Hey, come and teach English as a volunteer

YOU have an amazing skill that could change the lives of poor children on the tsunami coast of southern Thailand - you can speak English.
Thai children have to learn English to a good level before they are accepted for university. Unfortunately, although Thai teachers do a good job of teaching them written English, almost none of them ever comes into contact with native English speakers. This means they have no clear idea about pronunciation. However bright the child, if the school is too poor to employ a native English speaker, the lack of
higher education can mean a life without chances or choices.
Volunteer Teacher Thailand specifically addresses this problem - and you are the key to success of its strategy of putting English speakers into poor schools.
At the same time, we firmly believe in you having a good volunteer experience. We want the work to be satisfying for you and the whole experience to be enjoyable and life-enhancing.
Why not join us for an experience of a lifetime ... both yours and the lives of the children you help.
