In northern areas of Thailand, local people have very limited access to formal education. There is a real need for volunteers to assist in teaching not only young children, but also adults from surrounding hill tribes and local villages. The focus is on providing assistance to teaching English initiatives in the local villages and hill tribes.
As a volunteer English teacher, you’ll assist local teachers and other volunteers in lessons for students of all ages. You can also expect to teach some classes on your own. Time is set aside each day for you to prepare your lessons.
This project is well suited to aspiring teachers as well as volunteers who are interested in teaching English to people who value the language, and would not otherwise have the chance to learn it.
As volunteers work with the support of IVHQ’s local team and placement staff, you don’t need to be a qualified teacher. However, we encourage volunteers to come prepared by completing some relevant training, like a teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) course.
