Volunteering is also a linguistic experience !

It is necessary to speak at least a little bit of English to go to an international workcamp, as English is the language used by the volunteers.
In fact, although English is generally the common language in the workcamp, speaking the local language or knowing a few basics will definitely help you better appreciate the culture and the local population.

Some of our partners offer the opportunity to learn local languages before or after your international workcamp. By working directly with language schools, our partners eliminate the profit margins of intermediaries. In general, prices charged vary from 150 to 400 Euro for 2 weeks depending on the country and on housing.
