El inglés es una habilidad muy importante y solicitada en Tailandia; cualquier niño que pueda aprenderlo de manera eficiente tendrá muchas más oportunidades disponibles que de otra manera no habría tenido. A través de este programa de voluntariado, puedes ayudar a que los niños obtengan exactamente eso, brindarles la posibilidad de terminar sus estudios y obtener nuevas herramientas para desarrollarse mejor en su día a día. Cada voluntario juega un papel clave en el cuidado y la enseñanza de los niños en el programa. Esta experiencia de voluntariado es particularmente valiosa porque también le permite descubrir y comprender de primera mano la cultura tailandesa, como cualquier otro tailandés. 

  • En el programa, hay alrededor de cien niños de 3 a 5 años. 

El rol que puede desempeñar como voluntario depende de la escuela en particular que elija y sus intereses: se le puede asignar un maestro de tailandés para que vaya a clases con él y lo apoye en el desarrollo de clases y lecciones, o  si tiene las habilidades para planificar sus propias lecciones y confianza ; es libre de dirigir una clase por su cuenta. Al planificar, sugerimos que los voluntarios intenten cubrir las cuatro habilidades principales en inglés (hablar, escuchar, leer y escribir) dentro de un período de una hora de una clase.

Algunos temas que podrías cubrir en tus primeras clases de inglés son animales, comida, colores, números, tiempo, días de la semana, meses del año, deportes, lugares de la ciudad, países, cosas del hogar y música. También te sugerimos que utilices algunas actividades como memoria, búsqueda de palabras, crucigramas, parodias, diálogos, bingo, giro de botella (conversación y vocabulario, sin besos), dice Simon, y dictado.

En estas escuelas se utilizan libros de texto y cuadernos de ejercicios en las clases de inglés, aunque hay que tener en cuenta que determinados libros están por encima de las capacidades de los alumnos que lo utilizan. Nos gusta que los voluntarios usen los libros de texto y los cuadernos de trabajo tanto como sea posible  , ya que los niños continuarán usándolos , pero los voluntarios también son bienvenidos para usar recursos creativos en el desarrollo de actividades y lecciones.

Typical day

Un día escolar habitual se ve así:

  • 8:00 mañana asamblea y anuncios
  • 8:30 comienzan las clases
  • 11:10 hora del almuerzo
  • 12:10 se lleva a cabo el montaje y continúan las clases
  • 16:20 termina el día escolar

También les daremos a los voluntarios un horario oficial a seguir cuando comiencen a ofrecerse como voluntarios.

Free-time activities

You will be volunteering in the beautiful, northern Thai city of Chiang Mai. A complete contrast to Thailand's capital Bangkok, Chiang Mai is a smaller city with a huge connection to the environment, as it provides direct access to the nearby beautiful forest mountains that are a hotspot for adventurers and lovers of nature alike. In addition to that, Chiang Mai also has very intriguing traditionally Thai sites such as its well-known open air markets, its historic center filled with centuries old temples, or the Buddhist temples near the city. 

In addition to that, Chiang Mai could offer you excursions and trekking on mountains and rice fields, beautiful handicrafts at its markets, night safaris, a bustling nightlife you can enjoy with other volunteers at the Zoe Yellow area, among other things.

During your stay, you could also visit some of the other beautiful places in Thailand, such as its beaches or historical sites like Ayutthaya.
