Language Teaching Jobs

Are you?

Focused, fluent, quick thinking, patient

Bonus qualifications

If you can speak another language, you'll be a lock for a language role at camp - but you don't need to be fluent to teach languages abroad. At camp, you'll be able to develop confidence in a language you're not fluent in.

Why should I teach languages at camp?

If you're passionate about cultural immersion and are interested in learning and speaking other languages, why not teach languages at camp? A language job at camp will give you the opportunity to teach the basics of whichever language you choose to your campers - and if it's a language you're not fully comfortable speaking, it will help you develop your confidence. Doing this for about 8-10 weeks from June to August isn't a bad way to skip winter, right?

Language jobs abroad are kind of like a TEFL alternative - only instead of teaching english abroad, you'll be teaching and learning whatever languages you're interested in.

What does a language teacher do?

Your day teaching languages at camp will vary depending on what camp you get hired at, which languages you speak, and how comfortable you are with teaching your campers. Chances are, most campers will be total beginners - so if you can nail down the basics, you'll be in great shape.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I apply for a language job at summer camp?

When starting your application you’ll be asked to select your top skills. Choose languages. Go into detail about what you’re going to bring to the role, your skill level and if you already know the basics or are fluent. A camp director will then be able to assess if you’re a good fit, and invite you to their camp.

Why should I teach languages instead of being a general counselor?

Teaching languages at camp is a great way to increase your speaking level through practice, to learn a new language, or to gain teaching experience. If you're thinking about developing your language skills, or pursuing a potential career in languages or teaching, this is a can't miss opportunity.

How can I make my languages job application stand out?

There are two main factors that you can improve before summer. First, gain experience working with children through volunteering with a local school or language class. That way, even if you can't find a language role, you'll still have a good shot at getting hired. Second, practice your language skills with Duolingo or a similar tool!

How many children will I be teaching in one language session?

Your language teaching sessions will see you delivering lessons to classes of 10-30 people - including at least one counselor for every 6-10 campers. Skill levels may vary widely, so it'll be your job to make sure everyone can participate.
