Natalislang & Chile Inside:
Voluntary Work in Chile
Voluntary work program
Social commitment is in great demand! In Latin America the social
differences are still very big. There is a huge gap between rich and poor
people. Many families live in poverty and are dependant on external help.
Ill and handicapped children are often repudiated, do not have a home
and as a consequence have to stay at hospitals or children’s homes.
Many old people live in nursing homes or on the streets. Many ill people
do not have the money to pay for the necessary surgery or medical treatment.
Experience the shady sides of life in Latin America and help giving hope
to some people.
In co-operation with different social institutions and non-profit organisations
we offer various voluntary work projects in Chile as well as in Argentina.
Usually, you work directly with the relevant people and are responsible
for the care of ill and homeless children, handicapped or old people,
homeless or support of the Mapuche Indians.

On this level you will familiarize yourselves with the following grammar constructions: I play, I am playing, I am going to play, I have played, I have to play, I like to play, I want to play, I can play and I would like to play.Basic idiomatic expressions and useful verb combinations. A large part of this level is also concerned with basic conversation and oral practice.

Sublevels : ALTE B1 – ALTE B2
Description: At this level you will begin to move onto harder grammar concepts such as the past simple, past imperfect, and past perfect tenses: I played, I was playing and I had played. In addition we teach you how to begin using the future, and the conditional tenses. Again conversation and listening exercises, both written and oral, are an important part of this level.

Description: Finally at the third level we will spend time on reviewing all you have already learnt, putting it into speaking and written practice. You will also learn a very important part of the Spanish language; the Subjunctive mode.

At the end of each level, the students must take a written and oral test
with a pass rate of 70% in order to continue with their learning process.
The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment, abbreviated as CEFR, is a guideline used to describe achievements of learners of foreign languages across Europe. It was put together by the Council of Europe as the main part of the project "Language Learning for European Citizenship" between 1989 and 1996. Its main aim is to provide a method of assessing and teaching which applies to all languages in Europe. In November 2001 a European Union Council Resolution recommended using the CEFR to set up systems of validation of language ability. The six reference levels (see below) are becoming widely accepted as the European standard for grading an individual's language proficiency.
The CEFR describes what a learner is supposed to be able to do in reading, listening, speaking and writing at each level.
A1 Can understand and use familiar everyday expressions and very basic phrases aimed at the satisfaction of needs of a concrete type. Can introduce him/herself and others and can ask and answer questions about personal details such as where he/she lives, people he/she knows and things he/she has. Can interact in a simple way provided the other person talks slowly and clearly and is prepared to help.
A2 Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
B1 Can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. Can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. Can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. Can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes & ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.
B2 Can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialization. Can I interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. Can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
C1 Can understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognize implicit meaning. Can express him/herself fluently and spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions. Can use language flexibly and effectively for social, academic and professional purposes.
