Teaching English in Rural Luang Prabang, Laos.

The school has an enrollment of 120 children and is situated on a hill overlooking the mountains. It is in the village of Kok Gniew, the Pineapple Village as this fruit is the crop that is principally grown here. GVI staff and volunteers travel 45 minutes by tuktuk one morning a week, to deliver English lessons from Kindergarten to Year 5. Reaching every student in the school. These children previously have had no access to English lessons. 

Greetings of Saibaidee, the children so proud of themselves for knowing the letters of the English alphabet, are some of the delights of working at this school. It is an amazing experience to offer these children the opportunity of learning English. 

The initial assessment of the students’ level of English acquisition is that all grades have started at the same entry point - Early beginner level.  It is intended that our main teaching focus will be on developing the skill of reading. To become a confident and competent reader of English. Which is a life long valuable skill that will stand to these children.
