Teach English - Drive Development


Volunteer in Cambodia provides voluntary English teaching placement with Conversations With Foreigners, with popular English language centers in Phnom Penh and rural Kratie, Cambodia.

No fee volunteers provide affordable English language lessons to Khmer students for 12 weeks, teaching up to 5 hours per day, Monday to Friday. The unique curriculum is designed to empower students to use English as a real life communication tool in their own lives, and express their own culture.

Profits from student fees are used to fund development projects in rural cambodia by our partners, CRDT

Our program is designed to offer a completely unique cultural experience, while still contributing in a concrete way to Cambodian development.

Each group lasts a whole semester of teaching at CWF - 3 months, and each semester offers unique cultural experiences - from wedding season in our December - March group, Khmer New Year festivities during our March - June group. Later in the year, the wet season brings incredible natural events such as the reversal of flow of the Tonlé Sap River, and the end of the wet season is marked by Bon Om Teuk - Water Festival.

Upcoming Start Date: 2nd December

Cambodia is said to have 2 seasons: the wet and the dry. Both live up to their name in terms of weather, but a more accurate description of the seasons might be “The Wet Season and The Wedding Season”. As monsoon rains abate in November, Khmer brides and grooms take the plunge with elaborate traditional 3 day ceremonies beneath colourful tents that seem to spring-up outside bride’s houses the very moment the rains end. The December-March period is also the busiest time in the tourist calendar, with the weather being more suitable for those not used to 35°C days at 99% humidity! Late December and January nights become cool (down to a chilly 23°C!), and rain is scarce for much of the season, making it an opportune time to witness a crisp, clear sun rise over Angkor Wat, and to travel to the far reaches of the country which are literally waterlogged throughout the wet season.

Join us in December!

The Code


CWF has joined The Code, helping to end commercial sexual exploitation of children. We've always strongly believed in the rights of children to be protected from all forms of abuse. Now we are working to implement The Code, and working with partners in Cambodia and abroad to bring about a safer world for vulnerable children.
