The secondary schools are located in larger communities, towns or cities. These schools for 12-19 year olds are really big with 1000 - 4000 students. Almost all of these schools are co-education. Each school has a foreign language department. English is the main language offered but some of these schools also offer French, German, Italian languages. 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 English teaching volunteers in secondary schools can also teach other languages in addition to English depending upon the school. There can be about 10 teachers in the foreign language department; however, only 1-2 teachers may speak good English. Others just translate the stories, and teach grammar/structural English. Therefore, there is a lack of conversational English. Volunteers will work for 4-5 hours a day from Monday to Friday.
Program Fee Does Not Cover
Though no teaching experience or skill is needed, volunteers joining English-teaching projects should have a mastery of the English language as well as speak properly. Volunteers are expected to be flexible and patient as well as possess a passion and love for children.
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.
