Hello there, my name is Amma. I live in a small town and its named palopo. It is about 365 km northen makassar. I live with my husband and my children. I have a project teaching English for everyone in my village. Because i know English is an universal language, it will open our eyes to wide world and we can go every where by speaking English and without lost. We need volunteers who can help us teaching or practicing English with the children and teenagers. The main activity of the volunteers is to run the English class. 3 times a week and 1 hour of teaching for a day in the afternoon. You are free during the mornings and weekends. The levels are mixed with 10-20 kids in each class. It is a good thing to have you to divide the classes in small groups. We are trying to focused on oral English; we want these children and teenagers to feel comfortable at speaking English. Fun activities during the class are gonna being good to keep them to interested and helping with their memories. If you are an artistic or anylistic person, we would be happy to hear some ideas about how to develop the foundation in the future. A volunteer book is kept with all of previously taught lessons so you can have an idea of what to know. Please, Open your heart to make the children happy and being smart, dont holding the knowledge but share it for the next generation.
So i hope to see you soon. 😊

But you can also have the option to get food by yourself. (you can going out to have lunch or dinner in local restaurant and it's called, warung makan). There are many cheap meals around my city. We have a kitchen and a traditional bathroom,but we don't have a western style showers but i know you can adapt it.
We are happy to show you around if you want to. When the class are off in the weekend, you can go sightseeing in my village. Go to an island with tradisional boat called katinting and i am sure it is a fun activity. Or go to toraja because toraja is near from palopo.
