Teaching English

Engage with the local village children by teaching English classes at local primary schools in ancient Laos!

Teach English to these bright-eyed children in an informal way through engaging activities and games, feel free to get creative!

Aside from teaching your students a new  language that can impact their future, you will also get to interact with the kids, who might end up teaching you something back!

This teaching program may take place at a variety of schools, although our primary teaching placement is a local public school in Luang Prabang where you get to teach English to children aged between 10 to 25 years old and, the classrooms are roughly 15 – 20 students per class with one teacher.

Many schools are open to new concepts and approaches to teaching. This means that you may be able to share your new ideas and teaching strategies that might complement teaching styles in Laos.

You may come up with a creative lesson plan yet in line with the syllabus to help the student improve their English as well as their general knowledge. You can use different tactics such as bringing up various topics and asking the kids to get involved in discussions to share their ideas related to the topic you select. That way you share a broader knowledge with the local children.

You will be teaching for around 3 – 4 hours per day and will have additional time to create your lesson plans, following the stipulated English Curriculum.

This is a hugely rewarding project and the students are eager to learn as much as they can from you and have a bit of fun in the process!

Kindergarten Project

Help out at local kindergartens by teaching English and organizing fun activities for the children.

You’ll be working in one of the two kindergartens we help by teaching basic English to the children, organizing activities, and assisting the local staff. This is a great place to learn more about local Laos culture and at the same time give something back to the local community.

The project helps provide quality English language classes to young children. Without volunteers at the kindergarten, it would be difficult for these children to obtain quality English language lessons in this area.

In this project, you will get to feed, play with the children, organize activities, and at times, help the staff with cleaning chores. You are playing a great role in this program as you work with the children who are very young and not exposed to the elders much.

Your kindness and gentleness towards the kids will make it easier for them to adopt and feel confident in communicating with the elders. They are shy and playful at the same time which will be challenging for you in the beginning but we are sure it will be a lovely experience working with the kids who adore you and give you unforgettable memories in your life!

Construction & Renovation

Get your hands dirty by constructing and renovating temples, schools, and more in one of the ancient locations in Laos.

A program designed for those who don’t mind getting a bit sweaty and their hands dirty!

You’ll spend your time working in construction and renovation wherever it’s needed at the time. Most of the community places and the buildings in this ancient city require a great deal of improvement allowing you to play a special role in the community.

To improve the hygiene in local schools and kindergartens, you will support the team with rebuilding and renovating the bathrooms in the schools and kindergartens. You will directly help the community by making it a pleasant and healthy environment for the kids to study.

This program improves especially the infrastructure in the local community, by renovating and rebuilding. You will be asked to involve in different types of renovation options ranging from painting and renovating school and temple walls, and repairing furniture such as chairs and tables to improve the roads to the local schools, kindergartens, and community places, which will be available at the time of your arrival.

It is fun to work with locals to achieve a common goal and you will learn a lot of things about Laotians and their hard work contributing to keeping the community and the environment clean with your support of course!
