Volunteer Teacher Thailand
Volunteer Teacher Thailand carries on the English education work of the Tsunami Volunteer Centre. It is a non-profit making service run by volunteer staff providing free English lessons to children and adults in Phang-Nga province. They raise the money needed to keep the service going and rely on volunteers to do the teaching. You also have the opportunity to spend time at the Home & Life centre working on building activities alongside the residents.
- The volunteer group will be running English Camps in three schools during the three weeks on project
- For an English Camp, the schools suspend their timetables and bring the whole school together for three days of intensive English activities. The volunteers form four teams. The children will be divided into four groups. Each team will run a station. The children will rotate around the stations until each group has had four one hour lessons. The lessons will be arranged between the school and VTT. The topics will be taken from the schools’ curricula.
- Most of the lesson materials will be already made, the team’s role in preparation is to study the lesson, make photocopies of worksheets and devise a game that reinforces that which has been taught. Team games, role play, memory games – whatever you can devise to make it fun.
