What’s the teaching style of the classes?
Our volunteers aim to keep the classes as fun as possible. The classes are student centred, with lots of games and interaction, giving you the chance to practice the language, improve your skills and make new friends.
Who can attend classes and our events?
Anyone who is interested in learning a new language!
What will I learn?
Our classes are designed for students to obtain a conversational level of the given language in the shortest time possible. You will learn some grammar, but the lessons are focused on improving vocabulary and communication skills.The vocabulary taught is aimed at chatty students and travellers, starting with simple phrases like “what’s your name?” and “where are you from”, and then moving on to more complex stuff like telling people about your family, friends, job, pets, interests, night life etc. In the classes you will learn how to tell stories and jokes in the language you are learning.
How does Language4Water work?
Language4Water is a student-volunteer run society/project where we train non-professional native or bilingual speakers to teach their own languages. Like other 4Water projects, 100% of our profits are donated to WaterAid. Currently, we are focusing our resources on a region in Rwanda and plan to raise a further 100,000€ for these communities over the next 2 years. Would you like to be a part of it? Then sign up for a course or contact us for volunteering opportunities!
What level is right for me?
We have different levels for most of the languages we offer. If you sign up to a language, you can always change level at no extra cost. However, it's useful for you to pick the closest level to your abilities when signing up: • Beginners (level 1): For first time-learners or people who have very little or no experience in the language. • Improvers (level 2): For people who have a conversational level and are familiar with forming sentences. An example might be someone post GCSE or someone with a higher. • Intermediate (level 3): For people with substantial experience, like those after A-level or advanced highers, perhaps with some travelling experience in the countries too. We would expect you to know most of the tenses. • Advanced (level 4): This level is suited for people who already have a good command of the language, especially at speaking. Grammar rules will be revised briefly, only if the students require it. We will mainly focus on improving fluency and expanding vocabulary.
