The Cambodian government is not able to provide access to education for all people in Cambodia. Everybody, from adults to young children, is eager to develop their English language skills as education is the way out of poverty. Therefore many of the projects we work with are urgently searching for volunteers as they need teachers who can help out with specific skills like English and computer literacy. Sometimes other skills (like mathematics, arts etc.) are required. Volunteers teach English at many levels, according to their skills. In some schools volunteers prepare and correct tests and exams. As to be expected, the longer you stay the more responsibilities you receive. The volunteers are required to the daily lessons the day/evening before the class session. Teaching English in Cambodia gives volunteers the unique opportunity to implement their own ideas and teaching methods in a way that will create new opportunities for the youth of Cambodia. The volunteer should be able to adapt quickly to social and cultural change and have a genuine interest in the Cambodian country and culture. However, the best qualifications are enthusiasm, initiative and willingness to work. Volunteers teaching English do not have to be native English-speakers. All volunteers with a good knowledge of English and the desire to share their knowledge with the Cambodian people are welcome. Volunteers do not need to be qualified or experienced in teaching.

Typical day

A typical day starts at 8 am and ends around 5 pm including the following tasks:

  • assistant and lead one of the four classes while Khmer/English study
  • prepare meals and cleaning up
  • sing and play with the kids
  • learn and practice memory verses, the English alphabet, songs, poems

Free-time activities

Every volunteers will get the weekend off. There are many places volunteers can visit at the weekend including the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, Wat Phnom, National Museum, Killing Field... Volunteers can also travel by bus to visit many provinces at weekend or during national holiday such as to Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat, the famous historical place or Sihahouk Vill and Kampot to see beaches. Phnom Penh is a very international city, you will find a lot of western bars, supermarkets offer western articels, and especially the riverside is the spot for diplomats, travellers and international ngo-workers. But of course, you will also find the Cambodian Culture everywhere in the city. Walk around the different markets, try the food of the food stalls at the street or just walk around the streets, there is really always something to explore. Phnom Penh is a good base for trips through the country as it is very central.
