    Making new friends and building confidence outside of the classroom

Set in rural villages around the Maekok River Basin, you will have the opportunity to join the English department and teach English on your own at a rural government school. Pronunciation is where they need the most help so you may even get some teachers sitting in on your lessons or wanting after school sessions. Free time in school is spent lesson planning and marking books. There is also time for sports, as well as art and music for those who are keen on extra-curricular activities. The more you put in, the more you will get out of your project.

The more you put into community life and getting to know the locals, the more you will understand about this amazing country. You will have the opportunity to build skills and in particular skills that can be transferred to the workplace, for example thinking on your feet, dealing with pressure, problem-solving, overcoming challenges, independence, responsibility and many more.

Spare time is spent preparing your lessons with your volunteer partner, marking books, or with the other volunteers and your new friends (neighbours and teachers). We encourage volunteers to get to know the locals – the teachers could even invite you to dinner.

The 11 week teaching project is followed by a 4 week period of independent group travel with 24-hour support
