Travel to Thailand and take part in a cultural exchange that will leave you forever in love with the serene people, wildlife, jewel-like landscapes and perfect beaches that this magical destination has to offer. Teaching English to children in a school will help you integrate with local communities and give you a privileged insight into Thai culture and customs. In your spare time you can explore the exquisite Thai countryside discovering ancient temples, overgrown ruins, nature reserves and wildlife sanctuaries.
During your placement you will be teaching in Thai schools to help the students broaden their minds and for you to enjoy a fulfilling experience. You can teach English by using real-life scenarios, games and other activities. There is a lot of freedom for you to bring in your own creative ideas and teaching tools into the classroom. The aim is to improve the children’s prospects by teaching them English. On the other hand, you will also gain teaching experience, an invaluable life skill!
Nobody expects you to teach the students to speak English fluently in four weeks – it is more important for the children to develop an interest and a desire to learn English and to have exposure to foreign volunteers and to learn about the world outside of their community.
