Appeal for English Lessons for the Monks

The temple is fortunate to have Buddhist monks in residence

The monks are experts in the practice and teaching of meditation

Our meditation teacher lp Ak, and lp Liu and lp Chalong must all pass an IELTS English language exam at level 5.5 for their UK visas to be extended, otherwise they will have to leave

The exam is by no means easy, and many native English speakers would probably struggle to pass

We have procured the services of a local qualified private teacher with many years experience of getting students through this IELTS exam. The private teacher costs £25.00 per lesson and the IELTS exam costs £160.00 to sit, and is not easy to pass first time. There is also good online training that supports the monks but this also has a cost

Please help us retain the monks at the temple by donating towards the cost of them passing their IELTS exams

We have a collection at the meditation class on Wednesday evenings, at other times please speak to Warren, Martin or lp Ak
