The teach Spanish abroad Uganda program is part of Ssamba Foundation’s languages’ learning project implemented in several community schools in Mukono district and at our Community Languages Centre. The program is open to Spanish nationals or any avid Spanish speakers who are interested in sharing their culture and knowledge of the Spanish language with children and adults in Uganda.
With your language skills you could teach proper pronunciation and usage. Even if you’ve never formally taught a classroom subject, you can assist the local teachers in their day to day work at the school. You don’t need to know the local language, or the methods of the local school system. All you need is enthusiasm and a desire to share your knowledge and make a difference.
Spanish is the official or main language in 20 countries in Latin America, Europe and Africa. Moreover, in recent years there has been an increasing demand for Spanish language in countries where Spanish is not the main language. If you are a Spanish language teacher and you want to volunteer teaching Spanish abroad, Ssamba Foundation welcomes you to Uganda.
More and more people in Uganda want to learn Spanish language because it represents an advantage in numerous professions such as health, customer service and tourism. Spanish is one of the most important languages in the world and represents an opportunity for native speakers as well as for foreign Spanish speakers.
This is where volunteers like you will get to make a great impact, as you strive to make an impact when you teach Spanish abroad in Uganda. By teaching locals how to speak the Spanish language and about the culture, you will be participating in a life-changing cultural exchange volunteer program, and making an investment in the lives of many Ugandans that will live within them for years to come.
