Teaching in Surin

Regular price £575.00

Our Teaching programme in Surin gives you the unique opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the local community, and experience life in a typical Thai town.

With support from our team you will help to care for the young pre-school age children, teaching some basic English words along the way. The children who attend the childcare centre are all from local families who are all so grateful for the help, and the opportunity for their children to interact with native English speakers.

Surin is a vibrant Thai town, and whilst not as developed as big cities, it is packed with character and charm. The people are friendly, the food is tasty, spicy, and cheap; and spending time here will be an unforgettable and authentic Thai experience.

Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrival day. Meet your fellow travellers and our dedicated team, enjoy the sights and sounds of Bangkok.

Day 2 – Orientation and Bangkok Tour. A great day sightseeing and then spend an evening on the famous Khao San Road.

Day 3 – Transfer to Surin. You and your group will take the train to Surin. Taking around 8 hours it is an experience in itself. Sit back in the air conditioning and enjoy the journey. Be sure to take plenty of photos as you watch the Thai countryside go by.

Day 4 – 7 – The teaching experience begins. You will be picked up at a designated meeting point each morning and driven to the school.  A member of the team will help you settle in, plan some activities and get you up and running.  Your average day would run from around 8am to 3pm.

Day 8 – Free day. Time to relax, unwind and explore Surin. Our team will be happy to help you organise activities and let you know the best places to visit in Surin and the surrounding area.

If you are only staying one week, your return travel to Bangkok is not included, but our team will help you make arrangements. If you are staying for more than one week you will have the weekends to relax and explore.

Day-to-Day Activities

  • Planning lessons and activities for a classroom full of primary school children may at first seem daunting, but don’t worry - our experienced, bi-lingual support team are there to guide you every step of the way.
  • Most activities will be based around very basic conversational English, and focus on getting the children talking and interacting with you and other students. It’s all about playing educational games and encouraging the children to speak English. The students will be following a set school curriculum and you will be given guidance from the school and our staff about the subject areas that you will be teaching.
  • Your day will be made up of teaching, as well planning for your next classes. The school will have basic facilities, so you may spend time making flashcards or creating worksheets for your next class.
  • The great thing about teaching is that no two days are the same, so be adaptable and go with the flow. By the end of the week you’ll be amazed at how much the children are learning!

We want to do everything we can to ensure you have an enjoyable stay in Thailand. An important part of this means staying safe, so here are some things to be aware of before you travel:

  • Vaccinations – Thailand is very safe indeed, but as with any hot and humid country there are health risks and viruses that we may not be used to back at home. Contracting anything is very rare, but it’s always best to check with experts before you travel to get the latest and most up to date medical advice. Visit your local travel clinic or your local doctor before travelling to check if you do need any vaccinations or medication.
    *We suggest doing this as far in advance as you can, as some courses of vaccinations can take several weeks to complete*
  • Food – Trying the local food is always a fun part of travelling, but it’s common to have the odd upset stomach within the first few days, as your body adjusts to the climate and different foods you may not be used to. Generally, it’s important to keep hydrated, keep your energy levels up and make sure you eat well and enough.
  • Water – Tap water is not safe to drink so please only drink bottled or filtered water. It’s very easy to buy bottled water throughout Thailand and it’s very cheap too.
  • Alcohol – Please drink in moderation. Remember that it’s very easy to become dehydrated, especially in the heat of Thailand, and so your tolerance to alcohol may be lower than normal.
  • Drugs – Extremely strict drug laws for possession or use. The penalties are severe. Drug use of any kind is not tolerated on any of our experiences.
  • Motorbikes – Riding a moped or motorbike is a common way for locals to travel around, and motorbike taxis are commonplace. Renting a motorbike when traveling through Thailand may look fun, but the fact is that it’s incredibly dangerous and Thailand does in fact have one of the highest road traffic accident fatality rates in the world.
    We strongly recommend you avoid using motorbikes at all costs.
  • Crime levels are no different to at home, and so please be as cautious as you would at home. Don’t leave your belongings on show or unaccompanied, and please don’t ‘show off’ your spending money.
