Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful country of four seasons. In summer people go for swimming and beach vacation to many lakes throughout the country. But the main lake is of course Issyk-Kul, which is located 230 km away from Bishkek.
As a capital city Bishkek is logistically convenient location to outreach any destination and sightseeing in Kyrgyzstan. Within maximum 30 km around Bishkek we have more than 5 ski bases you can enjoy in winter. The same distance you need to capture to go for hiking and trekking in spring and fall seasons.
More than 5 major ethnic groups live in our country: Kyrgyz, Russian.Uzbek, Kazakh, Tajik. and more than 80 other ethnic groups. Likewise cuisine is also broadly presented in Bishkek: you can find American, Italian, Turkish, Indian, Arabic, Chinese and many other kitchens in the city.
Because our country is mainly agricultural, mainly people try to consume local organic and natural food. Products are pretty cheap in Bishkek.
You can explore a lot from our school activities, such as holidays, events and trips. According to annual Activity plan we visit museums, companies, banks, army colleges, national parks etc.
As well we invite different famous people for guest lectures and masterclasses. In this regard, we are thankful to our partners: US Embassy, Ministry of Education of Kyrgyzstan, National Chess Federation and many others.
What we do understand, is that besides STEM knowledges, our students need to develop their English language skills in order to discover the whole world of new opportunities.
Therefore, we are looking for an open-minded, energetic and creative volunteers who can help in improving language skills of students, teach them arts, math, sports and crafting.
Our volunteers will work as an assistant teachers. According to the qualification we will take a decision whether volunteers can teach independently or can assist in preparation and conducting lessons (English, arts, sports etc.,) organizing interactive games. Particularly, our talking club is most beloved class, when students are most motivated to keep improving their English.
Taking into account quickly changing world, we are open to any new ideas, approaches and joint projects.
Our students' parents with interesting professional background and traditional values are interested in hosting international guests and and ready to share about our culture.
If all the host families are occupied school will provide you with accommodation and food during your stay in the city.
We do not charge and ask any fee for accommodation, 3 times food at school, joining our school trips and anything else.
We are open to discuss the duration and the schedule of your stay and work in Bishkek and willing to make it as comfortable as possible.
Should you decide to go for traveling school can help you out with arrangements.
As a participant of Student Exchange Program (FLEX) and a graduate of US High School, I assume that I understand expectations, excitement and fears of our foreign guests. This is why I am very much interested to make your visit to Kyrgyzstam an unforgettable one and keep you coming back in the future.
