Fruit picking. Couldn’t miss putting this one on our list! This time, we’ve chosen the UK, Kent countryside. It is great for meeting new people, since you are expected to live in portacabins, in a hostel-like atmosphere: sharing a room with five people, with communal kitchens provided and separate washrooms and toilets. You are expected to work 8 hours a day, seven days a week, so it can be physically demanding. And also, keep in mind that you earn around £50 per day, but you have to pay around £35 per week for the accommodation (it automatically gets deducted from your paycheck). There is no food included, put you get to share your expenses with the people you share the accomodation with. If you like fresh air and don’t mind getting a tan – this could be a great option for you! Plus, young people from all over the world apply for the job, so it is a great opportunity to make new friends. Make sure you read and study through all the information regarding the application for the job and see if you are eligible. The UK may not be a good option for you if you don’t have an EU passport.
Do you have amazing English skills and love teaching? Maybe you’ve always wanted to go to Florence or Rome. Now, you can! The English Camp Company has opened positions for English teachers in Italy. You can arrange your stay between one and three months, depending on your preferences. You could be taking a part in fun, interactive teaching, in the atmosphere of a summer camp. Working with children can be inspiring, and you can also meet new people, expand your social network and travel around. Just a small note: they say in the requirements that native English speakers are needed, but if you have excellent language skills and maybe even certificates to confirm your qualifications – we advise you to apply. If you scroll down and take a look at the testimonies, you can see that a young woman from Poland got accepted as a teacher, and she taught English as a foreign language. This testimony, as well as the others, are extremely positive and show the benefits of taking this kind of journey, so take your time to read them through – maybe you’ll get inspired to apply!
