English as the global language and intercultural learning are important for local Thai people to understand and being for global citizens. English is also the gateway to open mind and knowledge. After the project was created by VSA Thailand and has been successful for eight years. Former volunteers came to give the opportunity for children in schools and local community. Many local people improved their English skills through exchanging with international volunteers, or at least they try to speak the English language more and dare to face and work with the foreigner even though they cannot speak English. Moreover, volunteers’ activities impacted local community. They used to stay lively and trustily with the foreigner.
