Primary Village School Teacher

Nanyang Village, Laos show on map

Agency | Global Nomadic

You support the children of the Laos community who need educational assistance and make a difference in their lives.

The Program

The aim of this program is to help improve the children’s education and life prospects in these poorer communities of Laos. The project takes place primarily at a local primary village school where you can teach English classes or conduct extra-curricular English language activities from playing games, sports and music to handicraft making. These classes are meant to improve the English language skills of the children and develop their interests and ambitions in different fields.

You will get the chance to interact with the friendly and kind Laotian children who appreciate your help, which positively impacts the lives of the members of the community. You will gain a truly unforgettable and life-changing experience!

The Location

Laos, the country once known as the 'land of a million elephants', can offer a lot - from underground river caves, white-water rapids and jungle zip lines for the thrill seekers, to beautiful forests for the trekkers and nature lovers and wonderful cuisine for the foodies. It is a country that has retained its authenticity and traditions and where Buddhism plays a significant role in the language, art, literature and performing arts. Nanyang Village (Ban Na Yang), where the project takes place, is located 26 km outside of Vientiane and will give you a taste of the authentic rural Laos.

Typical day

From Monday to Friday you will be preparing and evaluating lessons and activities as well as teach English classes. You will teach basic English, grammar, vocabulary, conversation, games, songs, sports and music. You can create fun and educational real-life situations in which the children can use English.

The schedule can also be in reverse in which case you will be teaching in the morning and preparing your lessons in the afternoon.

On Friday there will be a meeting to evaluate the program of the week.

Please note that activities and schedules can change at any time based on the needs of the program, local conditions and weather conditions
