Making new friends

My most positive experience during my stay in the program with GVI were the children, making new friends and travelling during the weekends.
It was just that the living conditions worse than I thought.

It wonderful to gain invaluable insight into a completely different culture

Most positive experiences were getting to meet the community, which in our case involved meeting teachers and students from various schools in Ao Luk. It was also wonderful to gain invaluable insight into a completely different culture, including the language, food, music and customs. I also enjoyed the group atmosphere of staying with people from all over the world who had a shared vision to help people.

I developed my teaching skills

My most memorable experiences were meeting other amazing volunteers, working with the different partners and children in Thailand and developing my own teaching skills especially in teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL).

Teaching was wonderful!

Teaching was wonderful! So were the side trips, particularly the Emerald Pool and Hot Springs. Everyone who went to Tiger Temple loved it. Staff were very knowledgeable about where to go to travel on weekends and very helpful in giving advice about getting around Thailand.
