Education


The ability to speak English is, as in many other countries, becoming increasingly important in Thailand. When a Thai can speak English it increases his or her job prospects significantly, still the level of English of most Thai is quite low. By teaching English you can help them become more familiar with the English language.

Work

Your work consists of preparing and teaching English at primary or secondary school. If you have a preference for type of school please indicate this.

Sometimes you will teach along with a Thai, English-speaking teacher, sometimes you will prepare and give a lesson on your own. This is done in consultation with the teachers on site.

Experience

There is no experience required for our education projects. Of course you have to have a good level of English. The minimum age for participation in an educational project is 18 years.

What is expected from you?

Voluntary does not mean optional. When you have registered and are placed in a project we expect your cooperation and 100% commitment. You need to be flexible. The circumstances are different than in your country, you must therefore be able to adapt easily to the local situation and culture.

The minimum period of participation in our educational projects is 3-4 weeks.

Location and free time

World Experience cooperates with several schools in Thailand. The schools are located in North and Central Thailand. If you have a preference please indicate this to us. We will take it  into account as much as possible.

Usually you work 5 days a week, from Monday to Friday. On the weekends you are free and you have time to explore the area. You can spend time with other volunteers or your host family (if applicable).

Accommodation and meals

Accommodation will be arranged for you. The type of accommodation depends on the school where you are placed. This can be a volunteer house, a guesthouse or host family. Sometimes a room is shared with another volunteer, sometimes you have a private room. Most types of accommodation are pretty basic.

Three meals a day are included. For snacks and drinks you have to take care yourself. If you’re a vegetarian or are allergic to certain food please indicate this to us so we can take it into account.
