Camino English, the social platform for English learners, is getting back to its roots and relaunching.
Having been around for a few years now, the site’s original intention of melding love for travel with English learning was lost. But not anymore! We have found our feet and we are back on our way once more, now focusing on all things travel and using English to help guide us and connect us to each other.
Camino English is about the journeys we make. And most people, especially English teachers (native and non-native alike), have a deep love for travel and connecting with others. There are adventures to be lived and shared, cultures to be experienced, lessons to be learned and stories to tell. But we also know that travel is made easier when you can understand and speak English.
For this reason, the new content to be found on the Camino English blog will be travel focussed and orientated with stories and experiences being an integral part of the content posted. Even grammar posts will be travel-inspired.
Teachers And Language Professionals!
Camino English, though, is more than just a blog and a social platform where users will be able to connect with other learners.
On Camino English, users will be able to view teacher profiles and get in contact directly with teachers so as to find the right person to help guide them on their English-learning journey. Users can explain their needs, the reasons why they are seeking an English teacher, and finally, reach an agreement on a price for the services required.
The best part is that it is absolutely FREE for teachers to sign up and participate. And since Camino English will take no part in the conversation between the user and language professional, we will not take any commission.
That’s right. No slice of your pie for us.
There is no joining fee for teachers, no annual membership that needs to be paid or renewed, and none of your hard-earned money lost or given over to a third party.
So, what’s the catch?
Aside from filling in a profile (with your name, a clear photo, and information like your experience teaching English, your language interests or specialisations, and places you lived or visited), Camino English asks for you to submit only one short article every three months to remain active on the platform.
What we’re asking for are short travel pieces.
Vignettes, anecdotes, reviews or thoughts on a place you have visited or somewhere you have stayed. Perhaps, a moment you remember or a lesson you learnt. It could be a short piece with advice you wished you had known before travelling or living abroad. It could even be an interesting bit on how English (or even a few words in another language) saved you from trouble.
Teachers And Language Professionals Camino English Is Looking For
We’re looking for experienced teachers and language professionals with a high level of English from many different places around the world. If you’ve travelled and can share your experience, we want to hear from you.
We are also interested in interpreters, translators, editors and proofreaders to participate on Camino English as users may very well be in need of these services.
