The best summer of my life

I can honestly say this has been the best summer of my life. Its sad to thin its coming to an end. I wish I had more time to stay in this genuinely beautiful and peaceful country. If I was not starting a new job back in New York City, I would extent my contract with out a doubt. While I came here to teach my students, they have taught me so much more in return. I have learned the value of patience which is not easy growing up in New York.

GeoVisions was such a great company to start with and Xplore Asia was a great transition into a country I knew nothing about. GeoVisions had such great customer service and would answer to any and every (which was a lot) e-mail I sent. Since me and my girlfriend were doing the Summer Teach in Thailand together they assured us there would be no problem placing us together. Which there was not. However, they have ZERO knowledge of the placement as the second you land in Bangkok you are handed off to a company called XploreAsia. XploreAsia was a great company which really made the transition easy. This is a culture I knew nothing about and after a full action packed week orientation I felt as if I have been here for years! The hardest part about orientation was leaving the people we formed such tight relationships with in that short week. I don't have a negative thing to say about this experience as I kept my exactions low (one thing you have to do in this country). Go in with an open mind and know what you want to get out of the experience. I would love to do it again, if not here, somewhere else across the world!

Thank you GeoVisions and XploreAsia!

My time in Thailand

Volunteering abroad in Thailand was one of the most amazing & memorable experiences I've had in life so far! I decided to volunteer abroad only about two weeks before departure & I am glad I did! The children there are so loving, happy, and appreciative of your time; their smiles and attitudes show it! I had such a wonderful time in Thailand, with the perfect mixture of teaching and exploring Thai culture & I would go back in a heart beat!

Teaching while learning

This was an amazing experience to learn about a new culture. The volunteers were able to teach wonderful children and learn from the, as well. We learned about the culture and ourselves along the way. Each day we were provided with the opportunity to reflect on the day and create engaging lessons for the students we were teaching. We spent a lot of time together exploring the country and getting a feel for the Thai lifestyle.

More Adventure than teaching

I did this program wanting to travel and experience Thailand. The program was more focused on immersing the volunteers in the Thai way of life. I wish we were more well-prepared with our teaching and our lessons, as most of us felt thrown into the lesson plans. Overall I really enjoyed this experience, but some of the volunteers that wanted it to be more focused on teaching felt disappointed.

Summer in Thailand

This program was amazing and Thailand is absolutely beautiful. I really enjoyed the time spent in all the different cities as well as the friends I have made. This was my first time traveling without my parents and I didn't know anyone else who was doing the program...so I was a bit nervous. After the first full day with group, I got closer with a few of the girls which helped with the homesickness.

Even though we only taught for a few days, I had a wonderful experience in the schools and I bonded with a few very adorable Thai students. I think I will definitely come back to Thailand in the future and hope to go back to one of the schools and teach again.
