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.
Volunteers who decided to work in a Quechua speaking community will be offered our 4-week Beginner’s Quechua course, previous to starting the volunteering program. Optionally, you can also select our volunteer and language program that will provide language instruction throughout your period of volunteering
