    Hello everyone,
    My family and me, we are a simple, open minded but not quite your ordinary family and we love learning and discovering new things in life. We have been hosting travellers in my home for a few years (on other hospitality sites) and I would like to continue doing that – cultural and help exchange. I am currently running my own private English course. My goal as the principal of the school is to provide youth from my region with the English skills required to communicate better in the modern world, and therefore provide them with better opportunities in their lifes. Thus, my mission is to make English as a habit in my school. So that my students will get used to speak English.

    I want to welcome volunteers , native or non-native speakers, who speak reasonable English to assist me with basically conversation but equally teaching and learning activity in the classroom. You just have to be confident, friendly, independent, and responsible. In the context having simple conversations with students and give them a actual English speaking experience inside (or outside) the classroom.

    The students start from 7 of age up to adult-students, most of them are a little bit shy but they are sweet and well-behaved. It would be good if you can stay with us for at least 2 days.

    Dumai currently doesn’t receive many tourists and consequently, I and my students have rarely practiced with foreigners.
    My home as well as my private school is located at the centre of Dumai city with Malay culture. Dumai is not exactly a place that one would visit for trips or holidays, but it makes a nice stop over for those coming in from Melacca, Batam or Penang to Sumatera island (Bukittinggi, Lake Toba and Padang).

    No credentials are required. Don’t worry if you don’t have previous experience in teaching. I don’t really need experienced teachers, your presence in the classroom and your efforts in encouraging students to have simple conversations will be very valuable, but if you have teaching experience, well Awesome !!

    All the students are very welcoming and curious about having visitors and I am certain that you will have a great experience while interacting with them. You can expect answering all their curious questions, pose for pictures and be invited for food and hangout, I think you will be in the right place. Come be part of my family and enjoy the best experience in Dumai!

    If you decide that you want to spend your time with a simple, open-minded Asian family, do drop me a line. I hope to host you at in Dumai, stay in my house with my family, join my English course and introduce you the unique culture of Indonesia.

    I, my students and my family look forward to welcoming you to Dumai, Riau. I am very spontaneous, don't hesitate to text me or drop by when you feel getting together, I am managing to pick you up by the time of your arrival. And “Welcome to your second home in Dumai!”

    Volunteers can share or teach English a few hours a day. In exchange for your help/in return for your efforts, I offer you peaceful, private accommodation in a private room behind my house with its own separate entrance and private bathroom, with shared facilities and shared meals. I am very happy to welcome creative people who can bring new and refreshing ideas for my course. If you have a good idea how to teach English with fun, just tell me. I need much advise from you to make my students more fluent and confidence to speak English.

    You are most welcomed to dine together with my family and try our home cooked meal if the food suits you. I will provide simple breakfast, water, dinner and unlimitted coffee. Dishes are prepared by my wonderful mom and you will be able to taste true local cuisine. We are not vegan or vegetarian you but we do our best to eat healthily. If you have special diet requirement and want to prepare your own meal, you can use the kitchen or cook together with my mom. It is my pleasure and joy to host and share with volunteers!.

    Vegetarians welcome but know that vegetarians are not common in my place so I will need your help navigating your dietary needs. If you are vegan, I and my students happily drop you by and accompany to the vegetarian cafe. You may have your own option to get food by yourself, I will show you good places and cheap price for traditional foods with unique taste. Fresh food supplies are aplenty, with wet market, wholesale market and supermarket 15-20 minutes walk away.

    In your free time, I and my students would like to introduce you to the local culture and will help organize your visits to places worth visiting in my town and in Sumatera.

    I can offer travel advice, local knowledge, travel stories lots of books also travel guide books, occasional short road trip with students, outdoor activities such as riding motorcycle, sight-seeing, walking and much more! We would love to teach you Malay or other local language, and of course Bahasa Indonesia if you like. If you speak Spain, German, Dutch or whatever your mother-tongue is – we would love to learn from you – but what are the odds! We are also looking at opportunities to hold language exchange session locally – let me know too if you have experience in that.

    Classes in my school run from morning to evening and mostly consist of three lessons per day. I would also like to invite you to visit government schools in the mornings after or before the class, where you can help me by talking with students there and promoting my English course program.

    The evening class mostly consists of adult-students, I usually finish the class around 9 p.m as some of them are schooling. But we can stay up conversing or having meal outside all night with our visitors. You can take your time off to explore nearby places or visiting mangrove forest not so far from my house. It would be a great experience for the students to accompany you around Dumai. They are eager to show you the real Indonesia, in a town where the locals are genuinely interested in meeting you.

    You will experience the local culture, taste the local food and eat a lot of tropical fruits. In short, I and my students will do our best to take you to see interesting and untouristed sites around Dumai: local beaches, night market, even some visitors celebrate their birthday with my students!Work here is very easy and relaxed. You'll be joining classes throughout the day and answering question about yourself and interacting with our students. Even though they are shy sometimes they are very interested in meeting and sharing with foreigners.

    Hopefully you can stay for at least one to two weeks, if you'd like to stay longer we'd be very happy.

    I have a spare room that I use for storage and to accommodate guest. I will prepare the room as comfortable as possible. The room has a standing fan, mattresses, table and chair that you can use. Floor space is available and large enough with bedding matting, luggage and all your traveling goods. There are clothesline to hang your stuff.

    There is a mini bus called "oplet" in Dumai and also pedicab, however people mostly use private motorcycle or car. I don't suggest you to ride a public transportation since I and my students will manage drop and pick you up wherever you are in this town.
