Projet: 

The language center was established in 2010 by sir Thich Nhuan Tam, a monk from a local Buddhist pagoda in GoVap district, Ho Chi Minh city, in order to support young people and students who are underprivileged to have a chance to learn a foreign language properly. With his active dedication & contribution and many individual sponsors & volunteers, thousands of students & children have the chance to learn a foreign langue for free.
There are 6 language classes: French, English, German, Korean, Japanese, Chinese (From Basic/Beginning to Advance). Center opens from 8 AM to 5 PM every day. On Saturday and Sunday, there is a class for pupils (from 6 years old to 15 years old).
Teachers are international and local volunteer teachers.
At the moment, there are 50 volunteer teachers and about 1.000 students. After finishing the ​course, most of the students can find a good job.

Travail: 

Volunteers will spend time with the students and help to improve their language skill, organize games and other activities for them.
The participants through this project will also have a ​chance to exchange culture with local student/children and understand the challenges on the life of children/students in Vietnam.

Hébergement et nourriture: 

Volunteers will stay in a dormitory, sharing rooms with volunteers of other nationalities joining the volunteering work. Normally, rooms are arranged with about 2-5 volunteers per room.
