  • Loved talking to the sweet kids at the Big Brother Mouse. They could share a lot of interesting information about Laos as well, so it was a good learning experience for me too. If I had more days available I’d go back again.
  • Highly, highly recommend volunteering an hour or 2 (or more!) of your time here while you’re in Luang Prabang. It’s such a simple way to give back and it means so much to the kids. They’re not taught much English in school and they’ll attend these sessions as their only way to practice English. Sometimes it may just be 1 on 1 with a local or you may have 3 or 4. It’s incredibly fulfilling and will make you want to never leave. Super casual so show up when you can and stay for as long as you can. Please go!
  • !!! Really nice experience with young Lao learning english with you. I was so happy to discover this location.
  • Great opportunity to meet locals and students to teach english
  • An amazing couple of hours spent with local, young adults. Super friendly, you just turn up, sit down and start talking. Don't talk too quickly but feel free to help correct pronunciation. On my first evening we did general conversation, when I went back the second day we played some games like I spy, did some reading and writing... Just being there speaking English is a big help and so rewarding.
