Student Spotlight

Olivia LaRocco student taught in English classrooms, working with primary and secondary school children in Thesaloiniki during the Spring of 2019. "My absolute favorite part of Greece's culture was the hospitality and warmth I received from the people there. People really went out of their way to not only make me feel like I wasn't an outsider, but that I was actually an accepted and appreciated member of the community."

Costs and Scholarships

Global Gateway for Teachers cannot provide exact cost information since costs will vary throughout the year and from one individual to the next. Please note that all estimates are listed in U.S. Dollars. Keep in mind that foreign currency exchange rates will affect the value of the U.S. Dollar and hence your budget.

Teaching Responsibilities

Students will teach conversational and written English to a variety of grade levels. Further, it may be possible to fulfill practicum requirements in Greece for the ESL /ENL license addition.

Other Considerations

Proficiency in Greek is not required, but participants are encouraged to learn basic words and phrases before they leave for their placement. Participation is not limited to students pursuing the ESL/ENL license addition.
