Hello everyone :)
I'm Dee, a charming and easy going woman :). I am from Klaten, Central Java Indonesia. I am an English teacher in hotel and cruise ship training school. Why I'm here now because I love teaching :) and my goal is to help people in my local area in order they are able to speak English. I'm a big believer in "think globally act locally ".
I really appreciate the workaway projects. The chance to see places from a local, the world community, meet new and interesting people and make good friendship to be useful to each others while do some volunteer or work together and learn how do they work with amazing experiences from all around the world.
We do need some help from the native speakers who are able to help us to have lots of practice for speaking English. Our students wanted to learn more and practice their English with foreigner directly (as tutor). These students, they are finding the way how to build their self confidence to speak English. So, if you want to gain your skills and experiences in these field feel free to join us.
We may look different, speak different languages and even eat different foods but fundamentally we are all ‘One’. Through love and understanding you yourself can really live in harmony with the wonderful locals. Spend your days teaching, cooking and singing together.
We are looking for dedicated individuals who are motivated to help us make a change for the better education, especially in Learning English.
Spread your wings and have fun living, loving and learning together! :)
Volunteering is a chance to sleep in a local, Indonesian-style house, sample fresh, home-cooked fare and socialize with a group of inquisitive and friendly young Indonesians. If you are about traveling to Indonesia, especially Klaten please do not hesitate to contact me. We would be happy if you are happy learning and staying with us as a volunteer.
Klaten (Central Java) is a small city. It is very close to Yogyakarta and Solo located in between two big cities which is the strategic place to get some beautiful tourism places (Prambanan temple, Borobudur temple, Plaosan temple, Parangtritis beach, etc).
The beautiful places are yours when you join us, you are very welcome to share your experiences, knowledge, cultures, skills and smile of course :)

1).Guests will stay in our school and It is comfortable enough, but you can also stay in my own house or local family who lives in their family home. Living with local families is an excellent experience that exposes guests to the real everyday life in Indonesia as they interact with the other residents, engage in the everyday activities of an Indonesian family, and even have the opportunity to learn a bit of Bahasa Indonesia and the Central Javanese language. Needless to say, the homestay alone is worth the experience!
2).We could provide food for guest but you can also have your own option to get food by yourself.
We have five days working.
After doing a volunteer project a few hours in a day, normally we usually take our guest to the tourist attraction, such as:
