Host teachers

Anywhere in the UK – In your own home, candidates will need a spare room for the student to stay in.

Live Learn Languages is based near Girona, Spain. We organise total immersion English courses in the United Kingdom which is why we are in a unique position to be able to advertise in Spain for Spanish Students to undertake English courses in the UK. There is currently a huge demand for English in Spain.

The course normally lasts one week, but students can choose to stay longer. A normal week includes 15 hours in class teaching from Monday to Friday, which can be 3 hours every morning or divided between the morning and the afternoon. 1 hour every day is the blog hour where students talk about the day, upload photos they have taken throughout the day and write a small descriptive text. The course is usually one or two students.

The teacher will take the student on 2 cultural visits per week to a different town or historical site, and the student will spend the rest of their free time with the teacher or someone from the family.

Students are immersed into British culture, which means that the teacher introduces the student to his / her normal, everyday life. Teachers can incorporate almost anything into the course. For example, if the teachers need to go to the supermarket, you could study food vocabulary in class in the morning, talk about recipes using the grammar point “The imperative”, role play different situations in the supermarket, asking for help, greetings, etc. and teach British money. Then the student could buy the ingredients for a dish from their country. In the evening, for dinner, you and the student could cook the student’s favourite dish.

Students have all their meals with you or someone in your family and they expect to spend the rest of the time in the company of the teacher and/ or family. When we say “teacher and/or family” we hope that the majority of the time the student is in the company of the teacher, but it is not a problem for the student to spend time with someone from the teacher’s family. In fact, this would be a positive experience for the student to spend time with other people. Our students choose our courses specifically because they are total immersion, but if a student asks to spend some time alone for whatever reason, then this is fine.

Teachers earn £500 per week for one student and £886 per week for 2 students. Teachers also earn an extra £50 for airport transfer.

Teachers are required to be TEFL (20 hours) or PGCE qualified, with a degree. And some experience of teaching English to foreign speakers is advisable.

Teachers need to have native level English.

Teachers need to live in the UK at the time of the course.

Teachers are expected to supply their own teaching material.
