Volunteers focus on improving speaking and listening skills and building the children’s confidence to communicate in English. Volunteers design lessons which are fun and include lots of interaction. Lessons may vary depending on age and ability but may include:
Volunteers teach at a primary school, with children aged 4 – 12 years old. You may teach on your own or with another volunteer.
Teaching experience is not a requirement, we simply ask that volunteers are enthusiastic and imaginative and willing to learn as you teach. You can choose to do a TEFL Course before you go which you may find helpful for gathering resources and building your own confidence in Teaching English.
Koh Phangan has rapidly developed over the past few years and many of the jobs on the island now relate to tourism. As English is important is the main tourist language in Thailand, English language skills open to doors to better jobs or access to further education. The project provides volunteers that help local children build their confidence in conversational English.
The children on Koh Phangan do not have the chance to meet and learn English from international English speakers and so volunteers help them to develop their listening and speaking skills. They also help to build their confidence, by making learning English fun and interactive.
Volunteers teach in local government schools where the majority of children are from low income families. Additional lessons provide a unique opportunity for children to excel at English.
