Teaching English in Rural Schools in Philippines
In the Philippines there is a strong national emphasis on the importance of being able to speak, read and write English as all good jobs require proficiency in English. Learning English is incredibly important and getting off to a good start in elementary school is critical. Unfortunately, many rural elementary schools are overcrowded and lack sufficient textbooks and teaching material. Often, the only classroom equipment available is a blackboard. Children are often squeezed into small classrooms, and most schools do not have a library. As a volunteer you will help these children make a great start with their English speaking.
Teaching English in Peru
Hablas Ingles? (Do you speak English?) There are few more valuable skills in this increasingly globalised world than to be able to connect and communicate with visitors to your region. With your help, more and more residents of Cusco will be able to access the opportunities and advantages that speaking English brings. At our Teaching English placements, volunteers assist the full time teacher with speaking, listening, writing, reading, grammar, and vocabulary lessons. Volunteers may also be asked to help with specific learners in terms of their pronunciation and for one-on-one tutoring. It's also a great way to improve your Espanol and enable both you and your students to share stories, jokes and life histories.

Literacy in Rwanda

Koh Samui - Teaching in Thailand
Koh Samui is definitely an island of two halves. There's the side tourists see as it's one of Thailand's leading tourist resort destinations attracting over a million visitors each year. Step away from the tourist areas, and you'll see a very different side of Samui, a side that struggles each day, that lives hand to mouth, a side that desperately needs help. Our focus on Koh Samui is with the next generation.
Koh Samui TEFL in Thailand
Earn an international teaching qualification while sunning it on tropical Samui. Our program mixes traditional training with in class practical experience in a local school. This both provides an opportunity for you to gain real experience and lets you give back to the community you will be part. Because the local school is so underfunded, without volunteers like you the local kids simply would not receive the eduction that will help them get ahead in life. Please note, prices for this project are different from others. See more details for information.
Chiang Rai Hill Tribes - Teaching in Thailand
Most hill tribes have access to schools that have been set up to offer a basic education for the children. Combined with the usual curriculum these kids learn about cottage industries that they may be able to earn an income from once they leave school at 12 years old. However for any child who excels in English they have an opportunity to take part in a local initiative to become local tour guides and break the cycle of poverty through education with help from volunteer teachers like you.
