Teaching English in Thailand and Southeast Asia
Volunteer Teaching English is easy with Openmind Projects
We do it the trending, natural way in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Nepal!
Make learning English fun and interesting. Give children the confidence to speak, not focus on perfect grammar!
English is the gateway to further studies and better jobs but students in Southeast Asia score poorly in international tests. Isolated village children don't even get a chance to speak English! Their English teachers only speak some, if any, English!
Rote learning by heart, English grammar, vocab, is the traditional way of teaching English. So students find English boring and pointless. But you can help them to like it, and to learn! Our volunteers teaching English make English fun and practise conversation in the classroom and outside too in their free time!
Teaching English Abroad Opportunities in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Nepal. Teaching English as a foreign language with Openmind Projects in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar or Nepal gives the overseas volunteer an opportunity to help local people improve their English which can improve their lives!
Open Mind projects encourages the "learning by doing" teaching method which I found very beneficial for the students, as it helped them memorize things better! So, you have to be creative and come up with games to teach them things, which can mean as much fun for you as for them.
Make it fun to learn English, give the shy children confidence to speak when you volunteer with us in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Nepal.
Make new beginners talk about things they like! Children like to play and act, make them learn in role plays and games. Help them to make simple sentences. Make them confident to speak English! Start with a situation the children recognize.

Make more advanced students interested to learn more English! Find out what they are interested in learning about. Let them search online. Make presentations, share them, debate. We do this at our Camps and Center and campers and trainees love it!
Learning by doing in teams. Asian students love this!
You don't have to be an English teacher. Teaching English with Openmind Projects is easy. At our monthly Volunteer & Cross Cultural Training we train new volunteers to teach our role play way. You practice at a school, together with real students in a class room!
A typical English volunteer teacher day. Volunteers at schools have 3-4 lessons per day and spend extra time to prepare lessons. Many volunteers also practice English with their students after school talk about culture and hobbies, sing, play games and balls!
Volunteers on most projects teach some English.
Internships. Interns with teaching, role play, drama and similar backgrounds are welcome to stay longer periods and help us with new teach English ideas!
