Greenheart Travel Reviews
Homestay in France spring 2017
Submitted by Jane | February 20, 2018
Overall, my two month homestay in France was a very positive experience for me and I learned a lot. I just wanted to thank Megan Arzbaecher at Greenheart Travel for her help and enthusiasm. I think I was fortunate that I'm independent and don't mind doing things by myself because the family really didn't have a lot of extra time. Also the fact that I speak French helped a lot, it would have been quite challenging otherwise as I needed to do a lot of navigating by myself.
In terms of the English teaching, the family's main goal was to prepare for a holiday they were going to take in California, we have kept in touch and they let me know the holiday went really well for them and all the English lessons and my efforts with them really helped and made a difference to them. I was delighted to hear that it was a positive and beneficial experience for them also.
Greenheart Travel teach in Myanmar
Submitted by Reina - Yangon Myanmar | February 07, 2018
Greenheart Travel is an excellent way to teach and travel, all while having a group of friendly and caring people supporting you along the way. The Greenheart Travel team and their partner organizations work with you closely to ensure that your transition overseas goes as smooth as possible -- I'm over halfway through my contract and I have still yet to feel culture shock or homesickness! I highly doubt my experience moving to another country to teach would have been this wonderful if I hadn't have chose to go through Greenheart Travel.
The initial week of immersion activities was crucial for familiarizing myself with my new host community and developing relationships with the other teachers. I never thought I could have such an easy transition when moving across the world.
I only wish I could've met my (awesome) roommate prior to moving in! Also upon initially applying to the program, I wish it was clearer that housing during orientation/TESOL program is actually paid by the student as a deposit, the Greenheart Travel website makes it seem as if housing is covered (student is not responsible for paying this extra amount as a deposit).
My advice to any new participants on this program would be that the biggest challenge is over! You've made the leap towards moving aboard. As long as you remain open to connecting with the other teachers, co-workers, and locals in your neighborhood (all who will likely be very different from you) then you will have an incredible and enriching journey.
I think the program has been wonderful in every way, I really don't have any complaints or critiques.
Teach in Myanmar
Submitted by Leah Galloway | January 22, 2018
I love Myanmar. The people, the food, the culture and most of all I love to teach in Myanmar. Teaching in Mandalay and now in Yangon, has been an enriching experience that has given me so much knowledge, wisdom and solice that it is one of the most important and amazing experiences I have had.

I would really like to go to Costa Rica again, it really changed me and brought out the other side of me because I was scared of change. This trip showed me that change is okay and don't be scared because you'll regret if you hadn't done it. You have to be prepared for change in cultures and I learned that on this trip. The whole time I was there, people greeted me and didn't treat me different just because I came from another country. Our host families treated us like their own. I loved that part. Greenheart Travel has good communication skills with the people traveling and the people who lives in the community. I think the pre-departure they gave me all the information that I needed to know.
Greenheart Travel's values are really at the centre of this programme
Submitted by Joe | October 31, 2017
Greenheart Travel's values are really at the centre of this programme and for whatever reason you decide to be part of the programme I think you should always consider this. The most valuable thing that I have gained from the experience is the sense of the world coming a little bit closer together. People from different backgrounds sharing moments, knowledge and love to grow as both individuals but also as a world together. The programme is really excellent and I find it difficult to find ways to improve it. Some of the challenges and issues would be hard to avoid due to the scale of the programme and the diversity of placements
