The Exchange

Since we started hosting volunteers, local people and youth in our community are very eager to practice and try to talk to our volunteers when they walk in the street. We took it as advantage for them to practice and learn new languages (Basic language is English), even if they are eager to learn any other foreign language. We opened evening class for them to learn and practice languages. All volunteers interested in joining them are welcome!
