This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the rich cultural diversity of Cambodia, whilst also teaching English to students in Phnom Penh.
The aim of this project is to raise funds to support a local Cambodian NGO working towards improving the situation for the rural poor in Cambodia. The students who wish to learn English pay a small affordable fee which is then channelled to the NGO.
A typical day would be teaching for up to 5 hours per day, as well as preparing classes. As a volunteer you can take 1 hour classes each day; Monday - Friday for 10 weeks. You can also take one-to-one classes.
All of the students have a basic understanding of the English language but lack the practice in speaking and listening with foreigners. The students are typically aged 13-40 and are usually already in school or university education.
In your spare time from your teaching activities, you can also help out at orphanages which is worthwhile and rewarding.
