  • Description


    I live in the central city of Jambi which is not a big city. At the moment I live alone in my house. I am working as a government officer as a language researcher under the Department of Education and Culture of Indonesia. In the afternoon, I run a small English institution r one and a half hour per meeting. They are always enthusiastic to practice their English with people from around the world, that's why I always welcome people to come and help me. I also teach in the classes of some public schools in my city. In these schools, I usually invite my friends to be a guest . I will take them to be with me to see the class. Mostly, based on my experience, either the students and my friends are successful to create a great session. English native speakers are not necessarily needed. I need people from all around the world who can communicate in English and share stories with the students. I also actively write in my blog sharing some tips how to live in Indonesia, for example, how to eat in the family house or Padang restaurant, how to use squat toilets, how to interact with local people, and so on. I hope it can be useful for those who want to come to Indonesia.
