James is one of GVI’s 6 month English Teaching Interns. James started as a volunteer in October 2010 gaining his 100 hour TEFL qualification with GVI and teaching free English classes for the Ao Luk community at the Non-Formal Education Center.

For James 3 month teaching placement he has been based in Laem Sak, a coastal fishing community in the south of Ao Luk. During the day James teaches English at Pratheep Tham Foundation School a new Muslim school which GVI has assisted with teaching support and facility improvements since their opening in May 2010.

In the evenings James teaches free evening English classes for the community at his accommodation. Around 6-8 community members come by in the evenings to learn English and practise their speaking and listening skills.

James has had a great time so far in Laem Sak. He’s had the opportunity to visit a number of other schools and villages in the region. James has been embraced by the local communities and has had a unique experience.
