MLTV1901-1 Intercultural and Language (ICL) – Songkhla, learning and sharing the intercultural and language still are the main purpose. The volunteers can share and learn culture, language, and knowledge with the local community and children in school. Also, the volunteers will know more about Thailand during working in the local community Nowadays, English language as the global language and intercultural learning are important for local Thai people, especially Thailand as a tourism country. After the project was created by VSA Thailand and has been successful for seven years. The great volunteers came to give the opportunity for children in schools where they are in the poor local community. Many local people can improve their English skills through a group by a group of volunteer, or at least they try to speak the English language more. They dare to face and work with the foreigner even though they cannot speak English. Moreover, the volunteers have changed the local community. They used to stay lively and trustily with the foreigner. Local people have a chance to learn, accept, and adopt the ways of life with the new cultures from the volunteers who are like an intercultural ambassador. In 2019, the project needs the volunteers, who are the most important of the part, to continue for developing the potential of a local community that the last volunteers did, to help children in school, and local community still practice the English language, to learn your own language, and to make them learn more about the different culture. On the other hand, the volunteers also get the opportunity to know local food, local transportation, local occupation and local culture with living in local habitation in the community. We believe that understanding several cultures can make the world be peaceful.
Volunteers are expected to work as English teachers in the primary school. They can prepare their lesson by themselves, but the teacher at the school can give the advice (do not expect this point too much even the teachers are also shy to speak out). Creative teaching English – Creative teaching is important to recognize; teaching certificate does not need for specific quality of volunteer but creative is the one of yours. Aims of creative teaching are giving the chance for students in the school or the place nearby to have the opportunity to communicate with different language, touch difference culture, and believing. Teaching Activity is that the volunteer would do the activities base on intercultural and language with the games, songs, storytellings, and dancings. Also, it should focus on communication; listening and speaking.
