Teaching in Asia
You can impact the lives of numerous children by volunteering to teach in Asia. You don’t have to be a teacher to volunteer abroad on our teaching projects. There is no need to have a TEFL or TESOL qualification to gain international teaching experience. You don’t even need to speak the local language where you are volunteering. The teaching program is open to all volunteers whether you are on a gap year, at university or wanting a career break.
You will find a warm welcome awaits you from our students in Asia. Whether you are interested in teaching English, teaching French, or basic computer skills as a volunteer IT instructor, a variety of opportunities are available in urban, semi-rural and rural settings within Cambodia, China, Fiji, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam. Volunteers have the opportunity to teach students in primary and secondary schools, and often work alongside local teachers as collaborative counterparts.
Teach in Asia - What Is It Like?
You will find that schools in Asia encompass a wide range of resources. Some are well equipped with educational tools, while others are understaffed and poorly resourced. Class sizes can be large, with up to fifty students in one classroom. Regardless of the teaching environment and resources available, you may find that the greatest tool and bridge for effective learning is yourself. The students will want to find out about you, the country you come from, and your interests, topics that can be incorporated into many teaching lessons.
Whatever skills and talents you have, teaching in Asia schools offers a rewarding combination of the new, exciting, and life-changing, as well as the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.
