    Description

    Hi volunteers! I'm Zara and I'm very passionate about teaching. I love kids and I'm a mother of two. Last year I opened a linguistic school to help local kids improve and practice their English. I need a second hand in my school as we lack fluent English teachers and our local teachers here aren't the best. We need volunteers that can speak fluent English to practice with our students. Classes in our school are divided based on students' English language proficiency.

    Our school is located right in the center of Karakol, a small town in the east of Kyrgyzstan. Karakol like the rest of the country is beautiful. 94% of the territory of Kyrgyzstan is occupied with mountains. You will find gorgeous nature - imagine fantastic fields covered by bright green grass, high fir-trees, lots of rivers, and snowcapped mountains. You can get a bus from Bishkek to Karakol which would take about 6 hours.

    If you are passionate in teaching and would love to know more about Kyrgyzstan, volunteering with us is the best. Our students will be really happy to have you around!

    Feel free to write to me if you have questions or would like to know more about my school. I’d be happy to share more and answer any questions you may have. Thanks and looking forward to hear from you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Kyrgyzstan is interesting - not just by its nature but also by its culture. The Kyrgyz are rooted as nomadic and up to this day have all attributes of the nomadic life. Kyrgyz people are very hospitable, kind, and easygoing. Staying with a local family allows you to be in touch with our culture and live like a local. All my students are very eager in meeting foreigners and they would be glad to host you.

    We need volunteers that are passionate and eager to teach and practice English with our students. Must encourage our students to talk in English and come up with activities that would improve our student's English language proficiency. You don't have to be an experienced teacher. As long as you are fluent in English and open to teaching, we would love to have you here! We also need creative people who could make our school more fun and colourful.

    Accommodation may vary but one thing's for sure - we will provide you with a Kyrgyz host family. Karakol is a small town and some families might not have good conditions like a proper bathroom or shower but this shouldn't be a problem, right? You will be staying with one of our student's family. Kyrgyz people are very hospitable and loving and they would be happy to welcome you to their family.

    What else ...

    On your free days, you can easily explore nearby stunning attractions and there is a lot to explore! Glaciers, waterfalls, canyons, hot springs, mountains, valleys, rivers, and many more. Karakol's location is well connected with Bishkek, the capital city, and as well as the countryside. You can do lots of trekking and even horse tours.
