Nepal voluntary scheme

With ESLstarter, I found a great placement in Nepal, not far from the capital, Kathmandu. I began by spending 2, 3 days in Thamel, the buzzing centre of the capital to become acclimatised with the culture and way of life in Nepal. I was taken on tours of the temples, given some basic language lessons, and stayed in a guest house. It was the ideal beginning.
I then was placed into a rural school some miles away. The whole placement was coordinated between ESLstarter and a coordinator in Nepal who helped me step by step. The school was extremely friendly, and also provided accommodation. The family ran the school and were excellent hosts, I fully enjoyed being part of their family and way of life during the Month. The teaching was also enjoyable, and the children a joy to work with. At the beginning I had a little surprise as I did not follow any particular syllabus, and as such had to decide on the lessons myself. However the TEFL training online I had completed equipped me to deal with this.
In the last week, I took excursions to Chitwan National Park and Pokhara, which was organised by the Nepali coordinator. These are must-see destinations.
ESLstarter helped sort the placement out, and my advisor was Claire, who was particularly helpful and answered any queries promptly and in full.
