This project will be based at a Buddhist Monastery where young monks are preparing to propagate Buddhism throughout the world for which they need to learn English. The main goal is to improve the proficiency of spoken and written English among them. You will spend most of your time teaching monks to read and write in English.

This program was primarily started to improve the English speaking skills of the Buddhist monks in local temples. This project is almost 2 years old. The project was started with the intention of increasing proficiency in written and spoken English among Buddhist monks. Over time, we have noticed a vast improvement in the communication skills of the monks. The monks also really enjoy being a part of the program.
