Feel this magic...
The sessions are taken on an informal environment, where learning the basics of the language is as important as gaining insight into the richness of the culture. Because the experience & culture exchange is a key part of the experience we try to create groups as diverse as possible.
There are two different levels of SPEAK courses: "Basic" and "Conversational". In the course Conversational the SPEAK Buddy only speaks in the languange he/she is teaching while in the course Basic the SPEAK Buddy might use other languages to help participants learning the basics.
Even the least experienced person can teach: you can count with the support from the SPEAK team, but your personal touch and personality make the difference, feel free to add what you think will make the course more fun and dynamic.
