"One of the best things about this project in Thailand is that you do things and see things that you would never see if you were travelling with friends or alone.

"When I entered the project I had a lot of expectations, and almost none of them were met as the way I thought they would be, it was much better! This was my first trip to a foreign country ever and my first volunteer project and I think it was a really good life experience. I am already looking for something more to volunteer to, and I know it’s because my experience here was as good as it was."

"It is tremendous to see how excited the kids are to see us every time that we are at the school. I have learnt a lot about teaching English for the past week and how to manage a Thai classroom. This has been my first teaching experience, other than tutoring, in which I have a lot to learn about techniques and skills to use. I have learnt and improved on nonverbal commands and cues, since most of the students know very little English."

"Life on base was something that worried me before I arrived. Sharing a bedroom with 11 others, living out of a backpack and no hot water? How was I going to cope? I can honestly say that life on base is great. Everyone works hard to keep the camp clean and tidy and it really does feel like home. It’s nice to get back from a hard day at school and just chill out with everyone and share stories. I have made friends from all over the world and have never laughed so much in my life."

"One of my favourite parts of this experience has been walking around the town and meeting people. Be it shopkeepers, kids running out of their houses to say hello or locals riding on motorbikes, everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We are often given gifts of fruit by our students and other locals, and it is so satisfying to have a past student stop you in the street to practise their English skills! GVI has a great reputation in the area and I have enjoyed being a part of the the GVI group and the community."

"Everyone was extremely friendly and our first visits to the schools were filled with welcoming smiles. Over the next couple weeks as I got to know the students and the teachers I began to get a good idea of what life in Laos is like. The volunteers were invited to dinner several times and even had the opportunity to attend a Baci ceremony in a village outside of Luang Prabang. It was nice to see the various sides of Lao culture that you might not see as a regular tourist."

"The TEFL course itself is fairly intense, especially in the first week or two, but as I progressed through it everything began to click and I could see how the theory applied in the classroom. It was a bit nerve-wracking being thrown in the deep end and teaching on day three, but it was a lot of fun! The students were so enthusiastic and keen to learn and I’ve loved teaching them. It’s been challenging and I’ve definitely been taken out of my comfort zone but I feel like I’ve learnt a lot about myself."

"Admittedly, I was surprised by the amount of time I spent working on lessons, and by the effort I put in. The course really challenges you to consider what will (and won’t) work in the classroom. However, the hours I spent working out of the classroom benefited me massively, when the time came to teach a class. The GVI staff was so friendly and supportive – they couldn’t have made it any easier for me and my fellow volunteers!"
