Teach English on Koh Phangan
What will I be doing?
Teach English to primary school children aged from 4 to12 years old on the stunning and fun tropical island of Koh Phangan, off the South East coast of Thailand.
Volunteers on Koh Phangan focus on improving speaking and listening skills and building the children's confidence to communicate in English. Volunteers design lessons which are fun and include lots of interaction. Lessons may vary depending on age and ability but may include:
Interactive learning games
Arts and crafts
Listening or conversation practice
Games - the children love karaoke!
A normal week will involve around 2 hours of English lessons per day from Monday to Friday. The school day starts at 8.30am and finishes at 3.30pm. You will teach primary school children aged 4 – 12 years old. You may teach on your own or with another volunteer.
How will I make a difference?
By volunteering to teach English at primary schools in Thailand you can help the children develop their confidence by inspiring them to improve their English skills.
In Thailand, English is important as it's the number one language in tourism. Koh Phangan has rapidly developed over the past few years and many of the jobs on the island relate to tourism so English ability is particularly important in this location. A volunteer English teacher is really valuable since they can help to improve the speaking and listening skills for the students on the tropical island.
