  • Description


    Our name is Assela (founder), Elvira and Gulzira (co-owners) are three English teachers running an education center in Kulan. It is a quiet and small village in Southern part of Kazakhstan surrounded with steps and mountains.

    We are private school.
    Each class has 4-8 students of different age group. From 7 to 23 years old. They are all divided by age and level of English knowledge. We have three English language teachers from Kazakstan. They are very exited to meet with native English speakers.
    Main goal of the school is to support women and help people in local area to be able to speak English.

  • Help


    We are looking for volunteers excited to help local people learning English in my local area. Some of the help will be at education center, helping the students practice their English, and some help will need with creating a activities with teachers.

    Volunteers may be able to integrate themselves in this environment and carry out English lessons.
    Volunteers are also encouraged to get involved with other subjects and extra-curricular activities. Depending on your interests and skills, you could teach math, science, drama, art, and more.
    With some groups you can follow the text book, with others just practice their communication skills.

    Once a week we have two "Speaking Club" sessions in the morning and afternoon. The students will want to find out about you and the country you come from.

    In conclusion, the work included would be as stated above: teaching, delivering flyers/promoting the school, along with conducting the Speaking Club sessions.

    We are new organization and we are open for new people and new ideas.
