Outdoor activities and excursion:
We sometimes take our students to do some activities in the community, city centre and some touristdestinations. By doing so, our students tend to be more relaxed and easier to learn and practice English more than in normal classroom. Volunteers can help them to improve their English communication skills in different settings and fun activities.
Conversation English for Lecturer:
This coming semester, we would like to add one more activity for new volunteers by asking them to
have an informal English conversation class for our Thai lecturers. This activity aims to encourage our
lecturers to practice English and to familiarise them to English and we hope to increase their
confidence in using English for their future career. The help from volunteers will be grateful.
