EHN Nepal requires English teachers to help improve the level of English taught in Ukhubari School a mountain side village in Nepal. This placement is new to EHN and therefor requires someone who is happy to live in a rural Nepali home stay that has limited English speakers and basic amenities. The School itself is very well run considering the location and lack of funds which is why EHN wants to help them improve their level of teaching. We would prefer people who can commit to one month or more but will consider two week placements. You will be required to assess the teaching methods of the school and where ever possible offer advice and assistance to the existing teachers to improve their teaching techniques. You will also take classes of your own in order to demonstrate better methods of teaching English plus of course help the children learn. The school is perched on the side of one of the many valley walls of Nepal and offers some great views of this wonderful country.
The home stay will be in a traditional mud and brick Nepali home with rice and dal served twice a day as your main meals, this is called Dal Bhat. Accompanying your dal bhat will be a variation of curried potato, fried greens similar to spinach with Achar which is Nepali pickle and is normally both spicy and sour in taste. As for sleeping you will have a room in the house with a basic bed and outdoor toilet, when you need to shower you use a bucket and tap near the house to wash. This is a very simple way of life with nearly everything you eat being grown on or in the land next to your homes stay. Milk will come from either the cow or buffalo kept under the house and if you’re lucky enough to be visiting during a major festival the meat will come from the goats.
