The Amsterdams Buurvouwen Contact provides language lessons to women at home who have to deal with social isolation for various reasons. In addition, the ABC offers women language lessons to women to support integration and lessons in small groups.
Working individually means tailor-made language lessons. The wishes and learning goals that women have are different. Together with your volunteer language coach you practice language and work on increasing self-confidence, expanding the network, passing the integration exams or moving on to group lessons.
Your language coach gives you a lesson of approximately one and a half hours. This could be speaking, practicing lesson material for civic integration exams or learning to read (better). Sometimes you mainly work on daring to speak. You build up the lessons together.
Your volunteer will receive extensive basic training from ABC. in this training they will learn more about how to give a language lesson. And they will also learn more about intercultural communication and about situations that you may encounter. You will then be matched by a volunteer coordinator. The click with your teacher is of course important.
Your language coach can come from your own neighborhood or in another part of the city. If you would like to attend group lessons, you are also very welcome at the ABC.
