What will I be doing?

  • You will be running an online language session of your choice.
  • Sessions are held 5 times a week (Monday to Friday), for 2 weeks. Each session is 90 minutes long.

What impact will this have?

  • At SPEAK we bring together newcomers and locals living in the same city through community-led language groups and cultural exchange events. Through these experiences participants learn from each other, explore common interests and make new friends, breaking down barriers and tackling prejudice in their cities along the way.
  • SPEAK contributes to inclusive cities where everyone feels at home and where diversity is championed.
  • You will get to hang out with people from all over the world, exchanging knowledge and experiences with them, while at the same time having a positive impact in someone's life!.
