Teach Children in a Rural Thai Village
from £1095 GBP
to £1695 GBP
Teach English and other subjects to children in a Thai Village. A fascinating cultural experience awaits you in this land of smiles! Embrace Thai culture while assisting others to perfect their English in a small community to the north of Bangkok. You can help teach English and other subjects. Children also receive Thai lessons every day and you can participate in these Thai lessons for free if you would like to learn some of the native language.
You'll be based in the small town of Muak Lek, located in Thailand’s Saraburi province, a 3 hour drive to the north of Bangkok. Here you’ll teach conversational English to a classroom of excited students in the town’s Seventh Day Adventist International School, a private organisation supported by the church. The school is non-for-profit, so all profits are channelled back into the school for its benefit.What you'll gain from this project
- An exciting, never-to-be-forgotten adventure into real Asian Thai culture.
- The enormous satisfaction of helping children and knowing that you made a difference to them
- New skills, more confidence, a greater understanding of a different culture, invaluable personal and professional development.
- An entry on your CV or Résumé that will put you head and shoulders above most others in the job market
- And best of all ... an unforgettable experience!
You’ll either live with a host family (one of whom will probably be a teacher at the school), or you’ll live in your own house, possibly sharing with other volunteers. Australia village has a swimming pool and small convenience shop.What to do next

“The school is great and I’ve been introduced to some of the kids.. it’s all new for me! And the teachers have also been very welcoming - we’ve got plenty of things to talk about. Back at the house, the family have been so helpful in getting me settled in.. from the food I eat to anything I need for the room. Apparently they had a female graduate stay with them the last time so they we’re apprehensive about a guy stopping.. so maybe they were as nervous as I was! They haven’t showed it though and have taken me in as part of the family which is brilliant. “
