If you are interested to volunteer teacher in Nepal Schools and love working with School Children in Nepal; then this is the right one for you.
In Nepal we have two types of education system, the private schools where the medium of teaching is English and governmental school where few subjects are taught in English and rest in Nepali medium. The governmental schools are handled with very less resources and the English volunteer teachers are always in demand. Nepal as a touristic country has English second language and the young children in Nepal are trying to learn English language because it is international language in this global world for world trade, commerce and communication. Without knowledge of English language a person in this time not only remains incomplete but opportunities will be severely restricted too.
There are many schools and institutions that educate children, but they’re not affordable to those who need them most. Our volunteer teachers will work in schools attended by students of low-income families in rural villages around pokhara. You will teach students who are eager to learn. You’ll converse with them to improve their pronunciation, teach English according to official curriculum, or use your own material or creative ideas in a different but fun way. This is also a good opportunity to gain teaching experience, serve those who need and appreciate you, and to help build your own career.
As a volunteer teacher, you will work in public schools or in child care homes teaching English language.In the public school the size of the class is usually 10 to 20 students. You will teach English 2-3 hours a day from Sunday to Friday. You might also be asked to take part in other activities like games, painting, music, sanitation, computers and arts. Nepali schools follow fixed courses for teaching English. However, you’re welcome to implement your own method.
