    4.5 - Excellent

    I’ve been with GVI for almost 5 1/2 of my 6 months here as a TEFL Intern and it’s been incredible. All of the staff are amazing -they are so passionate, interested and supportive with both project work and just being there when you need them outside of project life. The accommodation is shared dorm rooms and a common room where all the volunteers and staff hang out -I think it is better than what I expected! We also always have WiFi which is definitely a bonus if you stay as long as I have because keeping in touch with family would otherwise be very difficult! You get the opportunity to meet people from all over the world who are also doing GVI projects, and then travel with them at weekends to visit beautiful locations in Thailand. Teaching at the local schools is hard work- you have to be creative and enthusiastic (even if grammar isn’t your favourite topic...) - but one of the most wonderful experiences you will ever have. The students will almost always leave you with a smile on your face and it is so positive to be around them. Overall, this trip has been one of the hardest but most amazing experiences of my life and I thoroughly recommend coming to volunteer with GVI.

    Impact can sometimes be very difficult to measure, but volunteering on this program allows one to see exactly how you can make a difference in the lives of so many. It's not very often one gets to live and work with the local people of Thailand. The furthest thing away from what you would expect as a 'tourist' but so much more rewarding! The children we taught were so enthusiastic and hungry to learn that it made teaching so much fun! The best apart about it all is that you don't need to be a ' qualified English teacher. Inclusive in the program is a introduction to TEFL course which gets you ready for the classroom. I would highly recommend this program!

    Truly an amazing experience! GVI staff is there for you from the start. They pick you up at the airport, run a very useful training and orientation and transport you to your accommodation, in where you meet like minded people and life long friends who all want to make a positive difference in these children's lives in Thailand. Definitely would recommend, as I can honestly say teaching in Thailand had such a positive impact in my life!

    1.0 - Bad

    I can't speak for other GVI locations, but the one in Thailand is run by idiots and criminals. Everything they say is a lie. They say your money goes to helping the community, which is why you must live in squalor and eat terrible food while there. But in truth, no money goes to people in need. It's funneled straight into the owners' pockets. This whole thing was a scam from start to finish. We were put in danger, we were neglected, and we were given an experience far less than what we were promised. Beware of this company. They are liars and thieves.

    Whatever you do, do not go to GVI Thailand. It's staffed by complete morons, and the company takes your money and uses it to live lavishly, while putting you in abject squalor and telling you it's for the good of the Earth. It's all a scam and a lie. They don't help the community. They don't help the local wildlife. They are charlatans.

Questions & Answers

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

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

      In April, October & late December 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 summer camps.

    • I need to do an internship as part of my study course, am I able to use this program for my internship

      Yes of course you can! We have a Long term teaching internship program (24-week duration) that runs alongside this project, you will have specific training and complete a leadership course and we will give
      you a certificate after participation on project and this can act as a reference to your University or any future employer. Please do inquire for more information on this program option.
