*Driving Cambodia’s development through English teaching.*
Conversations With Foreigners is seeking volunteer teachers to teach Khmer students English at our language center in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, starting May 31st 2017.
Profits from student fees help provide a sustainable source of core funding for the development projects of our partner NGO's.
CWF’s unique in-house curriculum draws on the student’s desire to share their traditions and uphold their cultural identity. Content reflects the realities of Cambodia and incorporates many aspects of Cambodian life. This is effective in motivating students to practice their English and promotes a balanced cross-cultural dialogue between them and their teachers.
Volunteering with us will give you those opportunities:
- between 3 to 4.5 hours per day from Monday to Friday
- 3-month teaching ESL program with about 200 hours of classroom experience
