I had the pleasure of living with a family outside of Bangkok for one month. I lived with grandmother, mom, dad, two boys (8 and 14) and three dogs. My focus was on preparing the 14 year old for his yearlong homestay in the U.S. the following year. I taught American History and Lifestyle lessons and worked on his conversational English.
I choose to participate in this program to help decide if I wanted to live and teach English in Thailand. My experience was so profound and inspiring; I am already planning my return.
I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to fully immerse yourself in another culture. Whether you are in high school, recently graduated, or a 30-year-old looking to make a life change like me, take the plunge and expand your comfort zone.
