Volunteers teach conversational English, English as a second language (ELS) or content-based English in middle and high schools, creating opportunities for students and local teachers to contribute to their country's development. In addition to classroom teaching, Volunteers share resources, develop teaching materials with local teachers, and become involved in community- and school-based projects.

If you can offer a more detailed description than this standard description the Peace Corps offers, please feel free to include that so others can get a better idea of what certain work areas consist of.
