Hey everyone! Here's a message about being a Language Friend at ABF!



Do you like meeting new people?

Would you like to help adult students practise their English?

At ABF Vux, a college for further education, there are many adult students who want to practice using the language they are studying. Many students are also interested in getting to know people from other countries. People like you. So please join our successful and rewarded language project and become a language friend during your stay in Sweden.

We're looking for foreign students like you with a native or near native proficiency in English and who enjoy speaking English. We would like you to come to our English courses and help the students practise their English.

You wouldn't teach; the teacher does that. What we'd like you to do is to help and encourage the students in the classroom. In return, you'll get a lunch voucher every time you help out and a certificate of completion at the end of the term. And of course, it's also great fun and rewarding for you. you'll make new friends among the students and teachers who really appreciate your help.

Don't hesitate to contact us if this sounds interesting. you can always try it out once before you decide if you want to join the project or not.
