What? Travel the world for free? 環遊世界不是夢!什麼?還不用錢?!

常常有人把環遊世界當作是努力賺錢,財富自由時對自己的犒賞。
但去旅遊真的需要很多錢嗎? 什麼時候去最好?

For many people, traveling the world is just a dream. And for others, it’s a motivation to work hard then maybe it’s an option after retirement or when you win the lottery. But do you really need a lot of money to see the world and when it’s the best time to go?

環遊世界不是夢!什麼?還不用錢?!
什麼?還可以與許多國際時事、語言和文化接軌,多元化學習!
還有,如果你有遠大的抱負,想提升能夠帶給世界正面的影響力,這項國際志工可以推你一把!

Traveling around the world doesn’t have to cost a penny. No, it is not a dream! You even get to catch up with the world’s hottest topics in a multilingual and multicultural environment. If you have an ambition to change the world, this international volunteer program can surely give you a lift!

有興趣嗎?只要具備好其中二個語言能力:中文、英文、日文、西文 (英中/ 英日/ 西日),能會英中日就更好了!除了旅程需要翻譯,也徵求教英文和西文的老師。

Are you interested?
To be a volunteer interpreter, all you need is proficiency in two of the following languages:
Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish. If you can speak more than two, even better!

P.S. we call the interpreters “Communication Coordinator, CC”, because it can go beyond interpreting and enter the domain of customer service.

English and Spanish, this language pair is not needed at the moment as currently, the main audience is from Asia.

Besides interpreter, Peace Boat is also looking for language teachers for English and Spanish. For this, you don’t have to know Japanese nor Chinese as your classes will be assisted by interpreters (CCs).

這樣一趟近四個月不花錢旅行,當翻譯,行萬里路讀萬卷書,省約50萬台幣。從一開始對同步口譯很不安,過一個月左右覺得自己其實也可以勝任,不過這真的是分秒必爭,腎上腺素亢奮的工作,到後來更進一步發展出自己風格。出遊之外,也參加了在船上的很多各式各樣的講座,例如:

  • 蒙特梭利教育
  • 新加坡移民勞工問題
  • 散居世界各地但嚮往回歸的民族
  • 中國一帶一路政策
  • 廢除核武器條約
  • 海洋塑膠汙染
  • 歐洲難民問題…

還有學習工作坊:日語、西語、義大利語、希臘語、荷語等等多種語言。還有了解同性戀和聯合國永續發展目標的相關工作坊,甚至是運動會、文化派對等…
收穫良多而且真的都不用錢!

This 4-month trip saved me more than 16,000 USD/ 14.500 EUR and got myself familiarized with interpreting. It was such a high adrenaline job fighting for every second to produce structured and meaningful sentences in the target language on the spot! Apart from sightseeing with the group, I also got to attend activities and create my own events. I participated in many onboard lectures ranging from Environmental protection in Maldives, Montessori education, diaspora of the African community, migrant workers in Singapore, abolishment of nuclear weapons, to China’s One Road One Belt policy. There were also workshops and lots of social activities like learning Japanese and Spanish, SDGs, sports tournaments, various dance lessons like Irish, traditional Japanese and Salsa, etc. Lots to gain with zero investment!

有以下的疑問嗎? Maybe you have doubts…

  • 不確定自己適不適合? Not sure if it’s something for you?
  • 自己語言能力有到做翻譯/ 教學的程度? Not sure if your language level can reach the level of translator and interpreter?
  • 目前有工作走不開,沒辦法請長假? Currently occupied with work, not possible to get an extended leave?
  • 擔心自身健康狀況無法在船上住上幾個月? Does your health condition permit you to live on the boat for months?

不用怕,我一步步教你,從了解自己、機構情報、職位申請、面試、筆試到實務訓練…如果這個機會不適合你,沒關係,還有其他的管道。歡迎詢問!
If you have questions, let me now! I am happy walk you through the process from application to induction. And even if this program is not for you and you might want to explore other volunteering / studying/ internship opportunities abroad, feel free to contact me by message!
