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.
