TSC Team Members may choose to teach at:
part of the curriculum in all public schools in Thailand.
Thai students begin studying English in first grade. Most
Thai students have poor speaking skills, since they are
taught by a native Thai speaker. Most students have never
spoken with a native English speaker. TSC will provide you
with a handbook containing lesson plans, games, and songs.
The Thai school staff will offer assistance and guidance. As
a teacher you will have the privileged opportunity to work
with a Thai educational institution. You will be given the
opportunity to lead classes in conversational English;
teaching vocabulary, reading, pronunciation, comprehension,
grammar, speaking and listening.
If you can reach or change the thinking of just one student
–then you have excelled. TSC team members may teach at
primary schools, secondary schools, orphanages, schools for
the hearing impaired, vocational schools, and colleges.
Help us help empower students and teachers with knowledge of
HIV/AIDS through classroom education or lecture. We ask our
participants, to give HIV/AIDS presentations to classes at
schools, English camps, scout outings, evening meetings or
weekend gatherings. We provide you with lesson plans for the
presentation. The remainder of the time our participants
teach English, in a Thai classroom, along side a Thai
teacher at a local school, orphanage or college. TSC team
members lead classes in conversational English. We emphasize
vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension, grammar, speaking,
reading, and listening. We augment this by adding the fun of
games and songs to our teaching. Usually, you will teach in
the classroom with your host or counter part. They will help
you prepare for the task of teaching and assist in
translation, if necessary. In addition to the HIV/AIDS and
English teaching we ask you to teach other subjects of which
you may be knowledgeable. Team TSC members may teach other
subject such as computers, geography, environment, or math.
(TSC Education team members spend the five week days at the
assigned project school.)
