Teach English Location: Dharamsala Project Duration: 2 to 12 weeks

English teaching volunteers in India work in partner institutions and on independent projects in Dharamsala. Against the backdrop of the Himalayan mountains students and volunteers are inspired to aim high and reach their goals.

Fluent English speakers inspire students to improve their English skills. You teaching them will develop interest in them to better their English speaking. To provide private tuition to students with financial problems, volunteers work in local schools at primary and secondary level.

Schools in villages have less number of students who are always excited to learn. The children appreciate class time with fluent English speakers which makes them want to improve their English skills even more.

Volunteers teaching English need not have an in-depth knowledge of English grammar. All you have to do is motivate them to improve and practice their English skills.

For volunteers who hold interest in teaching, this is an opportunity to use your skills in a totally new and different environment. For volunteers with no experience in teaching, they will get to enjoy and learn a lot working with the children of Dharamsala.

For your help, study materials for English teaching are provided at the volunteer house, or you can also bring your own resources.


"I highly recommend iSpiice to anyone wanting an experience with volunteering in India. I was lucky enough to stay with iSpiice and it was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The staff are so friendly and caring and made the experience even more enjoyable. I have become good friends with them allmany of the volunteers I stayed with.

I was very pleased with the low cost of the program and how well I was looked after. Not only is iSpiice an amazing way to volunteer, but it also gives amazing opportunities to explore the rest of India with many extra tours. ISpiice is an amazing opportunity to volunteer and experience India while at the same time having a really enjoyable and memorable experience. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to experience India in such a special way. I will never forget my time spent with the team, and I can’t wait to go back and to do all over again."
