Our name is Asela and Aidyn we are two sisters, with family support we opened an education center in Kulan. It is a quiet town with beautiful mountains.
We are private organization.
Each class has 4-8 students of different age group. From 7 to 23 years old. They are all divided by age and level of English knowledge. We have three English language teachers from Kazakstan. They are very exited to meet with native English speakers.
We love teaching and our goal is to help people in our local area be able to speak English.
We are looking for volunteers excited to help local people learning English in our local area. Some of the help will be at home, helping housework, education center, helping the students practice their English, and some help will need with creating a activities.
Volunteers may be able to integrate themselves in this environment and carry out English lessons.
Volunteers are also encouraged to get involved with other subjects and extra-curricular activities.
With some groups you can follow the text book, with others just practice their communication skills.
Once a week we have two "Speaking Club" sessions in the morning and afternoon. The students will want to find out about you and the country you come from.
In conclusion, the work included would be as stated above: teaching, delivering flyers/promoting the school, along with conducting the Speaking Club sessions.
We are new organization and we are open for new people and new ideas.
PLEASE READ: after our first volunteer experience, we felt a need to clarify a few things:
We appreciate if volunteers respect the spirit of Help-ex; this is not Couchsurfing or simply a free place to stay, because we do need real, actual help from volunteers, with measurable impact and results.
If you are serious person about coming to Kazakhstan and interested in being involved in a unique, authentic experience that will make an real impact on people from a small village in a developing country, please feel free to contact me :)

A stay at my home with my family and meal 2 times in a day breakfast and dinner. You will have your own room with furniture and WiFi.
