Cambodia is a small country in southeast Asia. This is a community capacity building institution, that offers affordable English language classes for young and adult Khmer students, fostering the development of the modest district of Angkor Borei, in the Takeo province. Located at 80km to the south of the capital city of Cambodia, Phnom Penh, our school is an important part of the community and its deeply valued by the children and their families.
The school was established in 2016 by Kreng Huy, whose goals to help his community and to facilitate an authentic cultural exchange between the students and the foreign volunteers.
In the school we have three local teachers, to help volunteers teaching and explain in Khmer.
We are located in Prey Phkoam Village, in the Takeo Province, near the countryside. There’s plenty of beautiful rivers, fields and canals that complements the ever-smiling local people. Also, there are some incredible tourist attractions nearby, like the 6th and 7th century Phnom Dar temples. And of course that you can easily travel from Angkor Borei to the capital city, Phnom Penh, to the beautiful beaches in the south, to the magic temples of Siem Reap or even cross the border to visit Ho Chi Minh city.
Our school is the perfect choice for newly qualified teachers seeking to expand their skills. Come to help us and develop your teaching abilities in an exciting environment!
You will be helping the students practice english by making conversations with the students and occasionally by leading classes.
Learn about a country but also live as they live with our FREE khmer cooking and language classes !
Meet new people.
If you think that you have a great personality and a heart big enough to share your knowledge, come and apply as a volunteer teacher for IFLS!
Accommodation free. It's part of the school . The people is very generous, kind and friendly. They will warmly welcome you into their home where you will feel very relaxed. :
* 2 x bedrooms available – each one for three people (one double bed and one single bed). The rooms are cooled by fan.
* 1 shared bathroom – this includes a toilet, sink and shower. There are two additional toilets outside the main building for the students.
* Shared living/dining area – This is where you will eat your lunch and dinner unless you wish to eat out.
* Outside kitchen – from here you will smell many wonderful fragrances as Kreng cooks up his delicious dishes. You may want to join in and buy food yourself with the cooking to learn some Cambodian culinary skills.
* Family house – this is a perfect place to relax and have a drink in the evenings. You will probably be joined by the family dogs who are very playful.
You can do with your free-time as you wish. We have plenty of exciting ideas though. You could visit the old temple Phnom Da. It's a historical monument of Cambodia and was built in the 6th century. It's also always fun to visit the local community. People here are very friendly and amazing. For local sights you can visit the nearby pagoda or river. The people here speak Khmer and some of them can speak and understand a little of English.
The school/home-stay is located in Prey Phkoam Village, which is a 1 hours drive away from Takeo City.
Phnom Penh city is just 2 hours from school. There are many excellent cafes (with wifi), and attractions around the town school . It is also nice to explore the main market in town, but if it gets too busy, there is one at 50 minutes ride from the centre as well. Takeo city is just 1 hour from centre.
From the school, you can catch a cheap bus to Phnom Penh City. An amazing city to get lost.
To the south is Kampot province, which is a stunning place to visit.
