Project Review

For many centuries, wats or Buddhist temples have served as educational institutions for young citizens of Thailand. All the temples receive donation which is used for the maintenance of temples and its surroundings. In addition to this, some temples support social welfare activities for the benefit of the local communities. One of these includes running a school within the temple complex. In collaboration with local Thailand partners, Rustic Travel Volunteers provide volunteers/travelers who have a passion for teaching but also is very interested in Thai society behind the walls of temple school. The volunteers working in temple schools get an opportunity to gain the experience in teaching and also understand Thai culture/Buddhist religion deeply rooted in Thai society.

Major Responsibilities

Volunteers mostly work as English teachers in primary and secondary school run by Buddhist temples. You will teach English to the local students (not monks) of primary and lower secondary schools for five days a week, Monday to Friday. You will teach practical conversational English by telling stories, playing games, performing plays. Volunteers will also teach specific vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. A supervisor at each school will be assigned to help develop teaching lessons. Apart from this, you will also encourage the students to take part in extra curricular activities and organize sportive games.

Any Missing Important Information

VISA:Though volunteers can acquire a Visa upon arrival in Bangkok , we strongly suggest volunteers acquire a tourist Visa in their home country before departing for Thailand . This saves you significant time and the hassle of filling forms and waiting in long lines once you've arrived in Bangkok . The visa is your entry permit into any foreign country, you risk not begin allowed access by arriving without it. There are no volunteer visas, so volunteers should apply for a tourist visa.
