Housing & Communication
During the four-week training program, housing will be provided to LanguageCorps TESOL Plus, Flagship, and Volunteer Program participants. Accommodations are a private room in a local hotel or guest house, and all rooms have air-conditioning and western style bathrooms. Accommodations begin the Saturday before your program start date and conclude the morning after the final class. Additional days can be arranged before/after your course for an extra fee.
For Flagship Program participants, if necessary, housing will be provided for an additional week following training, after which time you should have secured a job, and you will be responsible for paying for your housing. If you have not secured a job in the primary focus area by this time, and are seriously pursuing all job leads, housing may be continued at the Corps Advocate's discretion.
Once your job assignment is secured, the Corps Advocate and hiring school will assist you in locating an apartment nearby the hiring school. Typically, apartments are small, but most are comfortable, stylish, and have air conditioning and Western appliances. Often, a one month security deposit and the first month's rent are required at the time of rental.
Housing is sometimes provided by the hiring school, though generally Teachers prefer to find their own housing. School accommodations are typically Cambodian, and rarely meet the standard Westerners are used to.
An international cell phone will be available to all program participants (a $75 fee for lost phones). LanguageCorps Flagship participants are provided with a cell phone for the duration of their time in Cambodia, including a SIM chip for local and international calling, and initial pre-paid phone minutes.
You will be given access to the Internet during training at the training center. Most of our hiring Schools have internet access available to teachers during school hours. Public internet cafes are also available at a very reasonable rate.
