Teaching and Beach in Thailand

Give back to the local Thai community as you teach English in schools
    Overview icon

    Overview

    This program consists of working with students in various schools teaching English. We have strong relationships with several child development centers, kindergarten, primary and secondary schools and the age of the students may be anywhere between 2.5 and 18.

    Many of the schools are open to new concepts and approaches to teaching. This means that you may be able to share your new ideas and teaching strategies that might complement the local Thai teaching methods or style.

    Our teaching program serves a dual purpose: of course, it is meant to help children in rural Thailand to have a chance to speak more English (usually even their teachers are not fluent speakers).

    Secondly, it will give you an insight into the Thai education system, as well as a good chance to develop friendships with students and teachers.

    • You will leave the center between 08:30 and 09:30 depending on the school. Expect to teach for 2-3 hours. Lunch will usually be served at the school and you will leave school each day after the morning session.
    • The school shows respect to the King of Thailand through a ceremony daily and you might be asked to take part in this unique morning ritual.
    • Please take note of the long holidays (mid-March till mid-May and October) as well as public holidays. During such times you can join special classes and English camps that are regularly requested by the local community. In the event that the need in this time is at the local child development center, please keep in mind that you will be working with young children who will require a much different approach than primary or secondary school. Please use your creative skills through song, dance, games, and repetition to help young children to learn and enjoy their introduction to basic educational concepts.

    Objectives

    • For this particular program, the aims and objectives fall under the jurisdiction of the Thai government. In recent years, the government has placed a continued emphasis on the teaching of the English language. Despite this, English literacy rates in Thailand remain one of the lowest in Asia.
    • Our aim is to continue to improve the children’s prospects by teaching them English. On the other hand, you will also gain teaching experience, an invaluable life skill!

    Impact

    Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
