Duration 42 Days
Live in a beautiful beach resort on the tropical island of Koh Phangan and teach English. The best spot in the world for a school!

Volunteer role: What will I be doing?

Volunteers live and work on the beautiful island of Koh Phangan, teaching at government schools for children aged 4-12. The students are taught English by Thai teachers in a traditional style, with more emphasis on reading and writing than on speaking and listening and so conversation skills tend to be weak. Your lessons will help the children to develop their language skills; including learning the alphabet, sets of vocabulary, basic verbs and tenses and other simple structures.

The emphasis of the lessons is to get the students speaking. The lessons should be as fun and engaging as possible, inspiring the children to love learning English!

Lessons will vary depending on age and ability but may include:

  • Interactive learning games
  • Arts and crafts
  • Listening or conversation practice
  • Games and songs – the children love karaoke!

To help you prepare for these lessons and get to know your local area, during your first few days on the island you will have:

  • A day trip to discover some of the island of Koh Phangan
  • An introduction to Thai language and culture
  • An overview of your teaching placement

Teaching experience is not a requirement, we simply ask that volunteers are enthusiastic and imaginative and willing to learn as you teach. You can choose to do a TEFL Course before you go which you may find helpful for gathering resources and building your own confidence in teaching English.
