“We had a wonderful experience working at Wat Prok for Maryknoll. We were welcomed and felt immediately at ease right from the beginning. We met many diverse and interesting people with lots to say, learned about the children, their lives, the culture and about the temple itself. Teaching English as a second language can definitely be a challenge, especially with the language barrier. It did take us some time to get used to the language barrier. But once we figured out our teaching methods and more importantly what works better for the children and their individual needs, we felt much more at ease and definitely had lots of fun with the kids. It was a wonderful experience to say the least, and would highly recommend it to anyone.”
 
We would like to thank you for the amazing opportunity.
