Program Details


Volunteer teaching in Mongolia is an ideal way to help at some of the most poorly resourced schools in the capital of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar. The Mongolian government plans to increase its economic trade with neighboring countries to improve high unemployment levels after years of slow economic growth and debt. With this in mind, the hard-pressed schools desperately need native English speakers to help give the children a better chance to move the country forward.

Aim & Objective

To help improving English proficiency of students in general. Until 1990, students used to study Russian only as a second language. Today, Mongolians have the option to study other languages as well. The quality of English language teaching, however, needs improvement. 

Program Description

Whether you want to volunteer in Mongolia as a teacher during your gap year, career break or during a volunteer vacation, you will have an important role to play in one of the schools and language institutes in which we work. The impact you have on your students will be obvious, but you will also be part of a much larger network of international volunteers, which is making a positive and ongoing contribution to the wider community.

Teaching English in Mongolia is very challenging, but it is also very rewarding. Most of the Mongolia Volunteer teaching projects are located in of the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar. Students in public school are basic learners: boys and girls (from ages 8-16), in class sizes of about 15-20. Also, volunteers can teach English in a variety of non-profit schools, which aim at helping destitute citizens.

A volunteer usually teaches three to four hours a day, for five days a week. If you have other skills, like knowledge of computers or drawing, you can teach these along with English as well. Most of the time, you will be provided with a fixed-curriculum English book to help you teach, and you will be requested by school authorities to develop your own projects that aid students in learning English. Teaching English in Mongolia project not only benefits students at our projects area, but you will also get tests of Mongolian culture and people through teaching.

Country Info

Rugged Mongolia is an adventure destination where travellers can experience nomadic culture and vast untouched landscapes. Mongolians are fully aware of the unique beauty of their country. Ask locals and they will probably start gushing about the spectacular countryside vast steppes rugged mountains clear lakes and abundant wildlife and livestock. Some areas are so remote you could drive a full day and see almost no signs of human habitation. It’s this true wilderness experience that many people find so appealing. City residents from Ulaanbaatar have also started to discover their own country and camping is now popular among urban locals. Protected areas cover almost a fifth of the country and the government is looking to increase that figure.
