Please find some programme details as follows:

Lovvol encourages our Ambassadors to explore China in an
engaging manner. We aim to foster cultural understanding and introduce
Ambassadors to the Chinese language and way of life, inspiring the next
generation of Chinese children to learn English and broaden their horizons.
Currently we offer three distinctive programmes:

Cultural Exchange – some classroom teaching (English)
combined with a range of cultural workshops, blended learning activities and
excursions; 

Inspiring Futures – a progressive holistic education
programme developed by our partner Future Foundations – to be delivered by our
Ambassadors to Chinese children. The differentiating factor is the
consideration given to the development of ‘emotional intelligence’ alongside
our core objectives of cultural exchange and language progression.

LOVVOL Adventurer – For the first time this year we have
teamed up with a summer camp provider specialising in water sports and
adventure activities for young children. If you are the sporty adventurous type
this might be a great way to combine a new cultural experience in China,
teaching and developing your leadership skills

How we operate & Role Descriptions:

Ambassador: Depending on the specific programme, Ambassadors
are asked to complete pre-departure research and training. After arrival in
China or Mongolia, Ambassadors will engage with school children, aged from 7-16
years old in groups of around 20. There will be no compulsory textbook for
teaching. However, sample materials will be provided. Teaching is normally
focused on conversational English and cultural workshops, while the format for
activity-based classes is active group learning and participation, for example
real situation English, outdoor activities, culture exchange and teaching
English songs etc; Support and assistance from experienced teachers will be
provided at the local institutions, so Ambassadors can develop confidence
gained from the pre-departure studying and training.

Start and end date:

1/07/2017 – 31/08/2017

Duration:

4 weeks to 2 months depending on student applicants’
availability and the programme

Skills and qualifications:

None required. Any previous teaching or volunteering abroad
experience or Mandarin language skills would be beneficial

Essentials:

All ambassadors must have a native level of spoken English,
and also enthusiasm, motivation and a willingness to interact with children and
embrace the experience!

How to apply

Please log on our website to register your interest or apply
at http://www.lovvol.org/apply/.
Alternatively, please contact enquiries@lovvol.org
for further enquiries. Places are limited and it is on first come first
reserved basis.

Benefits

Full-board accommodation are provided in addition to

trips etc) for free

College Bar Opening Times

The college bar will now be unlocked from 10am every morning so that if you wish to work in there, or socialise, you can use the space during the morning. The bar will still begin service at 12:30pm as usual, and the bar staff have asked that if you are using the bar in the mornings you keep it tidy so they do not have extra work when they arrive at lunchtime!

Welfare Tea and Coffee in the Bar

Every day during exam season, welfare afternoon tea is running in the college bar from 3:00pm – 3:30pm. Get down to the bar for free tea/coffee and biscuits, and the opportunity to get out the library and have a chilled mid-afternoon break.

General Election 2017

The 2017 General Election will take place on June 8th, and registration to vote in this election is open until 11:59pm on Monday 22nd May (next Monday). I would strongly encourage you all to register to vote in this election, as at the last General Election the Cambridge seat was decided by fewer votes than there are members of John’s, so this is an area is which your vote can really make a difference. Registration can be completed online through this link (https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote), and only takes a few minutes.

Café Synthetique is the monthly meetup for the Cambridge synthetic biology community with informal talks, discussion and pub snacks.
