English for tour guides

Post by Alix » Tue Jul 20, 2004 6:06 pm

help! This is getting to be a nightmare!
Context - teaching potential tour guides on the Isla del Sol on Lake Titicaca (Bolivia) - most have shaky Spanish - generally speak Aymara - low literacy rate - but these guys know what they are talking about. Does anyone know where we can get general simple phrases, etc. If not I will have to write the course and I don't have time!
Anyone there want to come and teach?

Hi there,
I am a teacher of English at a school of tourism and hotel management in Santa Clara, central Cuba.
We do not train tour guides, but hotel line-staff and I have designed some modest teaching materials for occupational purposes.
Should you be interested in taking a glance, drop me a line.
My email address is [email protected]
After February 15th it might change to [email protected]
I'd be glad to help.

Hey everybody and anybody

I have tried both email adresses that Leonar from Cuba left in his posting here. I received both back as undeliverable. Leonar!!!!, if you're out there, drop me a line!! Sounds like you may have the stuff I would more than appreciate for these farmers wives.

I would also appreciate any other info out there on teaching tourism English.
