"I decided to become a buddy and spend some of my free time in this adventure because I knew how worthwhile could be to volunteer in order to help people who are trying to discover a new language. The hours I spent with my students were amazing, and I could learn more about myself, about my own country, as well as discover some great new people. I would absolutely recommend this opportunity to everyone who loves languages and is willing to share their expertise!" Lois, Buddy for Spanish
