What to Expect?

Truusje joined our 2015 Volunteer Programme as an English language teacher, based at the Pyongyang Tourism College.
Speaking on her experience, Truusje said:

“The programme was an incredibly interesting experience. I got to teach some lovely students. They were so keen and teaching them was a lot of fun. I was sad to say goodbye to them. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.”

Tamara joined our 2015 Volunteer Programme and taught Tourism Marketing at the Pyongyang Tourism College.
Speaking on her experience, Tamara said:

“Teaching Tourism Marketing at Pyongyang Tourism College was an unexpectedly rewarding experience. My students (teachers of the College) were bright, very motivated to learn and willing to actively discuss our topics in class, so it was a real pleasure teaching them. Before the course I wasn’t sure what to expect but I had an almost complete freedom in designing my classes, so I could share the latest academic knowledge combined with lots of practical examples. Altogether I felt that my classes could effectively contribute to tourism development in the DPRK and it’s a great feeling.”


The Pyongyang Tourism College 평양관광대학 was originally known as the “Tour Guide & Interpreter School”, founded on 5th February 1987, but later changed its name in both 2002 and 2014. Many Juche Travel Services tourists may meet the alumni of the PTC as they are often the excellent tour guides who accompany our tours. The school boasts 120 professors and researchers and 700 students (both full and part time).
