I am a physics lecturer in the education faculty of Riau University located in Pekanbaru, Indonesia. I want to prepare my students for the future by helping them to become confident with their communication skills in English. To this aim, l sometime give my physics lessons in English. Oral communication in English is not problematic for me, but I am not comfortable with writing. This is why I asked one of my ex-volunteers to help me with writing my profile and handling written communication.

My students are more enthusiastic about practicing English when they can exchange with foreigners, particularly from outside Asia. Therefore, I am looking for mature and open-minded individuals who can interact with them. The interactions can take the form of presentations about your country, seminars about your domain or expertise (physics and engineering are highly valued), informal discussions, English grammar lessons... The minimum commitment period is two weeks and about 12h/week are expected to be spent with the students. In exchange, I will provide you with accommodation in a traditional Indonesian house.

I am also setting up an English house (kind of school). To help me with, I need people that can commit for a minimum of three weeks (one month is preferred) and accept to teach English for about 5h/day, 5 days/week. As this project is just starting up, the volunteers need to be flexible and may also have to help with administrative tasks, elaborating best teaching practices...If you choose this option, I will provide you with 3 free meals and help you with funding your flight to Indonesia. This naturally comes on top of the free accommodation.

During days off, I will bring you to visit some local attractions or more remote places such as the Bono river (famous for surfing) or the mystic Muara Takus temple.
