  • 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.
  • For two hours twice a day, every day, for the price of simply speaking in English, I get to hear about the lives, interests and goals of locals ranging from young children to university students, both laypeople and novice monks. If you are looking for a more authentic experience beyond visiting the major sites in the area, eating at the best restaurants and buying things that Luang Prabang is known for, spend a couple of hours at Big Brother Mouse; it might just be your most cherished thing when you leave.
  • We read to some kids, and then had a discussion with university students speaking English - a rewarding and painless couple of hours.
  • A foundation dedicated to helping students from poor backgrounds learn to read.
