Teaching in Lovina will give you a real taste of the Balinese culture, being surrounded by local people and the stunning location of Lovina will not only enhance your teaching skills but you will feel "Mother Bali's"  presence heightening your inner soul to feel more present and connected to nature. Through our transformational English curriculum which is digitally delivered, we aim to provide a fun learning environment and attempt to make the children enthusiastic about learning English.

Your role is to connect with the children and encourage them to be enthused about learning, sharing your experience in the English language by using our multi-sensory curriculum, you may well have sown the seeds of a lifelong learning habit.
