This was my second time on the Teaching English to Novice Buddhist Monks in Laos program. This time I spent 6 weeks on the program. After my first trip to Laos last year(2012), I found the experience EXTREMELY fulfilling so much so that it encouraged me complete a 130hrs TEFL training course. The GVI staff and team in Laos are wonderful to work with. The program is very efficiently run and the confidence and good name that GVI has established in the city can be clearly seen. As the program is working with Buddhist Novices there are a number of rules that have to be followed in order to honour the restrictions imposed on the novices and these are clearly explained. There are more than sufficient teaching tools and the staff are always available to assist. This is definitely a program that I will promote to anyone wanting to work with GVI. One feels a sense of pride and fulfillment.
