Teaching English to the children in Nepal is at times challenging, but seeing their progression and enthusiasm make the overall experience extremely satisfying. The volunteers will get the opportunity to teach students who are eager to improve their conversational English skills. Volunteers in this program will teach English to children in government schools; you can also teach in other disciplines such as math, science, music, geography, art, dance, etc. Depending on your specific area of expertise.
The students that you will be teaching range from 5-16 years old, and are typical in groups of around 30-50 students per class. The subject material that you will be teaching i.e. the curriculum for the key subjects will be taken from the Nepali students' standard book. However volunteers are also encouraged to create their own lesson plans; lots of inspiration for classes can be found online as well.
Each institution has its own permanent staff member who assists volunteers with their teaching and in communicating with the children and colleagues. Classes generally run six days a week, with four to six class periods each day and a break for lunch.
Teaching English includes: Teaching English at the school, Orphanage, women's group and village community library.
