Travel to Mongolia on a Budget
World Explorers is the the ideal program for adventure travelers, a gap year or traveling on a budget. You receive a private room and three daily meals in exchange of teaching English for 15 hours weekly to your host family.
The rest of the time is yours to explore as you wish!
How would you like to live with a host family in Mongolia for a couple of months? Yes, Mongolia! The origin of the famed Mongol Empire which was ruled by emperor Genghis Khan and dominated much of Eurasia at the height of its power. Today, Mongolia features a unique intersection of ancient and modern cultural traditions. While the cities are quite developed with modern infrastructure, the countryside is very rural and the locals still live in yurts. Home to giant vultures, camels and wild horses, Mongolia is probably the most exotic country World Explorers has to offer.
CHI works with its trusted partner in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia to find and to screen the best host families possible for you to live with as an active member of the family. Most placements aren’t far from Ulaanbaatar’s city center, so it will be easy to get around on your own. Our participants are usually able to help out at our Mongolian partner agency’s office leading an English Speaking Club which allows for extra teaching experience and opportunities to make new friends! Past travelers also had the opportunity to visit the vast Mongolian countryside and spend the night in a yurt. Mongolians are eager to share their traditional culture, ancient traditions and exotic cuisine with foreigners.
The country’s official language is Mongolian, but many people speak Russian as well since Russia sits directly to the north. English is also widely spoken, but since Mongolians rarely have the chance to converse with a native English speaker, they will be really excited to meet and speak with you.
