Come and join us at a guesthouse in the Golden Triangle! I have 2 sons (aged 7 and 12). We all speak good level of English but we would like to improve on our language skills.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We live in the Golden Triangle, a popular backpacking destination, which is situated in Chiang Saen with easy access (on the border) to get to Laos and Myanmar.
Our family speaks Thai and you would have the opportunity to learn the language. You will see our way of life on a daily basis and you will get to try out the local cuisine. The sun rises and sets very close to where we live, so you can see that too!
Also, we have 3 families close by who are also taking part in this programme so you will get to meet other Workawayers as well!
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We would love to have a fluent English-speaking volunteer (native speaker is preferred) to help us practise English. As my younger son is home-schooled, I would be grateful if the volunteer can help with teaching other subjects as well (maths, science, other languages, sports, etc.) My older son is going to a state school but he would also benefit from practising his English when he is at home.
Chinese (Mandarin): Fluent
You will have your own room with ensuite bathroom. We will also provide 2meals (local food) a day.
What else ...
We have a bike that you can borrow so you can cycle around the area. There are a few temples and other tourist attractions around so feel free to explore. City centre of Chiang Saen is about 10 kilometers away. We are close to various transport links (coaches to Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai) and local amenities (7Eleven, resturants).
