Alternative English Class Teacher

Bangkok, Thailand

Volunteer as a teacher for our village student and learn about our culture!

About the Program

If you can speak and write fluent English … then you are the right person to join our volunteer program to teach English in Thailand. The idea of our program is "fun based". The main focus is teaching vocabulary lessons by using drawing or action tools. Secondary priority lesson idea should be simple conversation. 

Such as: How many ........ ? How old are you ? What is your favorite pet ?

These should be simple question or conversation that the children will use as daily routine. We’d like to give space and flexibility to our volunteers to use alternative forms of teaching, which they themselves will find fun and educational, and which will motivate Thai children to learn and speak English. We believe that “learning by playing” will give kids a better experience and eventually a better understanding of English, rather than teaching the “traditional way”.This idea is related to the school objectives set by the Thailand government.

Our programs for volunteers will be designed individually:

If you tell us in which area(s) you would like to teach, the duration of your anticipated stay and how many hours you can dedicate to teach on a weekly basis – we will send you a proposal within 2 weeks.

We now have agreements with several schools in 4 different areas:

  • Bangkok
  • Ayutthaya / Bang Pa In
  • Khao Yai
  • Kanchanaburi

This program is not only about teaching at class, but also about cultural aspects. You will explore our culture with our youth guide. You will discover this amazing country and our youth will practice their English conversation skills from this tour, too.

Our tour destinations are for example : Bangkok Canal Tour or Old city Bike trip or Old city Walking Trip or the Zoo. 

Use your creativity when it comes to teaching! We promise you will have a great time!
