Benefits of volunteering
Language Beyond Borders is an impressive display of humanity, passion, teamwork and a clear demonstration of the tangible, positive change that can be achieved when a group of people work together for a cause.
Volunteering with Language Beyond Borders has been a wonderful experience which has given me a greater insight and understanding of the challenges faced by refugees as well as a unique opportunity to discover Syrian culture. I have been teaching English to a fantastic student who I would not have got to know otherwise. Discovering foreign cultures gives us a more open view to the world and consequently makes us better citizens. I would like to plea to anyone who has the relevant skills to get involved.
The preliminary training I completed before the classes and the support from the coordinators made my volunteering a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The Facebook group and the online meetings throughout the course are an invaluable way of staying in touch and sharing ideas.
I’ve learnt many things, from finding circumstantially appropriate materials to suit disadvantaged populations, to adapting and navigating new technologies and classroom platforms, I was challenged as a teacher in entirely new ways. Not only was I able to improve my lesson-planning abilities and digital communication, but my adaptability, patience, and empathy increased, as well.
