During this gap year volunteer programme in India you will teach English to the monks at monasteries. You will also get a chance to learn about Buddhism at the same time. The individuals will be novice monks, some of them children, and aged from 8 to 25.
Each class at the monastery has around 10 to 15 students. Teaching subjects include English, Maths, Science and a subject they themselves choose.
This program is tailored for those who are interested in teaching English and at the same time learning something new themselves! You will be teaching to monks of all ages inside a monastery, which will give you the unique opportunity to immerse in their day-to-day lifestyle and learn about Buddhism.
You will teach primarily English and various other subjects to the monks, both young and old, for around two to three hours daily. You’ll be given a teaching timetable for your particular location.
