Volunteer Teaching
Teaching is a challenge especially for those who teach foreign languages in Indonesia. Many EFL teachers have taught their Junior or Senior High School students for more than 3 years, but getting their students to speak out loud is very difficult. Research findings indicate that Junior and Senior High School graduates have not been able to use their English skills productively. Many Indonesian students admit that speaking skills are very difficult to master.

In searching for a possible way to improve students acquisition of the English language, an expert says that when producing a word, they must pick the meaning before the sound, and when they recognize the word, the sound comes first. In order to recognize the word the students should hear the proper sound of the word first rather than pick its meaning. Since the proper sound ideally comes from native speakers, the students would greatly benefit from listening to native pronunciation and words and messages in various contexts. Thus, allowing students to listen to native speakers voices will increase their spoken vocabulary and encourage their speaking skills.

This volunteer teaching program offers anyone who is a fluent English speaker (people of all ages from students to retirees) a chance to experience the wonders and challenges of teaching English to enthusiastic Indonesian students. This is a great program for those who enjoy social and cultural sharing.

While volunteering this place will serve as your guide to nearby sites: the Botanical garden, flower Garden, President Palace,Gunung Padang. Special offer in July-November 2019: volunteer will get free accommodation,particularly real bed. It is considered for the exchange. Don't miss it!
