    I am the Director of an English learning centre and am looking for volunteers (both native and non-native English speakers) to help with my learning centre.
    Depending on your experience, you can either be a teaching assistant (helping local Khmer teachers) or lead the class yourself and produce lesson plans etc. Or you could begin as a teaching assistant and progress to leading the class as your confidence grows.
    Volunteers would work from Monday-Friday and the hours are flexible and can range from 3-4 hours a day covering either morning, afternoon and/or evening classes. The students' ages range from 3-12 years plus an adult evening class.
    The school is half NGO and half social enterprise and is self-sustaining relying on student contributions and donations.

    Other must-see attractions include the nearby floating villages on the shores of beautiful Tonle Sap Lake, the greatest water reserve in Southeast Asia.
    The name Siem Reap literally means "Siamese defeated", referring to the victory of the Khmer Empire over the army of the Thai kingdom in the 17th century.
    During your free time, you can explore the stunning local countryside by bicycle, motorbike or tuk tuk - and discover lush rice paddy fields, rural villages with friendly smiling locals, and a wealth of beautiful temples.
