Local Church ESL Coordinators


Apr 27, 2018    2 Year Appointment


Job Description

Throughout Thailand in both the large urban centres and small rural villages, the Thai church desires to teach ESL as a way to build relationship between the community and local churches. With the implementation of the ASEAN Charter in 2015 (Association of South East Asian Nations), the government of Thailand is moving the English language to the forefront as the language of trade and commerce. Thais therefore see the need to acquire language and seek out native English speakers to be involved with English activities in the Church and in the community. The Thai church desires to capitalize on this desire for English by having native English speakers work in conjunction with the local church to build a bridge to the community via ESL. Duties/Responsibilities: - Work alongside local Thai churches to provide English classes to the community - Assist local church leadership with ESL and other outreach/community activities - Opportunities may exist to partner with a local school in addition to the church
