Teaching English to Nepali children is very challenging and rewarding work. Seeing their progression and enthusiasm makes the experience exceptionally satisfying. Volunteers will teach students who are eager to improve their conversational English skills. You will also have the opportunity to teach other subjects such as math, science, music geography, art, sport and dance, depending on your area of interest and expertise. Classes consist of students ranging from ages 5 to 16 years old, depending on the volunteers preference, with older students having more proficient language skills. Typical class sizes range from 30 to 40 students per class. The curriculum for the course will be taken from the Nepali students' standard book, but volunteers are encouraged to create their own lesson plans. Inspiration for creative lesson plans can be found on many websites. Volunteers will have a permanent staff member there to assist with communication with the students and staff members. Classes generally run from Sunday to Friday, with four to six class periods each day.
