  • Description


    Hello Dear Workawayers
    My name is Thon I’m 26 years old married man. My English Class opened in 2019 ( There are three classrooms ) in Nakai district, Khammoune Province Lao PDR which is nearby Namthuen 2 reservoir. The reason why I try to find a volunteer who is interested in English teaching for improving the local teachers like me and students in Nakai. Nakai is one of the rural areas in Laos, but many travelers like making the Thakhek loop traveling ( My class located on the way to the Thakhek Loop). There are the temple, waterfall, orchids path, beautiful reservoir close to our school. I’m trying to make a good English class for local people. Due to the language barrier, it's hard for travelers to talk with the local people and find the location to stay and eat. Come to help them and improve their English for our local area, English teaching by foreigners for the local people is very important. Because foreign can makes them feel confident to speak English with other people next........S
