The Experience

Hi, my name is Ida. I was a teacher at a formal school until 6 years ago. I resigned to help my husband organize his institution, a learning centre (non profit organization). My husband built it 16 years ago. The institution concerns community based education. We are located in Sidoarjo, a small city in East Java. Our Institution has 3 general focuses: English improvement, Chinese improvement and school subjects improvement program.

Super recommended, Ida and Roni are charming, as are all the people around them. They were very attentive to making sure I felt good and rested. I was surrounded by really kind and wonderful people. The English classes are very fun and easy for people to learn. faster, you can share free time visiting the market, and then eating together, a truly immersive and unforgettable experience to get to know Indonesian culture, thank you very much, I hope you can visit Spain one day

Ida and Roni are excellent hosts. I got to meet so many wonderful kids during my stay. I am missing them so much already. The place was tough to adjust to for me, due to being a light sleeper and new to travel, but they were very kind, empathetic and helpful.

If you want to fully immerse yourself in the local culture, this is the perfect place for you! You will find amazing people with a good heart, welcoming, kind and friendly. Ida prepared for me all the typical Indonesian dishes possible (vegetarian). Also she bought a lot of fruit and sweet food because she knew I loved it:) you will leave the place with the feeling of having a second family there. The students are eager to learn more about your culture and language knowledge!

I have absolutely loved my time volunteering here. The host and the whole family are amazing. They are very welcoming, friendly, generous, caring and kind. I couldn't sing their praises enough. They will help immerse you into the local culture by helping you try all the Indonesia food, taking you to events, talking to you about Indonesia and their lives and just generally showing you around. The students you will teach are very respectful and are keen to learn. The teaching is very relaxed and there's no pressure put on you.

Hi Sian. Thanks for your time and dedication during your stay here. Your English accent made the students learn more about English. It was really helpful with your native accent. Keep in touch. Have a nice travel
