Teaching English for Underprivileged Children

Volunteer assist with teaching English, arts and crafts, music and sports to underprivileged children at two kindergarten schools in Da Nang city.

During the week, volunteers and a Volunteer Vietnam team member will teach English approximately 16 hours per week. This involves teaching at two kindergarten schools and English classes to social workers and horticulture students at the Social Support Center. When you are not working in the teaching program, you will be helping out with the other programs, such as the physiotherapy program and social care program.

Volunteers are given a weekly schedule of their teaching activities and a meeting each day with a team member to plan for the next day’s activities. Volunteer Vietnam has many teaching resources on site to help with your lesson planning. If you have experience in teaching, our team is always eager to hear your ideas. If you have no experience in teaching, the Volunteer Vietnam team will help you to write a lesson plan. You are always accompanied by a team member in the classroom; you are never left alone to teach a class!



The project highlights: 

  • Having opportunities to help children in hard-conditions to approach English language.
  • Create positive effects and bring happiness to kindergaten children.
  • Meeting and working with different people and experience a new culture. 
  • And best of all, new friends sharing unforgettable experience!
