SPEAK - Teach your language online :)
With the COVID-19 outbreak reaching a pandemic stage, vulnerable groups are now more isolated than ever and facing a period of uncertainty and anxiety alone. For that reason, SPEAK will continue its mission of promoting inclusion and belonging, and will be moving all its language groups online until the end of May.
Language groups will be free for everyone and will work via video conference. Those who want to support the project can contribute on a “pay what you want model” to make sure SPEAK continues to reach community members who can benefit from the project but cannot afford it.
The online language groups will consist of 10 daily 90-minute sessions (Monday to Friday), for two weeks, with two levels available: Basic and Conversational. Groups will be led by buddies from all over the world that are fluent in the languages they are sharing, and will welcome between four and seven participants.
Everyone can apply to share their language and culture, or to learn a new one.
SPEAK is a social start-up aiming to connect refugees, migrants and locals through :
- language courses
- culture exchanges events
We are currently looking for Dutch buddies willing to share their culture to others in an informal and fun environment through teaching.
Feel free also to learn one of the languages we have available :)
If you are interested in it and want to know more about SPEAK, please do not hesitate to reach me out.
SPEAK - SHARE YOUR WORLD
Things like cultural incomprehension, stereotypes, language barrier and ignorance lead to xenophobia, unemployment, criminality and many others. SPEAK aims at solving this social exclusion issue.
SPEAK fulfils the social mission of integrating citizens through the value of their diversity. It's cultural and language exchange programme where anyone can apply as a student and/or a volunteer teacher allowing people from different cultures to meet, learn and share knowledge.
SPEAK, as a whole, is a social business with a clear social mission and priorities. Its commercial offer aims only at ensuring financial sustainability.
