Area: Ubon Ratchthani, ThailandWe are teachers and we are good people. We are good Buddhists who follow a philosophy of 'Sufficiency Economy' of His Majesty the King. We need a volunteer who are good people, friendly, mature and not a vegetarian, to help teach our children and students English and help them speak English as much as possible. Having some experience in teaching or a certificate in TEFL is preferable. It's good for us to exchange culture with volunteers from other countries. It's also good for our children and students to practice English with English native speakers. We have Inernet at home (also at school). We don't have any pets and we are none smokers. The students are eager to learn English. The school is not far from town. The atmosphere of English class with volunteers was so great. We need volunteers every year from now on for two periods of time, the first period ( the first semester) is from May to September and the second period (the second semester) is from the middle of October to the end of February.
Area: Languedoc Roussillon, Pyrenees OrientalesWe are Ashley (37), Simon (46) and Sophia (3). We have lived in this southern-most region of France, overlooking the Spanish border since 2007. Ashley is a trained classical singer, Simon a lapsed anthropologist, who owned and ran an IT company. Simon worked in WWOOF farmsteads in the mid 90s (WWOOF - World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms). We also run guided mountain walking holidays for small groups in May and October. And we love having down to earth, friendly, intelligent and multilingual guests! We live in the mountains around Canigou 1hr from the Mediterranean on the French-Spanish border, in a truly beautiful setting. We have a large old farmhouse with several outbuildings, a swimming pool and 11 acres of land and a river. No neighbours to see or hear of! We have been creating an eco-friendly holiday business since 2006. We now have three gites, with another 2 person gite being created this year. So we can accommodate 10 guests in three buildings, soon to be 12 in four. Our own house (the old farmhouse) can accommodate a further 5 people. We have solar hot water for three of the gites and the main house. We use water from the stream, gravity-fed, and are installing a new storage tank with ozone purification and filters. We grow our own vegetables, and plan to install our own hydro-electric generator with water from one of the old aquaducts that once fed the land when it was an apple farm. We also have plans to add a very small eco camp site with two bell tents on platforms in a forest near our stream. If time permits before this Summer season (on top of all the other jobs) we would like to build a chicken coop (to keep them safe from ferrets, foxes, eagles and maybe even the griffon vultures that fly in these parts). Otherwise we've only a few cats and koi carp at the moment, as sadly our lovely friend Zouky the donkey recently died.
