In continuation of last months ‘Top Tips for Volunteers’, here follows our second installment:

  • Practice your language skills
  • Why not make the most of the opportunity to pick up a new and invaluable life skill – a second language? Even if you only know a few key phrases, do not hold back! The local people will appreciate your efforts and may even teach you some more.

  • Be willing to learn
