mtexpIn June the first two American volunteers sponsored by the Macedonia Schools Project taught conversational English at Bratstvo-Edinstvo School in Ohrid.
Emilijia Paunkoska, the head of the Language Resource Center, assisted the volunteers both from the Seattle area. Jennifer Carroll organized a cross-culture performance for primary school aged children. Bonnie Layne worked with local adults interested in improving their English language skills.
Jennifer is a well-known puppeteer. Bonnie is a graduate student at the University Washington’s Department of Slavic Language and Literature.

Qualifications: Experienced or retired teachers or college level students interested in teaching and gaining a cross-cultural experience. Others comfortable in school classrooms are welcome to apply.
Costs: Air-flight is approximately $1,700 to reach Ohrid, Macedonia. Tuition is $550 for a 2-week experience, $700 for 3-weeks.
Accommodations: The tuition will cover housing with a local Macedonian family close to the school and includes breakfast each day.
Transportation: MSP hosts will meet you at the Ohrid airport and provide transportation to your housing.
Teaching environment: The MSP will provide students, classrooms and a qualified Macedonian teacher to work with you to ensure the highest quality experience for you and the students. All students involved will have some knowledge of English but need practice in using their language skills with native English speakers.
The Macedonian classrooms have limited resources so volunteers are encouraged to bring educational materials. In addition, volunteer teachers may introduce other subjects such as art and music. They will be expected to teach about 2 hours a day 5 days each week.
Volunteer teachers are free to experience the many cultural and historical offerings available in the Ohrid area during the summer.
