Language and volunteering

In most of the service activities we offer, the ability to communicate in the local language is essential. In case you could feel a bit limited by your Spanish, we can provide a combined stay, where you will receive 3 hours of Spanish 5 times a week, for 4 weeks, for a total of 60 hours.

The classes will focus on direct communication skills and will thus consist in conversation, grammar and/or literature, according to the students’ needs. As far as volunteering is concerned, please refer to our Volunteer page (button below) to select the volunteering options we offer.
