    Description

    Hello, my name is Yok.
    I am an english teacher at a Highschool. It is a highschool with about 340 students and 30 teachers. The school is located in the north eastern part of Thailand, in the province Chaiyaphum.

    Right now I am trying to start a volunteer project at my village. Well,during the day you can go to my farm with my husband who was a farmer about my farm we plant sugarcane and casava.In night time you may teach my kid english.But because of i am a teacher so you also joining us at school as an english teacher too.We have many students, who want to learn english and other languages. They are also interested in other cultures and countries. Many of them are a little bit shy to speak english, but with your help they hopefully get more confidence in their speaking skills.
    Our school director is very friendly and openminded to welcome volunteers.

    In october this year we had two volunteers stay at my home. They stayed here for two weeks and participated in many activities and taught a lot. On their second day at school they organized their own timetable. They taught ~5 lessons per day. Due to this it is the best, if you can stay for a longer time. (If you stay for just one week, it is difficult to get a connection to the students. Further you can organize your lessons better, see your teaching success and the progress of the children.)
    We will manage your own timetable with you and support you during the lessons. Don't be afraid of your english skills, we take every help we can get and in most classes it is simple teaching of basics!
    School starts every morning at 7:30, the last hour ends at 15:50. After this, the sport activities of the students start (of course you can join them)!
    At school you have to wear long trousers and shoulder-covering shirts.

    In addition to the teaching you can help me raising my little 3-years daughter and practice speaking english with her in the evening. On most of the weekends my husband, my daughter and me go to my parents village. If you want, you can join us and help my husband working in the farm there!

    What else ...

    The school and I will offer many activities to you. For example we have a Thai music group, Thai dancing, a badminton team and a futsal group. The badminton group plays every weekday after school and you can practice and play very long with them.
    During the week you will be at school most of the time. In the evening you can spend time with my family and maybe drink some beer with my husband, if you want ;) Sometimes we have dinner at houses of our friends or relatives and you will be invited to join!

    When you come with us on weekend, there is the possibility to visit the National Park or the famous Moh Hing Khao (the "Stonehenge of Thailand").
    My husband is very skilled at hunting and fishing. He loves outdoor sports and activities and you can go with him, he would be glad about that :)
