    My girlfriend and I spent an hour chatting away to the very eager Lao students. Was very rewarding and interesting learning more about their way of life! Felt good to help a little so I would definitely recommended stopping by!

    This is a wonderful place. I enjoyed spending time with the young people and helping them practice their English and Chinese. I derived immense satisfaction knowing that I was able to help them. It was the best time spent ever.
