Map5 Weeks at Phakdee School- Jeremy Kaelin (Switzerland)

Well, my 5 weeks of volunteering at Phakdee school are already done. And there is only one thing I want to do right now : go back to Thailand!

My stay in Phakdee was one of the best experiences I ever had in my life. I would like to thank again all the teachers, the staff and the students for their hospitality and their kindness. I've never seen such open minded people!

About the teaching, I was the only foreign teacher at the school. I was pretty busy almost every day of the week (between 4 and 5 hours of teaching every day). But every lesson was a pure moment of joy. I was wondering what I could teach before traveling to Thailand, but I only understood once I met the teachers and the students, and then everything became really easy and fun. Like every Thai person says, mai pen rai (no problem).

For the rest: activities, food, people, there is so much to say that the only way to understand it is to go there and experience it by oneself. If you're the right kind of person (see the website for qualifications), you will not regret it, trust me!
