Volunteers will prepare English study clips for online study and will teach them online following schedule of each schools.

When the school is allowed to open volunteers will follow the teaching schedule in each school, planing with teacher and make the conversation in the classes.

The goal of ICL project is to communicate in English with students, encourage them to use English with you. Because in Thailand less Thai English teacher can speak English well by culture barrier.

So volunteer will create the situation for student to use English in the class with non-formal education tools such as Song, Game, Creating English Situation in the class (for example market situation to let then learn more word or some conversation that could happen in the market), basic English in daily life, ect.
Volunteers can ask for equipment for lesson preparing from teacher in the school.

School and kindergarten atmosphere, Thai teacher could not speak English well (as well as children), be prepared on this, you may face difficulty of communication situation but international volunteers will be together. So at least you have friends who can communicate with you. But Thai people really easy going, like to support, help and keen to learn if you are open mind to teach them or communicate with them slowly by slowly.

Intercultural and Language (ICL) – Nakhon Ratchasima, learning and sharing the intercultural and language still are the main purpose. Volunteers will share and exchange culture, language, and knowledge with the local community and students in the school.

English as the global language and intercultural learning are important for local Thai people to understand and being for global citizens. English is also the gateway to open mind and knowledge. After the project was created by VSA Thailand and has been successful for eight years. Former volunteers came to give the opportunity for children in schools and local community. Many local people improved their English skills through exchanging with international volunteers, or at least they try to speak the English language more and dare to face and work with the foreigner even though they cannot speak English. Moreover, volunteers’ activities impacted local community. They used to stay lively and trustily with the foreigner. Local people have a chance to learn, accept, and adopt the ways of life with the different cultures.

Ban Krogluek School is primary school, there are about 10 teachers and 100 students from kindergarten (2-6 years old), pratomkuksa 1-6 (7-12 years old). VSA sent volunteers to Ban Krogluek School since 2015.
