Expérience inoubliable

English Translation provided by Go Overseas

I stayed for a month in Vietnam with the project of teaching French in Vietnamese primary schools. This experience was beyond my expectations: wonderful meetings with volunteers from all over the world (which allows an opening on different cultures and a total immersion in Vietnamese culture.
At the slightest difficulty the staff is at your disposal and makes every effort to help you.
Volunteering has been very rewarding. The children were very happy that I came to help them, smile and cuddle at will! :). In parallel with this project, I traveled extensively in the North of Vietnam: breathtaking landscapes and unforgettable encounters were waiting for you.
I was very happy to participate in this project. If we had to redo it ? I would do it again without hesitation!

Original French Review

Je suis restée un mois au Vietnam avec pour projet l’enseignement du français dans les écoles primaires vietnamiennes. Cette expérience a été au dessus de mes attentes : des rencontres formidables avec des bénévoles venues du monde entier ( qui permet une ouverture sur les différentes cultures et une immersion totale dans la culture vietnamienne.
A la moindre difficulté le staff est à votre écoute et met tout en œuvre pour vous aider.
Le volontariat a été très enrichissant. Les enfants étaient très heureux que je viennent les aidés, sourire et câlins à volonté ! :). En parallèle de ce projet j’ai énormément voyager dans le nord du Vietnam : des paysages à couper le souffle et des rencontres inoubliables étaient au rendez-vous.
J’ai été très heureuse de participer à ce projet. Si c’était à refaire ? Je le referais sans hésiter !

Teaching English in Pascal International School

The collaboration with the teachers in the school was amazing. We received the lessons in advance in order to have enough time to prepare the activities and some games (the students always want to play some games, is the funniest part). The students were amaizing, very kind and they are always willing to learn English. In some classes the English level was not such good, so the Vietnamise teacher helped us to explain the lessons. Normally the children participated a lot during the lessons but if not, you have to find different ways to motivate them.
All Pascal School stuff wanted that you feel there like at home, and they achieved it.

This was my first experience as a volunteer and I will repeat for sure.

A life changing experience

I worked as an international volunteer in the community based language development program at a local NGO for 12 months. At the same time, I joined to run a volunteer club for national volunteers focusing on intercultural learning.

When I started this program I had no experience in teaching. Most of my learners were university students with a satisfactory level of English. So I focused mainly on pronunciation and improving their vocabulary. The time with my students was an awesome fun experience.

I made a lot of friends with Vietnamese people and the other international volunteers. In my opinion, volunteering gives you a great opportunity to learn much about a country, its language and its people.

What would you improve about this program?
A twelve months volunteering program isn't as trouble free as it superficially looks.

In general, the sending organizations should reflect on a few points before agreeing to a cooperation contract. What benefit will my partner have of the volunteers? Is it about the money, about the work force, about intercultural exchange, the gate to the world, about recognition?

In case they really need a partner, are you able to offer them a service according to their needs? Can you offer development cooperation and the needed
