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

Upcoming Semester: September 2015

September – December is a great time to be in Cambodia, with regular wet season rains to push the temperature down the countryside is green with endless fields of rice.

Join us in September!

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.

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.
