Volunteer Teaching English In Thailand

Trat, Thailand Education

Program

Description

In Thailand, where tourism is the country’s number one industry, English language proficiency can be the path to a bright future in employment for Thai school-leavers. Join the uVolunteer Teaching English Project and help under-resourced schools provide this vital opportunity for their students. Working as a teacher’s assistant in elementary schools and Buddhist temples throughout Trat, you’ll help students develop and build their conversational English skills, coming up with loose lesson plans and fun, educational activity ideas. In Thailand’s urban centers, English education is a priority, but in poorer rural areas like Trat most schools have limited resources and cannot employ a native English language teacher as a result. Staff and students are friendly, welcoming and grateful to English-speaking international volunteers, who dedicate their time and effort to helping Thai students broaden their prospects.

Impact
