Volunteer Opportunities in Thailand

English teaching certification courses in Thailand or TEFL course Thailand opens the scope of voluntary teaching projects in Thailand at various schools ranging from nurseries, primary schools, secondary schools, high schools, etc. TEFL qualified volunteer teachers can expectto teach children as young as 3 years old in nurseries while in secondary schools, students up to 22 years of age are being taught. Most volunteers work in primary schools where children are of the age from 4 years to about 11 years. Inevitably class sizes are big, some with up to 50 students, although these can be divided between two volunteers. Volunteers are expected to teach for about 4 hours per day depending upon placements.

One good thing about the TEFL courses and teaching English in Thailand is that if you are a qualified teacher with TESOL, then in whichever school you may work in, you would be very much needed. The volunteer teachers generally teach grammar and structure of English language.

ESL or EFL certified teachers with no prior work experience can benefit fromvoluntary teaching initially as they can get some good practical exposure by teaching in various schools voluntarily. Thailand has a well-deserved reputation of the country where tourists from all over the world may throng in and get some voluntary teaching experience in numerous schools. Tourists who want to volunteer during gap year, career break or as a part of an extended holiday have a great role to play as volunteer teachers and their work is highly appreciated. Sometimes, they are given free accommodation and food allowances as a token of recognition for their work catered. Generally, they work free of cost and help poor children study English language and others.

TESOL qualified teachers who are willing to do voluntary teaching are expected to be in the Thai schools between 8:30am - 3:30pm. One should have approximately 18 hours of classes a week. Singing the national anthem and respecting the national flag are important. You should encourage the students to develop knowledge about every subjects according to their liking, teach them about foreign culture or discuss about various sports and raise their interest level to interact with you and take joy in the voluntary classes.

Teaching English as a Foreign Language courses (TEFL) or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) prove beneficial to Thai students to learn English through primary and secondary school, but in rural areas with few or no foreigners, students seldom get any chance to practice the language. Unfortunately for rural Thai students, having poor English skills means reduced education and job opportunities in the future. By placing TESL qualified volunteers in rural schools, can really help redress the imbalance and situation, where native or near-native English speakers can really help Thai students with their listening and speaking skills. Not only that, but having a foreign volunteer at their school is a very fun and exciting prospect for Thai students who will have an opportunity to learn from you about foreign people and culture!

An affordable, memorable, informative, fantastic experience. The course manager went above and beyond to help us settle into Thailand, and went even further to help us find work. In regards to the instructor... I don't imagine you could find anyone better. She was personable, fun, informative, and more. She pushes you to be your best!

I have many good experience with the course. For example, I met many people have the same passion with me and the trainer is very awesome. I have a chance to practice with the students from kindergarten to high school. After that I receive many feedbacks from my classmates and the trainer who helped me a lot to improve my confidence. I really appreciate it.
