Teach English as our Education Volunteer Overseas
Given recent Covid-19 pandemic we're temporary closed until mid July 2020
Openmind Projects is teaching underprivileged youth English, EdTech, and important life skills such as teamwork, self-confidence, and critical thinking in the learning by doing way. Our goal is to create self-sufficient, lifelong learners with a great chance of escaping the poverty trap and rise into a better future.
Why English is matter to underprivileged children?
- Students in Southeast Asia don’t do well in international English tests. They memorize English so they never learn to speak. Together we can change!
- According to the EF English Proficiency Index 2019, prepared by Swiss-based Education First, Thailand scored 47.62, which is regarded as very low proficiency.
- Myanmar and Cambodia were classified in the very low proficiency group, ranking the 86th and 94th places respectively.
- Research shows that English is the official language of 53 countries and is spoken as a first language by approximately 400 million people. Another 1 billion also use English on a regular basis. The British Council estimates that by 2020, 2 billion people in the world will be studying the English language, eliminating communication barriers between global citizens, making it easier for information to flow.
- Thailand relies heavily on tourism as one of its primary sources of revenue, but low English proficiency has led to negative perceptions, as tourists prefer destinations where they can communicate more comfortably.
Our Solution: Volunteer Teach English to underprivileged children and village women
Help us make English fun, for kids to learn and volunteers to teach
After many years working with young students, we have our own teach English style with volunteers, at our Center, camps and field projects. We inspire, build confidence to learn English. Village children find our Learning by Doing way to be more fun and so it is more effective!
Help us inspire children learn
Our Multi Learning means learning in role-plays, from basic to more advanced, simulating familiar, daily situations. And like students learn to search online for information and tell each other and volunteers what they find. They make presentations, videos, share online. They listen and speak, read and write and use body language too, all in one task!
