Advanced language practice with native speakers in exchange for meals and accommodation


Did you learn a new language and do you want practice speaking?

What could be better than practicing a language with native speakers in a country that speaks this language? It's proven that a good command of a language comes with practicing, over and over again. Doing real conversations with natives, living between native people and hearing/reading the words that native people use, can best bridge the difference between an average speaker and an expert speaker. It is experience that makes the difference. Hovos offers you this possibility by sending volunteers to you, in exchange for meals and accommodation. Or do you want to learn a totally new language?

Wins from this experience

Learning new languages means developing yourself. It gives you the opportunity to express yourself in a way people easily understand you. Our volunteers can teach you for example how to make small conversations, how to use formal sentences and make you comfortable with grammar rules.
