  • Description


    Dear nice volunteers,

    My name is Mrs. Nanat. I am 41 years old. And my friend's name is Miss Fern. We are the English Teachers in primary school from the government. The students in school are naughty but lovely so much :).
    I and Fern really want to improve the students about the English language. We work in the same school and we have the same way for teaching, so we are here to ask from the nice volunteers to help us improve our way of teaching.

    For me, I have 2 children in my family. No pets. We enjoy to talk and share our experiences with others who want to come and join our company. We are an easy-going person who always smiles and laughs at things all around.
    We used to have a few volunteers came here and help us for teaching. All of them were so nice and sure for now we are nice friends who always keep in touch with each other.

    Now, I and Fern prefer to try to find someone nice by ourselves. This is the reason why I try to make a connection from Workaway. It is my best luck that I can be here to meet someone nice who really want to help my poor students improve their English skill from their nice heart.

    Thank you so much for your viewing. I wish we will have a chance to join each other to improve the students and make them, but also us get better in English. :):) Moreover, you will have a nice opportunity to learn more about our culture. It is my great pleasure to let you know our real Thai style^^ we have many things nice in Thailand and in my hometown.

    What you can expect from us:
    - Your own room with a bed and bathroom
    - 2-3 meals per day
    - Great company with my family and friends :)
    - Work for 3-5 hours every day for 3-5 days per week
    - Your own transport to and from the school, or ride with us (morning 8am afternoon 5pm)
    - Travel around the area; Thai silk; Khao Yai National Park; Koh Rat city; Temples

    What we expect of you:
    - Stay at least 2 weeks
    - Help with teaching the students
    - Help with teaching the teachers
    - Help the school improve by watching and giving advice
    - Be friendly and polite; it is the Thai culture
    - Be flexible
    - (Play games with the children)

    PS. If someone can be here for more than 2-4 weeks it will be great for us. Because of the volunteers who used to be here they always feel so nice after two weeks and we can see it is not enough to learn about all Thai styles. Anyhow, we can talk and decide together :)

    with all my warm regards.
    Nanat & Fern

  • Help


    Someone who can teach the students in school, but hopefully also the teachers. Our English is not perfect, but we have got to teach our students better English. In your country you have good schools and maybe you can watch our school and give advice. Have a nice view to live with the naughty students who really want to talk with the foreigner but has not good English speaking.
    Also be flexible and polite, our school can be a little chaotic, but so many lovely students that want to meet you and want to say hello to you :):)
