BUDDHIST CULTURAL TRADITIONS
Buddhist Cultural Traditions project seeks to enlighten you about
Buddhism and its effect on the Thai people. It will provide a path to
understanding the Buddhist philosophy, ethics and practice. By placing
you with a Thai host you have the opportunity to see, first hand, the
impact of the Buddhist religion on the family. Secondly, by teaching at
a local school you
observe the role of Buddhism in the schools. Lastly, by spending time
at a local Wat you have the opportunity to
teach English to novice monks. During your time at the Wat ample opportunity will be available for you to
have discussions with the Abbot and monks about Buddhism. Additionally,
you can discuss meditation with the monks and be mentored in the
process of learning how to meditate. Abbots Supachai
and Bart, just a few of the monks, are fluent in English and are
pleased to teach you or to engage you in a dialogue about religion or
just about any subject.

Help us help
empower students and teachers with knowledge through classroom
education or lecture. We provide you with lesson plans for the
presentation. Our participants teach English, in a Thai classroom, along side a Thai teacher at a local school,
orphanage or college. TSC team members lead classes in conversational
English. We emphasize vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension,
grammar, speaking, reading, and listening. We augment this by adding
the fun of games and songs to our teaching. Usually, you will teach in
the classroom with your host or counter part.
They will help you prepare for the task of teaching and assist in
translation, if necessary. In addition to the English teaching we ask
you to teach other subjects of which you may be knowledgeable. Team TSC
members may teach other subjects such as computers, geography,
environment, math, or sports.
