The Experience

Welcome to our school! A supplementary school mainly focused on teaching English. Approx. 200 students aged 6-18 all go to a traditional public school, and then come to us for English education in addition. Our rates are cheap..  around $50 per student per year, and we scholarship many families as well. We are 3 teachers looking for 1 or 2 more volunteers to get the students excited about the world outside their village.

A truly amazing experience. We ended up extending our stay at the the school and had such a great time! The kids are amazing and willing to learn, which made everything so easy. Also, the food was great (vegetarian is possible) and the accommodation was nice. We stayed in a private room in the the school. We 100% recommend the the school 💪

This experience exceeded our expectations. I have no words to describe all the love we have received from the students and the family hosting us since the first day. The students are the most amazing students, they love to be there, they are fans of the the school, they love to learn and they love to have new teachers. They are curious and playful and sweet no matter the age. The students are from 6 years old to 17 and they all are respectful and make you want to teach them. The is close to the most amazing rice fields landscapes! It's so hard for us to say goodbye.

I second the kudos to the host, his family, the the school and its students, and I am very grateful for everything they did for me. Of equal importance to me is the the school's social impact on Cambodia's young generations. While most Khmer schools use obsolete learning techniques, like memorization and repetition without comprehension, the teachers in GVS encourage students to leverage their talent and creativity. The students feel special without any sense of entitlement, and treat their teachers and peers with genuine respect. They learn to fight for their lives with their own lives!

I had an amazing experience at the the school. I had my own room, shower and toilet facilities and 3 meals per day were prepared for me by Chiva and his family. Always different each day. I had never taught English before so i sat in on Kyle and Chivas lessons for a couple of days before we planned out a schedule for the week with me included. The children are honestly some of the most amazing children i have ever met and the whole place is like 1 huge family. They are so clever, eager to learn and really interested in getting to you know. I will miss being at GVS!
