Enjoyable and Rewarding Volunteer Experience in Kunming


The above video was made by Leon Ablon,  who’s made 7 trips to China with Global Volunteers with his wife Dixie since 2007. They are coming again to Kunming in the summer this year, along with several other volunteers who have fell in love with the city and people after their first time experience.

In Kunming, Global Volunteers helps train Chinese teachers of English in a “staff development” program run by Kunming University – working with the same group of teachers for the full 2 weeks.  The teachers come from elementary, middle and high schools in Kunming and the surrounding prefectures. They range from young new teachers to experienced teachers who have taught for many years. For many of these teachers, the conversations they have with us are their first extended experience with native speakers of English. Our volunteers lead them in conversations as they improve their pronunciation, and broaden their repertoire of English language games and activities to apply in their own classrooms.
