English is in high demand in Thailand. The primary schools are located in small communities to provide education to the children between 5-12 years from Grade 1-6. The primary level education in Thailand is free and compulsory. The class size ranges from 10 - 40 depending upon the size of the community and also upon the quality of the school. The presence of native English speaking volunteers will create conducive environment for the children to learn and speak in English. Volunteers/travelers can benefit by supplying these students with much-needed expertise in conversational English as well as provide a solid foundation to meet their needs, nurture their interests and ultimately make them attractive in Thailand's growing job market.
The Thailand volunteers will teach English to the students of primary and lower secondary schools for five days a week, Monday to Friday. Apart from this, English teaching volunteers will also encourage the students to take part in extra curricular activities and organize sportive games. Volunteers 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.
Program Fee Does Not Cover
Prior teaching experience would be an advantage. However, volunteers without such experiences are also welcome. You may bring any photos (family, friends, and home-town), videos, postcards, magazines from home which will be useful for your work and conversation.
Rustic Volunteer Travel manages room/food for volunteers. Volunteers live with the host family or in hostel and we manage a separate, simple, clean and modest room as well as local meals three times a day. Volunteer will also have an access to our office in Thailand and mobile number of our coordinators. Our staffs also visit volunteers in each 2-4 week interval as a part of the program. Details covering living accommodations provided prior to arrival.
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.
