  • Description

    Description

    My name is John . I live at Ngadirejo It is located at the center of Central Java, about 3 hours from Yogyakarta. I live with my wife and a son .My eldest son lives in East Kalimantan ( Borneo ) he has married with Dayak Tribe, My daughter lives in Cilacap she works in Immigration Department , she has a little daughter . I am an English teacher . I teach in Vocational High School students average of my students are 15 to 17 years old beside I teach at home for the private students . Most of them do not have enough chance to communicate in English in their school. Even they rare see people speak English in their English class.
    Every month I invite you, foreigners, as volunteers to help my students at school and at home. On weekends, we invite you to visit the interesting places around Temanggung and neighboring towns such as Borobudur temple at Magelang, royal palaces in Yogyakarta, Dieng plataeau at Wonosobo,It is not so far from my home when it is short cut it is beautiful hills, traditional arts, dances, exotic resorts, Tea Plantation , do mount climbing, playing music, beautiful waterfall. Near my village. New temple which is now explored by the archeologists of my regency which hasn’t finished yet. Actually it is very huge temple it is the second hindu’s temple after The temple in Dieng Plateau.
    Fortunately, most of the volunteers were happy to stay with us . because I am a new Host of Workawayers If you are interested in visiting us you can stay for weeks, or months. If you are a volunteer from Europe who speak English or an English native speaker, I am waiting forward to welcoming you at my home at Temanggung. It is of course, a safe town to stay. It is not tourist area so not so many foreigners ( tourist ) in my town We can have 2-3 volunteers to stay together. in Indonesian houses with friendly neighborhood and wi-fi connection. At school The main job is as a partner to make people speak better at home , at school where I have been teaching for 35 years.

    Warmest Regards for all .Thanks
    John and Family
