Why Come To Thailand?
Thailand has a rich history and a warm culture, it has many wonderful scenic views from waterfalls, mountains and beaches however its greatest asset is the people. Thai’s are warm-hearted, they live life with a smile and will embrace you into their culture.
There are many reasons why you may wish to volunteer from taking a career/student break, wanting to experience new cultures, the need for adventure or the urge to help , to be able to Volunteer is an unselfish act, with its reward being self satisfaction and the knowledge of actually making a difference.
The advantages of volunteering over holidaying in Thailand are that you will see the real side of the country. Away from the tourist areas you will see how Thai's live their lives, their daily routine their culture, customs and experience hidden gems of the landscape.
What will I be Doing?
Teaching Thai students English in schools which have been specially chosen to make you trip memorable
Overall, English is not well spoken by Thais. Students are no different.
English is not geography or history. It is not a body of information. But it’s taught that way. It’s a skill like swimming or riding a bike. Thai kids actually have a pretty good knowledge base about English. They just don’t know how to use it. It’s as though they’ve been taught the subject of swimming. But they just can’t swim.
Unlocking this ability doesn’t require teaching experience or training. The best volunteers we’ve seen have neither. What they do have is energy, an outgoing personality and a natural connection with people. If this is you. Then you are probably a natural.
Why Pay Excessive Sums To Volunteer?
There are too many agencies that charge too much for the privilege of volunteering in Thailand. Thailand is a popular tourist destination. But that shouldn’t be an excuse for high placement fees. Schools never charge agencies to get volunteers. They welcome them. Most provide accommodation and lunch free of charge. So why should agencies charge a lot to volunteers? The answer is: they shouldn’t.
When volunteering becomes expensive, fewer and fewer teachers end up in classrooms. And the students are the ones who end up paying. There are 13 million students here in Thailand. Most of them will never see a native English teacher. Only those who attend a bigger school in populated areas such as Bangkok, will. And Thai students as a group finish near the bottom of the rankings when children throughout Asia are tested for English proficiency. So the need is greater now than ever.
