Hi, my name is Erwin. I graduated with a master degree in Education at Semarang State University Indonesia. I live in the world's city of Batik, Pekalongan. It is located in Central Java, and is a hub for Indonesian culture. About 1 hour from Semarang airport (the capital city of central Java), it is in the ideal location to get to and travel from.
I am a founder of an organization, which aims to train the local communities and rural villages not only in language, but also Computer - Preserving our cultural heritage whilst improving education.
I normally stay with either my brother, parents or in my own home, which is where you would stay if you come and help us here.
I invite you to teach and motivate the students and communities about other cultures, whilst learning some of our own. The students here like to learn other languages, especially English, and we need inspirational characters to teach them not only the language, but also that they need to work hard throughout their education, and achieve great things.
You have the chance to be involved in many cultural activities; Batik class in the Batik Museum near here. You can learn how to create Batik in the home of this beautiful art style. Batik cultural heritage was officially recognized by UNESCO. You can learn more about types of coffee such as Arabica, Canephora, Excelsa, and civet coffee from farmers in a coffee plantation located in Tombo Village. Tombo coffee is a small, isolated coffee shop in the nearby mountains, the owner of which used to wake up at 5AM and go to sleep at 2AM, just so he could sell his coffee here, but then he decided it was much better if the coffee was tasted where it came from - in Tombo. You can learn Gamelan, the authentic Javanese style of music and, if you feel inclined, the traditional dancing that accompanies it.
For your downtime, there is an abundance of cultural attractions nearby that you can visit; Pagilaran Tea plantation, Tombo coffee plantation, Beach, Batik Museum, Borobudur temple (the biggest temple in Indonesia), Prambanan temple, Dieng Plateau, a beautiful waterfall, traditional arts, and many many more.
Please get in touch if you would like to inspire, teach and motivate the local children, exchange cultures, and visit some truly incredible destinations along the way. We look forward to welcoming you into our home.

Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje
while living here, I will accompany you to see the real Java. Living with a Javanese family you will be welcomed into the family, eat our traditional food, (western food is also available, should you prefer) listen to our music, (gamelan) and adopt our way of life as much as is comfortable for you.
You will be involved in an invaluable cultural exchange, and take away many heart felt memories, and leave behind inspired children and a taste of your culture.
You will also witness some of the most breath taking terraced scenery in the Java in visiting the surrounding mountains. The Dieng Plateau is a must see, with its stunning 2 or 3 hour drive to get there, and then the sulpherous coloured lake, volcanic crater, various temples and stunning terraced scenery.
Proyectos con niños
En este proyecto podría haber niños. Para obtener más información, consulta nuestras directrices y consejos aquí.
You will be required to teach English to students and time to relax and visit the beach, and other nearby attractions during the week. You will visit some tourist destination in Central Java on the weekends.
The level of English does not require previous teaching experience, or any teaching qualifications, just that you can be patient, and speak clearly and slowly to help the children.
Besides from teaching English in the classroom, you may be required to give presentations in front of the local schools with a PowerPoint on a cultural exchange. This helps to motivate and inspire the children, so that they might be driven to achieve great things.
