Teaching English in Nepal: A Rewarding Experience for Volunteers
Teaching English in Nepal is a rewarding way to make a real contribution to the local community. Volunteers work with students ages 5-16 in classes of 20-35 students. While volunteers follow the school’s standard curriculum, they are also encouraged to create their own lesson plans. Each institution has a permanent staff member who can assist volunteers with teaching techniques and help them communicate effectively with the children.
The teaching program runs all year round, except for school festivals and exam preparation breaks. The duration of the program is flexible, ranging from 1 to 20 weeks.
Benefits of Teaching English in Nepal
Volunteers typically wake up around 7am and start their day with a cup of morning tea. After breakfast around 9am, they head to the project site, where they teach English classes for 3-5 hours a day. Classes are 40 minutes long, and they run six days a week, from Sunday to Friday. Saturdays are days off.
In addition to teaching English, volunteers are encouraged to share their teaching methods and skills with their colleagues, and to do art and crafts with the students. In their free time, volunteers can support their host families with household and agricultural work, or they can play and do educational activities with the community children. This is a great way to immerse themselves in Nepali culture and learn the language.
In addition to teaching English, volunteers can also participate in a variety of other community projects in Nepal. These projects include:
Volunteers are encouraged to bring games and activities resources to help make these projects more engaging and effective.
