Reviews for Summer camp in Thailand, teaching English


review 24 Aug 2008

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There are so many to choose from, but the most memorable has to be when we visited the mainland to teach in a Thai school. The children were not used to foreigners and were really excited to see us, they had us signing autographs and posing for lots of photos!! The school had organised and practised dances for us which we really appreciated and enjoyed watching!! The snorkelling trip on Koh Tao was also brilliant!!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The only tips I could give would be to prepare yourself for the amount of travelling involved and for the heat but to just enjoy yourself!!! Oh yes, and take a VISA card for unforeseen emergencies or for booking flights and hotels out there.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

I feel that this holiday greatly benefited the local people as it gave them the opportunity to learn English in a fun and interactive way, which they seemed to really enjoy. When visiting the school on the mainland it also gave the local community and parents the opportunity to learn English and mix with the English volunteers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Overall this holiday was brilliant I had no idea what to expect before I went but I had so much fun, met lots of lovely people, learnt about a new culture and felt I was able to give something back to the community. The tour operator looked after us and were always at hand if we had any questions or queries both prior to the trip and during, they were all very kind and welcoming and helped in making it an amazing experience!
