The Care & English High School Special in Fiji combines intensive English lessons with the chance to experience village life while contributing to the local community. You will work alongside a group of volunteers in a Fijian village located near Nadi on the main island of Viti Levu.
During your two-week trip, you will receive two hours of English classes a day. Classes are interactive and you will be given encouragement every step of the way. You can put your new knowledge into practice on a daily basis as you get to know Fiji and the local people. Whether you want to master the basics or improve on the English you already know, the teaching will be adjusted to your level.
After your English classes, you will volunteer with local children. The village has its own kindergarten with an elementary school nearby. Your time will be divided between arranging educational games and activities for the children, as well as renovation work at the school and other community projects.
In Fiji, you will live with a local host family, who will introduce you to Fijian life and teach you about the culture. On the weekend, you will explore Fiji with the other volunteers and Projects Abroad staff by going on a day trip and visiting local attractions.
