Day 1

Arrival at Phnom Penh airport. Arrivals between 6am & 8pm will have transfers to the Mekong Star hotel in Phnom Penh. A meal will be provided, and you’ll be able to relax after your journey and get to know your fellow interns, or head off exploring this vibrant city!

Days 2-3

2 day orientation at your hotel. This is an invaluable chance to learn all there is to know about the internship and your role as an assistant teacher. You’ll also be brought up to speed on the fascinating culture, customs and history of Cambodia and be given some tips for great places to explore on your days off. Lunch will be provided on both days.

Days 4-49

Transfer to your school, where you’ll be teaching and living for the next 7 weeks.
You’ll be teaching at an American Bridge International private school, with students aged 3 to 16. Resources at the school are reasonable, and there’s WiFi in the main building available for you to use. Your working hours will be 7.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday, with some opportunity for evening classes with older students (aged 16 to 25+). In Cambodia, there’s a real lack of experienced English teachers, so many children learn the language by rote (repetition) and the school hopes that you, as interns, will bring improvements through engaging TEFL-style teaching. It’s therefore really important that conversation and interactivity are common learning tools used regularly by interns. Your accommodation will be shared with at least one other person, and will most likely be a converted room in the school complex. Weekends will be totally free, for you to spend exploring the local area, or just relaxing- it’s totally up to you!

Day 50
At the end of your placement, you’ll be transferred back to Phnom Penh for another meal and night’s winding-down time at the Mekong Star.

Day 51-55
Transfer to Sihanoukville, where you’ll be staying in the Golden Sands hotel, just a few minutes away from one of ‘the most beautiful bays in the world’. There’ll be plenty of opportunity for exploring the many beautiful beaches in the area, as well as hitting up the local shops and beach bars for a bit of refreshment. For the more active among us, there are also plenty of sights and attractions to see. A final farewell meal will be provided.

Day 56
Back to Phnom Penh for a final night at the Mekong Star, and get ready for an emotional day as you bid goodbye for now to your fellow interns! Breakfast will be provided.

Day 57
There’ll be help and advice on hand for those wanting to continue their travels in Cambodia and elsewhere!
