TRAVAIL

his program consists of working with students at various schools teaching English. We have strong relationships with several primary and secondary schools and the age of students may be anywhere between 4 and 21. The schools accept a non-formal approach to teaching. This means that we will not have to conform to the local Thai teaching methods or style and you will be free to choose your own way of teaching and may bring new ideas into class. Our teaching program serves a dual purpose: of course, it is meant to help children in rural Thailand to have a chance to speak more English (usually even their teachers aren’t up to standards). Secondly, it will give you an insight into the Thai education system as well as a good chance to become good friends with students and teachers. For this particular program, the aims and objectives fall under the jurisdiction of the Thai government. In recent years, the government has placed a continued emphasis on the teaching of the English language. Despite this, English literacy rates in Thailand remain one the lowest in Asia. Our aim is to continue to improve the children’s prospects by teaching them English. On the other hand, you will also gain teaching experience, an invaluable life skill! Please take note of the long holidays (mid-March till mid-May and October) as well as public holidays. During such times you can join special classes and English camps that are regularly requested by the local community. Thailand is a tropical country with occasional violent storms, heavy rains and floods. During such times, the above schedule may be subject to change.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

STANDARD ACCOMMODATION Your new home will be one of our 3 ‘Eco Houses’ near Singburi, central Thailand: Lemon House, Twin House and Brown House. They are all located riverside (River Noi – Little River) in the village of Tha Kham and depending on which house you are staying at, is about 8-15km from Singburi (10-15 minutes by car). The 3 houses sleep from 30 to 72 people. All rooms in these houses have 2 bunk beds and are shared on a single gender and maximum of 4 person per room. All rooms have a private western style toilet and cold showers (refreshing in the heat of Singburi). All doors and windows are fitted with mosquito screens and there are 2 fans in every room. Although not directly on site, there are laundry facilities offered by locals which many of our participants take advantage of (this will probably cost you 5? per item, otherwise you can easily wash your clothes by hand.) All houses have a communal area where you can eat, relax, meet fellow participants or use the free Wifi. All the meals served inside the accommodation are vegetarian friendly and will be typically Thai, including plenty of rice dishes and fruits. Water, coffee and tea are available all day long. COMFORT ACCOMMODATION: with extra fee (check Comfort Thailand Project) Important: A security cash deposit of 500TBH is required for the key to your room. It is payable upon arrival in cash and will be returned when they key is given back at the end of your stay. No alcohol is permitted in any of our accommodations, but we are located within walking distance of a local shop and there is even a makeshift bar provided by the friendly locals in front of the accommodation.

SITUATION

You will be located in the outskirts of Singburi, an interesting town 142 km north of Bangkok. Singburi was founded under the reign of King Rama V through the consolidation of 3 small towns located on the bank of The Chao Phraya River. The three small towns, Sing Buri, In Buri and Phrom Buri, were then established as a single town on the west of the Chao Phraya River in 1895. Your new home is set close to the village of Tha Kham, an extremely rural area that will give you the chance to experience the Thailand that very few get to see. There are ATMs and shops in the local village which, depending on the accommodation you will be staying at, is located between 5 minutes by bicycle to 20 minutes by by foot. There are restaurants and small local stores within walking distance of each of the accommodations. Equally, Singburi has plenty to offer and there will be trips throughout the week into this city where you can find shopping malls, markets, restaurants and even a swimming pool! Locally, Singburi itself has plenty to offer in terms of sites and attractions, ranging from its many Buddhist temples. There is also a swimming pool, two shopping centres and many markets. You can also choose to travel to Bangkok during weekends. It takes 2.5 – 3 hours either by mini-van or bus from Singburi . We provide detailed information about this each week.
