Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
Since the volunteer with share the apartment with us they will experience living like locals. They will know a country that has been closed for 50 years. We go often to the beach that is very close and good. 40 km from Tirane are some wonderful sandy beaches and when the weather is good you can also swim even in spring. Albania is little know in Europe but every visitor is eager to come again after his/her first visit. Explore the city, enjoy your time, and have fun.
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Fjona is in the b2 level in French language. She is studying with Alter Ego plus books. Teaching her with these books, going around and speaking french in her free time is all we are interested for. We live in a comfortable house close to the city center. Everybody that has visited Albanian wants to return again, for the beautiful nature, good food, welcoming people and many other things. The volunteers is invited to share the life with us. We would like to find a female volunteer that is interested to meet new people and see new places also to help Fjona practice her language. It would be a great opportunity for her, to have someone to talk French, and also assist/teach her in french language
The best choice for us, is that volunteer to share the room with our daughter but also other solution are possible if needed. Internet and PC available when needed.
