This is a great way to invest in the lives of students who are uniquely positioned to impact this region of the world!

July 2018:

Time Frame:

  • Plan to arrive by June 25th.
  • Plan to fly home no earlier than August 1st.


  • Those who have finished their junior year of collage are preferred, however, mature persons who have finished their sophomore year will also be considered.
  • It is not necessary to have teaching experience, although that would be helpful.
  • There will be a lot of demands on you, so you need to be in good health.
  • You should be willing to work as part of a team of volunteers from around the world as soon as you arrive.

The Work:

  • You should expect to teach about one to two hours of English Conversation class every day (Monday to Friday).
  • This is not just a tutoring session. The job includes additional hours of lesson preparation, homework grading, student interaction, etc.

Housing and Expenses:

  • Room and board is provided.
  • You are responsible for your airfare and spending money.
  • You may choose to live in a dorm or with students in the “English House” residence. The English House requires a commitment on your part to share meals and spend your free time with your roommates so they can continue to practice their English. This provides a great opportunity for building relationships with the students.

Testimonial from an English House participant:

“The university where the (OP) mission does most of its work hosted a group of volunteers (including myself) from across the globe and denominational lines, from countries as diverse as the United States, Wales, and the Netherlands.

We came to the university to serve in the English Conversation Office (ECO), where we each taught one or two classes.

While teaching was our task, we were also dedicated to shining the light of the Gospel into the darkness our students lived in, through relationship-building, prayer, and welcoming students into our lives.”
