Teaching in Coastal Village

Tianyar, Indonesia show on map

Teach essential English skills to non-English speakers, who can use these skills to empower their lives in the local tourism industry

The program

This wonderful teaching program is set in the picturesque coastal fishing village of Tianyar in north eastern Bali. This is the true Bali – set away from the over-crowed and fast paced tourist meccas found elsewhere. Here volunteers will find peaceful villages and families far away from the tourist dollar. This teaching program supports these wonderful, but impoverished families, enabling their children to learn the skills required to better enhance their futures. Volunteers on this program will have plenty of time to fully experience all that Bali has to offer – giving a ‘behind the scenes’ look at real life in this wonderful location. As a tourism hub, those seeking employment in Bali find that English is an essential skill, one that they must speak fluently and confidently. This program supports this need – providing volunteers to work with local children and set the foundations for a better life. This project is a great way for international volunteers to learn more about the Balinese people and culture, teach those in need and spend time exploring this magical location.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide free English lessons to children in Tianyar village
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Teach creatively and create a love for learning among the children
  • Expose volunteers and locals alike to different people and cultures
How you can help

This amazing program is set in a dedicated learning center on the beautiful Balinese coast. The center provides free English classes to the children of the village. Volunteers will teach students ranging in ages from 5 – 18 years, starting at the basics and moving to writing and grammar. Volunteers are encouraged to put their own personality into the lessons, create their own lesson plans and incorporate new learning techniques and experiences for the students. Fun and creative lessons are encouraged and well received. At the center, volunteers will be supported by local staff with classes running from Monday to Thursday, giving participants the added bonus of 3-day weekends to explore the magical island of Bali! With the knowledge and confidence to partake in conversational English with foreigners, these children will have the tools for a brighter future. It is recommended that volunteers research teaching English as a second language techniques and creative ways to do so before embarking on this epic adventure! 

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Teach English to students ranging in ages from 5 – 18 years
  • Teach other basic subject matter in English
  • Play games and run activities
  • Teach students about their own lives and where they live

Typical day

Volunteers work Monday to Thursday, typically for 4 and 6 hours per day. While we ask that volunteers are flexible a typical daily schedule is likely to go something like this:

8:30am Breakfast at the Guesthouse

10:00am VOLUNTEERING DUTIES START

    Details on Arrival

    This project is available year-round and programs start every SATURDAY. Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

    Free-time activities

    Tianyar is a small, picturesque fishing village located in the northern part of Bali, far away from the typical tourist path and a paradise of tranquillity. Although this is a quiet corner of Bali, from here volunteers can use their free time to quickly and easily explore all tourist destinations by motorbike or by taxi, including the famous scuba-diving hubs of Tulamben and Amed. Our other project hub of Ubud is just 2 hours’ drive from this location.

    Within walking distance of the village projects there are some wonderful things to see and do, including walking along the pristine beaches, swimming, snorkelling! This is a truly special place to be a Love Volunteer!
