner.

However, we also offer foreign language karaoke, weekend conversation clubs, reading materials, computer access, interactive CD ROMs with a variety of learning games, 3rd language taster classes, self study materials for pronunciation and listening, a school football team, and show foreign language movies on a regular basis.

So there are many informal opportunities to practise the target language, also.

What is the job description?

As a small school, all contracted hours are negotiable, and depend upon availability of groups for study.

Each standard monthly weekday course lasts 18 lessons. Effectively, students pay for one month of classes at a time (it takes 4-6 months to complete a full level of a course).

Therefore, teachers are expected to work 3.5 weeks per month.

Teachers have between 1-3 days' break at the end of each month - combined with a weekend, this is an excellent opportunity to travel.  Three times a year, you'll get a week or more free, at Navidad (Christmas), Pascua (Easter), and the Fiestas Patronales de Chachapoyas (early August).

11 Fully equipped teaching rooms, with CD, or DVD/television, whiteboard, and a library of books / newspapers.

We have two offices, and 11 classrooms on two separate city center sites, three blocks apart .

There are also some private rooms and a kitchen for staff who elect to live onsite.

In June 2009 we’re also opening a second branch in Bagua Province, closer to the selva (jungle), which has 5 rooms and living accommodation.

How many hours will I actually teach English?

An estimated 4-6 hours per day, dependent on demand.
