  • 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.

    Michael Black
  • 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.
