  • Description

    Description

    We are a public school in Chai Nat in Northern Thailand. We are looking for volunteers to help teach basic English to our 80 students from Kindergarten through 6th grade. You do not need to speak Thai. We are looking for English speakers to help our students to learn English basic conversation and verbal communication. Teaching experience is not necessary. You will be working side by side with monks and local teachers. This is a great opportunity for English speakers to learn about Thai culture and language, as well as Buddhism.

    We need your help in teaching basic English conversation to our Thai students. We already have local teachers who teach them how to read and write English, but we are looking for native English speakers to interact with the students and help them practice their language skills. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for the students learn directly from native English speakers and at the same time learn foreign culture from volunteers.
