    In being a city-bred, metropolitan, well-educated young woman, sometimes I don’t know how good I have it in Vancouver, British Columbia. So I leaned into my spiritually esoteric inner child and accepted a humanitarian mission abroad to teach English to the... Read more

    Volunteering with GVI was by far the best decision I made for my gap year. The staff in Luang Prabang immediately made me feel comfortable and were ready at the airport as soon as my flight landed. I was introduced to the area and local customs as well as... Read more

    I decided to go to Laos with a friend of mine because this country didn't seem surrounded by tourist at this time. We ended up having the best time of our life.m and went back 2 years later. This program is well organised, we had lessons in the first days... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • How do I know if I will be teaching Novice Monks?

      As a volunteer you will not only be working with Novice Monks but also local Lay community members. You will either teach Novice Monks at the local temple or at our after school conversational clubs – it is all dependent on the time of year & the program requirements.

    • Do you teach a class on your own and do you need to be fluent in English

      Volunteers will be team teaching, either with a fellow volunteer or a GVI field staff member. We do ask that volunteers are able to speak and also write English clearly, essentially you will be teaching English to non-English speaks so a sufficient understanding of English grammar is required.

    • Are there any specific times when schools are closed and do the programs still run?

      In Mid-August/early September schools are closed and there are also several Festivals throughout the
      year which causes school to close for a short period of time. We always operate alternative activities such as holiday programs.

      Easy to decide which tour fits the budget, schedule and desired experience by seeing multiple tour operators at one site. Making the reservation was simple and the confirmation responses were very quick. Great way to travel without using a travel agent.
