Warm Welcome

Thank you for your interest in becoming a foreign language tutor. You don’t have to be a teacher or have a foreign language qualification to become a volunteer tutor for Bahasa Basudara. All we ask from you is some spare time, your commitment, enthusiasm, and interest in teaching conversational classes to Moluccan students all over Indonesia. You will be conducting these classes via Zoom or Skype and a facilitator or teacher will always be present. As a volunteer you will be helping our students with their language skills, and in return it will give you the opportunity to learn about their lives, the Moluccan islands, and its rich culture. As a native or fluent speaker of the English, German or Dutch language, you will be teaching the same class of Moluccan students for a period of eight to ten weeks. Our students have been tested on their abilities and the classes are coordinated by selected language schools and universities in the Moluccas and the rest of Indonesia. Tell us what level of tutoring you’re comfortable with and we’ll match you with the right class. The subjects can be discussed beforehand with the facilitator or teacher, and you can of course make your own suggestions. You can either come up with your own lesson plan and if you’re stuck you can refer to our Resources page for help and inspiration. Although the emphasis will be on conversation, you may at times have to discuss certain grammatical issues. Again, if you need help with this, please refer to the Resources page. If you are fluent in another language other than English, German or Dutch, do let us know. Important: please note that Bahasa Basudara is not responsible for the content of conversations and lessons or the behaviour of the participants. We thoroughly believe in a non-discrimination and participants are discouraged from discussing politics, religion, race, or ethnic issues. By joining us you agree to these conditions. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
