As well as kindergarten teaching, we also have other teaching options if you wanted to combine projects to get the most out of your experience. Here are the English teaching projects you can get involved with…

Kindergarten Teaching
Volunteer at one of our many kindergarten schools, assisting the local teacher and teaching English. This project helps children from the villages improve their English language and conversational skills. You will mostly be teaching English but could be asked to help teach drama, music or other foreign languages. You will assist local staff by creating teaching plans for each day. All the schools are well managed and supervised by officers from government and private institutions.

Village Kids
English education quite expensive in Sri Lanka and the majority of the children in villages are not able to attend the private tuition classes they need to improve their English. This project teaches English to these village children after school hours. The lessons will take place either at a community centre or at the home of a parent who can offer space to conduct the lessons. This project is only for 2 to 3 hours in the afternoon, so we suggest that you combine this with another project, which takes place in the morning.

Special Needs School
You can also help by spending some time at the special needs school, where you can care for and help students with various health conditions. Your affection, attention and care encourage the children to increase their confidence and to put a smile on their faces. Your role will be to support the teachers and staff in caring for the children, teaching and other activities, as well as assisting them to live an independent life.

Teaching English to Adults
Learning English can greatly help with job prospects, particularly within the tourist industry.  By teaching these adults vital English language skills, you can increase their confidence and assist in better chances for them to earn a higher living. The formal teaching of English in schools has not been that successful in Sri Lanka, so your help is very much appreciated by the adults who want to gain English skills to benefit their job prospects.

Freizeitaktivitäten

Here are a few things you can do in Sri Lanka!

Royal Botanical Gardens
The Botanic Gardens are situated around 5. km to the West of Kandy. Once being only for the Kandyan royalty, they are now open to the public to wander around at their leisure. There’s 60 hectares of beautiful garden to explore, where you will see a huge Javan fig tree, pretty orchids and even monkeys!

Knuckles mountain range
This stunning mountain range is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and hosts many walking trails. You will find small villages, beautiful waterfalls, numerous native wildlife and rice fields. This is the perfect place for people who love the outdoors and adventurous hiking trails.

Sigiriya (Lion Rock)
Another UNESCO World Heritage site, this ancient rock is situated around 91km North from Kandy and is very popular with tourists, who can climb up to the top for some seriously stunning views. Along the way you will see antient rock carvings and paintings on the walls of this sacred rock. It will take roughly just over an hour to climb up.

Yala National Park
Located on the South coast of Sri Lanka, this stunning park hosts one of the highest leopard densities in the world. Not only that, you can also spot elephants, monkeys, birds, buffalo and more. There are numerous tours in Yala, from day tours to over several days of safari.

Adam’s Peak
Around 91km South of Kandy you can climb to the top of this sacred sight, just as the locals do for pilgrimage. It’s a bit of a trek up in the dark but totally worth it to see the sun coming up over the clouds, mountains and lush forest. You will be greeted by stunning views to reward your efforts!

Hortons Plains National Park
You can trek through this beautiful national park to ‘World’s End’, a 9.5km round loop trail, taking around 3 hours. This is a pretty easy walk, but you will be greeted with amazing views out over the countryside and above the clouds! It’s best to visit here early (before 10am) as the clouds can roll in after that and block the incredible views.

Udawatta Kele Reserve
Situated near the Kandy lake, this nature reserve is complete with monkeys and birds- fantastic for wildlife and nature lovers. Here you will find wooded forests, over 400 species of plants and 70 bird species. You can trek through the forest for a relaxing break away from the city.

Tea Plantations
Kandy and Nuwara Eliya are both popular places to visit a tea plantation, for a refreshing taste of some of Sri Lanka’s best fresh tea! Not only do they produce great tea, the landscape is stunningly green, with endless hills rolling off into the distance.
