The international church is a typical city congregation of expats but with Korean Farsi and Turkish congregations in addition to the English one. Elder-led the church is broad evangelical and community oriented. It has existed for nearly 30 years. An English conversation club is being held at the church for locals interested in developing their English conversation skills. This church is located in a suburb where locals are accepting of the presence of foreigners and many are interested in learning English.
The English Conversation clubs are a new outreach of the church and provide a natural way for social encounters shared experience telling ones story and building friendships with locals. This short-term position is for a native English speaker interested in participating and encouraging discussion at an English conversation club or supporting individuals to learn English. This individual may have completed a TEFL course but this is not essential. The club is held two nights a week and aims to create meaningful activities to encourage conversation amongst the participants and native English speakers. They would not be planning the club activities but acting as a native English speaking table host.
We are looking for a native speaker with a good grasp of the English language who can develop creative and engaging activities to encourage conversation. An ability to work cross-culturally with other expats and with local citizens creativity passion and flexibility are all good characteristics.
