This is a program where volunteer work will basically be in local schools. Here you will have to teach English to Nepali children. The English you teach will have to mostly be conversational. You will also have to handle reading classes along with that. This has been devised for the purpose of letting Nepali children learn the language in a practical way and may also be able to improve their verbal skills. A lot of schools in Nepal lack in funds and therefore education becomes difficult. In Nepal there could be 10 to 80 students in a class and students are between 4 and 16 years of age. No classes are held on Saturdays. There could be festivals, examinations or public holidays which could disrupt the teaching schedule at different times of the year. Volunteers are requested to take a second choice of program during such times. You can also think about teaching in an informal location in the orphanage program where many children need extra assistance with school work. In order to teach in the schools where these programs are held, you do not need to have any formal teaching qualifications. However, you are required to have a good command over the language and your written and spoken English must be good.
