Teaching Children in Schools on a voluntary program in Malaysia

         

I just wanted to send you an e-mail to thank you and Travellers so much for all your help with everything on my trip to Malaysia. I had a fantastic time while I was out there, and I really enjoyed my teaching placement.

The people over there were all so friendly and welcoming and the children were a lot of fun to teach. Although it was quite difficult teaching the younger children at times because they did not understand very much English, their smiling faces made the lessons a joy!  A lot of the pupils were willing to learn and always made an effort. They always completed the work that I set them which was a relief.

My time at Goshen certainly made me think about teaching as a career in the future. Although, I think it would be a lot more difficult to teach over in England! All the teachers were so helpful, and it was great to chat to them in the staff room at break times.

Lucy and I also taught some of the teachers in the afternoon which was always a lot of fun too. They were very eager to learn English and we always had a few laughs in our lessons. At the end of our time there, Lucy and I were asked to judge the English contest which was very enjoyable to watch. Loads of the children sang and read poems and short stories, and they all did it so well! We were very impressed with how much preparation they had put into the event!

Albert [Travellers' Malaysia Manager] was always very helpful and he was so friendly, we all got on with him so well. It was sad to leave him at the airport, but it was so nice of him to wake up at 4am to come and see us off!

Overall, I would like to say thank you for everything you have done to help make this trip a success. I had the most amazing time out in Sabah and I was so sad to leave. I made some great friends, both with the staff and students, as well as with the other volunteers who hopefully I will keep in touch with for a very long time.

If I ever want to do another volunteering placement, I know where to come! Thank you again!!
