I spent a month with volunteer teacher Thailand over August and September. I had not done any teaching before I came to Thailand and was a little nervous that I would not know what to do. However the team at VTT were brilliant. They had all the lessons planned and explained me exactly what I was expected to do and how I should do it. You are never left alone whilst teaching as you are paired up with another volunteer. The children are fantastic and very keen to learn English, they are what made my experience of Thailand so enjoyable. If you also want to explore more of Thailand whilst volunteering, VTT is brilliant as it is very close to Phuket and islands such as Phi Phi, so you can easily go and see the sights during the weekends. I found VTT to be a brilliant experience, which I have learnt a lot from, and would definitely recommend it anyone who wants to teach in Thailand.
I went to Thailand with Volunteer Teacher Thailand in August of this year. I had done some reserach and so I wanted a volunteer organisation where I felt like I could make a differnce. Pupils in Thailand really suffer from a lack of English teachers, particularly for tourism and to get into university so I felt this would be perfect. It far exceeded my expectations. The lessons were all organised once you get to the office, which makes life far easier, and the kids are awesome! The schools I was placed in (both a primary and secondary school) were excellent. I cannot recommed this organisation enough if teaching is something you want to do.
