Driving development through English teaching.
Conversations With Foreigners is a popular non-profit English language center in Phnom Penh providing affordable English classes to Khmer students from all walks of life.
International volunteers teach conversational English in a fun and informal setting through a student-centric and activity-based style. Profits from student fees go to the Cambodian Rural Development Team, our main partner, to provide a sustainable source of core funding for their development projects, as well as to 1001fontaines, to provide clean drinking water to school children and their families in rural areas.
We are seeking volunteer teachers for our upcoming semester beginning 1st March 2017, as well as for future semesters beginning in June and September 2017.
Teachers teach up to 5 hours per day, Monday to Friday, for the 12 weeks. Classes focus on conversational speaking skills in a fun and informal setting. They follow our unique localized curriculum designed to address the realities of Cambodian life.
Delve into the complexities of Cambodian life through a cultural exchange with your students. Teach them relevant and useful English through localized topics. Give them a voice so they can build their confidence in English and share with you their pride of their country.
We offer newly qualified ESL teachers an opportunity to test the waters abroad, gaining approximately 200 hours classroom experience over 12 weeks; as well as on-going teaching training sessions, observations, one-on-one feedback, peer reviews, and drop-in support from our experienced Education Services Manager.
We also provide a dedicated in-country support team, optional accommodation and meals package, Khmer language lessons, cooking classes, and a range of organized social activities.

So eager volunteers come and spend $725 for 12 weeks, meals included (a fair price probably) and work for nothing.
Is is disgracefully suspicious to make the assumption that someone, foreign or Cambodian (or both, working as a team) is/are doing quite well out of this?
About 2 years ago, a University (nameless) in a (nameless) Cambodian city put out flyers asking for volunteers to come and teach English conversation classes;
those who did a full 20 hours were to be rewarded with a certificate recording their unswerving devotion to duty, possibly in a gilt or plastic-gilt frame.
Can I get someone to come and clean my house on the same basis?

They openly admit as much."

It doesn't smell fishy to me since requirements and conditions are clearly spelled out. I've read a.lot worse. I'm not defending it nor do I have any desire to teach there or anywhere else. My big gripe is that if any not for profit organization wants a qualified teacher without pay they should supply all meals and free housing. Otherwise they are likely to get"near native speakers" whatever the fuck that could mean.
