Volunteering to help local communities is an interesting alternative to simply attending a language course.
English Conversation Club is in contact with associations all over the world that are looking for volunteers. One can spend from three weeks up to a year helping with different projects.
There are no language courses, but participants will have the opportunity to be in contact with native English speakers all day long. These projects can include anything from helping to organise festivals, working on farms, whale-watching and helping children with disabilities.
Some choose volunteering to enrich their Curriculum.
English Conversation Club will try to match students to projects taking into account their interests.
By choosing volunteering, participants learn and improve their English and learn about a different culture in an unusual and inexpensive way.

How to volunteer?
- Contact ECC for an interview lasting approximately 20 minutes to discuss destinations and projects (in-house or over the phone). We will test your English to see what skills you have and propose suitable projects for you.
- Deposit the application fee of €150.
English Conversation Club will prepare the application and arrange accommodation (the deposit will be returned if the application is not accepted).
- Una volta che lo studente verrà accettato, dovrà essere versato il saldo del costo della quota d’iscrizione*.
Il costo dipenderà dal progetto. Alcuni progetti, ad esempio, prevedono anche una sistemazione e un salario.
Gli alloggi possono costare tra i €20 ai €25 a notte per pensione completa.
*The registration fee is €250, payable in two instalments.
My experience with the club, which started two years ago with the intention of staying in Ireland for four months, has proved perfect for my needs and has given me a lot. For the cost it has, derisory compared to the vast majority of agencies, what it offers is just the essentials, but more than enough: a connection with a host family, with a school (with a fairly varied range to choose from) and information on living in the place. I then found the subsequent communication with the agency quite prompt and effective, especially in the case of emergencies. There was, however, often a lack of basic seriousness, which, in my case, had no bearing on the experience. I have now been in Ireland for two years and the agency allows me to continue the experience privately, restricting the costs to family and school only. I am definitely satisfied with my choice.
Fantastic experience . Rita and her staff: perfect, serious, helpful, great support. My son had to stay 3 months in Gosport for the exchange of the 4th High School, he asked to extend to 6 months! The English family found by English Conversation came to visit us last summer, and my son who is now studying at university in a nearby city often hears from them and visits them. Very good organisation . I would recommend English Conversation to anyone who wants to have such an experience.
With this school, I have had the opportunity to travel around the United Kingdom and above all to improve my level of English, allowing me to study in Scotland today despite having started from a basic level not more than a year and a half ago, which is when I began this experience with the English Conversation Club. I recommend this agency to everyone both for the teachers, who have always been helpful to me and extremely knowledgeable, and for the opportunities it offers to study abroad in countries such as England, Scotland and Ireland.
Good, trained teachers help you improve your English. If you want to have an experience abroad, there is no better school to turn to than this one. Congratulations
