Build a community together, speak English and get travel experience in Ta Van, Sapa. Teach English to children from 4-11 year old, youngs and workers in Ta Van.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Known as virtual town in mist, Sapa has always had a special allure travelers from everywhere by fresh air, beautiful scenery and glamor as a picture. Ta Van village is inhabited by ethnic minority people, from the center of Sapa town about 7km. By working there volunteers will experience the wonderful landscapes among the rise cultivations, the amazing typical food from the ethnic minorities and, last but not least, will have the possibility to get in touch with those people's reality. Indeed just a few people know that behind the superficial glitz of Sa Pa are also hundreds of children which do not have food and clothing, do not go to schools.
CVTD Vietnam relies on volunteers to support and sustain the local population to improve their speaking english skills. Along with this, we aim to make sure our volunteers get as much out of the experience as the people and communities they help.
- Write/prepare the lesson plans for every week/month including teaching aids (materials), games, and activities…
- Teach the lessons.
- Collaborate with teaching assistant to manage the class.
- Give feedback and recommendation to management regarding students’ performance
