So this was our first experience with Worldpackers and also with travelling on our own and we absolutely loved it. Ovick and his family were very welcoming and we quickly felt like home. At the school everyone was really nice, they involved us a lot and the classes were fun. There was always a positive atmosphere which was really nice to work in.
Outside of school Ovick took us to many places and helped us arrange our own little trips. All in all it was an amazing experience that we will cherish for the rest of our life and we can recommend it to everyone who is thinking about going there.

I had the most incredible time with Ovick and his family. They were so welcoming and friendly, always chatty, helpful and hugely fun to be around. I’m so sad to be leaving and will miss everyone hugely, especially their 2 wonderful children!

Working with Ovick at the school was amazing. Working with children and teenagers to improve their English and running my own classes. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful, it’s every volunteers’ dream placement.

Ovick also took me to temples, pools, markets, events and even a wedding! Extended my stay by a week and plan on returning next year!

I absolutely loved my stay with Ovick and his family! They welcomed me into their home and were eager to share the local culture and take me on adventures! I joined this programme to gain teaching experience and I had so much fun assisting in the classes and was even given the opportunity to lead my own class which is exactly what I was looking for. The school is for students looking to gain extra English lessons outside of their regular school or work and the classes are very small, this I loved because the classes were more interactive and enjoyable for everyone
