The day always starts early, with a breakfast that normally consists of pancakes or rice porridge and helping with chores around base (if staying at GVI's base camp). Monday through Friday you will travel to local and rural schools to provide English lessons and activities for school children. In the evenings you will be responsible for making sure you are prepared for the next day of teaching. If staying at a home stay you will provide the same volunteer assistance as above based on the demands of the community. The short-term teaching project offers numerous incredibly exciting opportunities to its volunteers. As a participant you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a traditional community within a tropical paradise, live and work alongside local people experiencing their culture, food and way of life, learn Thai language and how to cook a number of mouthwatering Thai favourites. In your spare time you can explore beaches, islands, mountains and caves of the surrounding area. This is an unforgettable experience!
