You will be teaching English in a school for secondary aged students. The school is located in the beautiful Khon San district. Khon San is nestled between several large, forested hills that make for stunning views.
Khon San is rural with a strong sense of community. The area is largely made up of farming families. It is located in the north of the Chaiyaphum province in central north-eastern Thailand. This region is also known as Isaan and has its own unique culture, language and identity within the country. It has strong influences from neighbouring countries and the language is closer to Laos than Bangkok Thai.
You will be teaching English to secondary school students with your main focus being to improve their conversational English. You will work with a variety of ages and class sizes are usually around 30 students. You will follow a curriculum and use your creativity to plan engaging lessons for your students.
Volunteers often get involved in extracurricular activities at the school or support local students with extra tutoring. You will also have a generous holiday period, both to explore the country and also to become immersed in Thai life in other ways.
This is a new and exciting project so there will be plenty of scope to try out new ideas and be creative in your teaching methods.
We will provide more details about your specific project during training in July.
