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. This individual should preferably 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. The Facilitator would be responsible for planning interesting activities to engage the local participants in conversation to assist in the development of their English conversational skills. As a facilitator he/she must also be able to respond when help is needed (vocabulary grammar pronunciation etc).
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.
