Secure your place on this project for just £99 Deposit - Limited Time Offer! Your teaching placement takes place in Sabah on the Malaysian island of Borneo. You'll teach in a rural primary or secondary schools, located in a rural village environment in the northern part of the state. This is an excellent project where you get to be immersed in the local way of life and at the same time gain some very valuable experience!
The school that Travellers volunteers attend holds around 350 pupils. It comprises a Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary Schools and teaching can be arranged within any one of these areas. You will usually work about 10 – 15 lessons per week, and you'll be in demand wherever you go! The children at this school are not used to seeing westerners and so you may find that people stare at you at first, but they will welcome you into their school and you will soon find that Malaysia feels like a second home.
You'll be given a timetable of lessons and will have the freedom to plan and take your own classes (with assistance, if required). Your main focus is on assisting with conversational English but you may also be asked to help within other areas, such as sport, drama and music, if you have an interest in these.
Both Science and Maths are taught in English, and as such assistance with these subjects at basic level is really appreciated. Some of the classes will be conversation based and some tuition based to groups or individuals formally and informally outside the classrooms. You will be given plenty of assistance from the principal and teachers until such time as you have gained confidence in your own abilities.
Outside the classroom you can assist the pupils in language group work, debating, public and choral-speaking, pronunciation practice, reading aloud, discussions, games, broadcasts on the school radio, drama productions and presentations, quizzes and general knowledge competitions.
